This route is particularly interesting from both a cultural and naturalistic point of view: ancient villages, churches, historic fountains, nature conservation areas and much more to discover. Among the first points of interest are the Dosso panoramico di Miola, with a privileged view of Lake Serraia, the hamlets of Rizzolaga, Sternigo, Ricaldo and Baselga. For the less well-trained, the tour can conclude by continuing in the direction of the Miola Ice Stadium or continue on to the hamlets of Tressilla, San Mauro and Montagnaga, where there are further places of religious and natural interest such as the Sanctuary of the Madonna di Piné, with the Comparsa meadow and the Redeemer Monument, and the Laghestel Nature Reserve. In the final stretch of the tour, other amenities are discovered. From Montagnaga, climb up towards the hamlets of Grill, where, not far from the indicated route, you can visit the ruins of Castel de la Mot, also called Belvedere Castle because of its suggestive view of Lake Caldonazzo. Further on are the hamlets of Prada and Faida, where there is a water mill dating back to the 1700s, which can also be visited upon request. Also not to be underestimated are the small hamlets at the end of the tour, Cané and Fioré, villages surrounded by greenery and smelling of ancient history.

Author’s recommendation

ATTENTION: follow the gpx track and the directions on this page; route signposting is being placed.

The tour can be shortened to a tour in the north-eastern part of the Plateau passing through Lago della Serraia, Sternigo, Ricaldo and returning from Baselga to the Ice Stadium, or in the south-western part starting from Baselga in the direction of Tressilla San Mauro, Montagnaga and returning following the original route. It can also be walked in both directions without any difficulty. Strongly recommended are the unmarked detours on the trail to Castel de la Mot near the hamlet of Grill and the Rio Negro waterfalls in the hamlet of Erla.Steep sections: diversions to the Comparsa meadow and the Redeemer Monument and descent along the "Rosta", an old cobbled mule track connecting the Baselga cemetery to Tressilla. Attention also needs to be paid to the stretch from Fiorè down to Miola, as it is uneven in places.

Also suitable for E-MTB.

Destination

Ice Stadium - Miola di Piné

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting out from the Miola di Piné Ice Stadium, we head straight for the Dos di Miola viewpoint, passing through the homonymous hamlet. After admiring the view of Baselga and Lake Serraia, you descend, circumnavigating the latter in a wide loop that passes the nature conservation area between the two lakes on the plateau, 'Paludi di Sternigo', and reaches the dam that marks the beginning of Lake Piazze. The conclusion of this loop is reached by returning through the hamlets of Rizzolaga, Sternigo and Ricaldo. From here, the route continues from the old town centre to the Antica Pieve di Baselga, and then descends rapidly to the hamlet of Tressilla via an ancient cobbled link road that runs partly along the Rio Silla. When you reach the pretty little church of Tressilla, continue straight on in the direction of San Mauro, characterised by the ancient church that dominates the small village from the hill. Return along the same road to the little church and then head towards the Laghestel nature reserve in Ferrari. After carefully crossing the provincial road, continuing straight on almost at the top of the climb, we turn right onto a forest road that leads to the hump called the Dossedel, finally entering the pine forest of the nature reserve. Passing the Laghestel and joining and halfway along a new cycle/pedestrian path immersed in greenery, you reach the intersection with the road leading to the locality of Puel di Montagnaga. Turning left and then immediately right at the next crossroads, you reach loc. Comparsa, an area of worship emblematic for the plateau linked to the apparition of the Madonna with the Comparsa meadow, the bronze casting depicting the scene of the apparition to the shepherdess and the Monument to the Redeemer. We set off again towards Erla, a small hamlet of Montagnaga, where a little further downstream you can find the Rio Negro waterfalls, small waterfalls that flow out of a canyon, little known to tourists. From Erla, go up towards Grill along the provincial road from Pergine, and from Grill continue through the Dos de la Clinga woods until you reach Prada, a tiny hamlet below the hamlet of Faida. Here you will find the old water mill of the Moser Pressa family. A little more effort and you climb up from Faida to Cané and then Fioré, taking care from here to descend on a steep, somewhat uneven road to the starting point, the Miola Ice Stadium.
