A loop through the Parco del Monte Baldo. Descend from the San Valentino pass toward the pastures of Malga Pianeti. Then continue though the beech tree forest to discover the history of the mineral that rendered Brentonico famous. The terre verdi  (green soils) was actually extracted from the areas quarries, then processed and sold all throughout  Europe, and was even used for painting the facades of the stately palaces of Verona. Then climb back up the valley until reaching the Rifugio Fos-ce where you can rest or just take a break. Return to Passo di San Valentino along an easy road. A possible deviation upon the return:  From Rifugio Fos-ce to Bès and back from the “Sentiero attrezzato delle Vipere”.

Confermo quanto scritto da Domenico, il giro è molto bello tuttavia il sentiero non è ben segnalato e spesso sembra interrompersi senza un continuo

La passeggiata non è male soprattutto se fa davvero caldo visto che è principalmente nel bosco. Peccato però che ad un certo punto spariscono i segnali e sentiero. Noi siamo dovuti tornare indietro e prendere il sentiero che porta direttamente a rifugio Fos-ce (l'ultimo tratto è una salita spaccamuscoli!!)

Passeggiata fresca nei giorni caldi di estate perchè per la maggior parte è in bosco. Un po' monotona e senza grandi scorci panoramici. Interessante con una guida naturalistica che spiega i segreti del bosco e della zona attraversata. Bella a metà ottobre per i colori unici della faggeta nei prati sopra le Terre Verdi
