Nature walk to appreciate the variety of Cembran vegetation and discover an ancient bird-catching system, a fascinating and ingenious plant labyrinth called 'Roccolo del Sauch'.

Author’s recommendation

A stop inside the Roccolo del Sauch is a must to admire its articulated plant structure and relax on the lawn in front of it. The Rifugio Malga Sauch is perfect for refreshments while savouring traditional Trentino dishes.

Destination

Car park on the street for Lake Santo (see the section "Getting there")

Turn-by-turn directions

From the car park, turn back a few metres onto the tarmac road and take the turnoff to the right that enters the forest, signposted "Roccolo Sauch 0.45".

Follow the forest road through the deciduous forest, ignoring the turnoff for Lago Santo. We recommend reading the descriptions on the information board about the “Riserva naturale Lagabrun”, not far from our walk.

At Pozze, choose the left-hand fork and continue along the pleasant road. When you reach Passo della Croccola, your destination is near and in five minutes you will reach the famous Roccolo del Sauch. It is worth approaching it and scrutinising its details, aided by the well-made illustrative panels. The hike continues following the signs for the Sauch refuge, about ten minutes away.

After refreshments at the hut, return to the main road near the 'Herb Garden', a herb garden, and continue eastwards. Still on the forest road, after 1.5 km you return to the hamlet of Pozze and from there to the starting point, following the outward route.
