The route takes place in a wild and quiet area, where it is not uncommon to meet the typical fauna of the mid-mountain, such as roe deer, hares, chamois. Here silence and peace reign, on the places where the explosion of the bombs of the First World War rumbled a hundred years ago. The climb ends on the crest of the watershed between the Adige Valley and Vallarsa, from where you can enjoy a wide view. The pleasant and long descent completes a very satisfying loop.

Destination

Ala - ring route

Turn-by-turn directions

Departure from the center of Ala, towards the bridge that crosses the stream of the same name. Proceed north along via San Martino, then via Alessandro Volta and then along the Strada Romana. Arriving at the beginning of the San Valentino Valley, the road passes under the suggestive cliff that houses the sanctuary. Having climbed the first two hairpin bends, after crossing the bridge over the generally dry stream, take the dirt road on the right that runs alongside the stream, towards Passo Buole where you arrive after about 12 km and 1200 m in altitude. From here the route continues maintaining the altitude to move towards Malga Val di Gatto (ruins) on the opposite side of the valley and then descend along the ridge of Cima Perobia. The descent, always on an easy dirt road, crosses the localities of Pozzo Alto, Pozzo di Mezzo and Pozzo Basso until it enters the Provincial Road Ala - Ronchi at the crossroads at 324m, from which, turning right, you will soon return in the town of Ala.
