The route leads through forests and open areas where children can explore the many hidden corners and create fabulous adventures.Worth mentioning are the beautiful views at the top of the route and especially the areas of historical interest, a legacy of the First World War, with a tunnel in the rock bearing witness to the Great War.

Author’s recommendation

The area is especially enjoyable in cooler periods.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the car park, head in the direction of the small village, after which, after about 200 metres, climb uphill to the right through the vineyards. Shortly afterwards, the dirt road narrows to become a mule track near a fork with a path. Both paths lead to the top of the hill near the obvious stone cross. The wide, thinned-out area lends itself to games and exciting explorations for children.

From here, the route continues along a clear path, bypassing a large vineyard basin on the right. Entering the wood, the trail descends slightly and then curves to the left, taking us over a wide meadow with a broad view of the city of Rovereto and lower Vallagarina.

Continuing around the vineyards, a little later on the side of the path is the obvious access to a military tunnel built by the Austro-Hungarian army during the Great War. The more adventurous can visit it if properly equipped with headlamps.

A little further on, continuing in a northerly direction, it is possible to climb briefly to the left onto an evident small rise characterised by slabs of rock smoothed by the flow of the glaciers and from here descend again to gain access to the evident little road of the original route that winds its way through the woods and the countryside. After a short steep stretch that climbs to the left, you join up with the stretch that leads back to the stone cross and from here, along the same route as before, you return to the car park.
