A stroll through the peace and quiet of the forests to explore the historic Masi di Grumes area, a hidden corner of the mountains which has succeeded in conserving its original atmosphere dating back to the Middle Ages. The site’s names and toponyms retrace the origins of the farmhouses to German immigration to the Trentino from the 11th to 16th centuries fostered by the Tyrolean lords of Koenigsberg and the prince Bishops of Trento to raise tithes and preside over an important road between the Tyrol and the Adige valley. For around four centuries after their arrival the German farmers of the Masi di Grumes area kept their language and customs alive and left a profound mark on local culture.

This footpath links up the Pinteri, Orion, Noldi, Gaiardi, Giovanni, Todescat, Pojeri, Ferrai and Greggion farmhouses in their amphitheatre of woods and fields.

Starting in the square in Grumes town climb up along the church to the SS 612 road near the Green Grill. Cross the road and start climbing up towards the Grumes farmhouses, passing a historic chestnut grove and continuing to Masi Alti and then descending, after Maso Giovanni, in the direction of the lower farmhouses and returning to your starting point.

The itinerary follows an asphalt road with limited traffic.

Author’s recommendation

A stop that deserves a visit either on the way to or back is Green Grill - Info e sapori (information and taste), la Casa della Rete di Riserve (the house of the Reserves Network), which you can find along the main road S.S. 612. Here you can taste or buy some local product, receive information on the area, enjoy the valley from its impressing panoramic terrace.
