This short circuit along the foothills of the Maddalene Group includes a narrow trail called “Lez” which back in time was used as an irrigation way.
Rumo is a small municipality formed of a series of districts at the foot of the Maddalene Group, and represents the linguistic divide between Trentino and Alto Adige. In this area the meadows dedicated to hay harvesting are steep and the mountain peaks stand high above. Our tour takes us from Corte Superiore to Mocenigo and then up to Val Lavazzè, where one comes across for the first time the now abandoned “Lez” canals. In dialect the term “Lez” refers to the old irrigation canals which are mostly flat in nature and cross the mountain ridges. This trail continues at the same height and heads west in the direction of Lanza, and then continues on the narrow roads which lead to the characteristic Alto Adige village of Proves. At this point we come on to a fun downhill single trail and then on to the bike and pedestrian path, Rankipino, and first we come to Corte Inferiore, it having a small church visible from afar, and then to Corte Superiore.
Whoever wishes to prolong the tour once arriving Val Lavazzè can continue uphill as far as Malga Lavazzè, and then it is necessary to return on the same forest path. Arriving at Corte Inferiore it is certainly worthwhile to visit the church of Sant’Uldarico.
The trail along the old irrigation canals is a little worse for wear in some parts and it is occasionally necessary to push your bike. There are no refreshment stops along this trail.

For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
