This walk unwinding through the woods and meadows of Legos reveals a less well known and less well-trodden corner of Valle di Ledro, which is just nonetheless as fascinating.
During the spring the meadows turn into a colourful explosion as wild flowers come into bloom. The alleys of Legos are a source of picturesque views. The botanical path is lined with trees of different species and its highest point is a viewpoint over Lake Ledro and the valley below.
The route starts and ends near the Pile-Dwelling Museum by Lake Ledro, UNESCO World Heritage Site. The museum tells about everyday life in a pile-dwelling settlement during the Bronze Age, 3500 years ago.
The telephone number for the emergency services is 112.
