The "Trodo dei fiori" (flower path) is a path of remarkable botanic – as well as landscape, geological and historic – importance, around the Brocon Pass (1616 a.s.l.). the path has a surprisingly diverse flora and it is still possible to spot traces of World War I long the way.

Thanks to its geographic position, the “Trodo dei fiori” works a unique belvedere on the underlying valley.

The best period to walk is during the month of July, when all the flowers are in full bloom; some species blossom early (or late) and can therefore be seen in their best form even at the end of June or during August.

Author’s recommendation

Flowers are protected by the law: flower lovers admire flowers but don't pick them up: they leave them for others to enjoy them.

Turn-by-turn directions

Difficulty E: escursionistic path

 

Departing from Passo Brocon the route initially follows an old World War mule trail, winding up a sunny slope through meadows and pastures. The fairly easy path is enriched by the alpine flowers, their vivid colours against the bright green grass.

Higher up the path becomes less steep following a rocky crest which houses a WWI trench. Flora of all types grows in profusion, even rare varieties, sprouting from the cracks in the rocks.

The return route continues along the mule path, giving the opportunity to see both the meadow and the rock flowers growing close together.

Getting there

From Trento take the SS47 Strada della Valsugana, direction Padova. Exit in Strigno and follow indication to Castello Tesino and then Passo Brocon.

If comingfrom the Primiero valley,  follow the road of the "Valle del Vanoi" to the Passo Brocon.
