It is a walk in the Centa River Park, immersed in ruins, waterfalls and expanses of gravel. It follows the ancient Lanzino road, that in the Middle Age was the only link between Trento and Vicenza (in old documents it is defined as "Via qua itur Vicentiam").

Turn-by-turn directions

Difficulty T: Touristic Route

From the car park the underlying field is crossed to take the unpaved road that develops along the River Centa flow. Afterwards the adventure park "Acropark" is crossed, in which the bravest people will have the chance to climb on specific trails hanging in the air (this can be done upon payment and under the control of experts). Going on with the walk, an uphill is found that goes up side by side with the artificial dyke "Molin Novo" and at its pendix it is possible to notice the ruins of a water sawmill. At the top of this, the ruins belonging to an ancient mill with the oven for the bread are visible. In the surroundings a little playground exists. Along the way, several ruins of similar buildings are visible.
Going further the waterfall known as "Valampach" appears, which is an undergroung outletof the Lavarone Lake. The artificial waterfall "Po Alt" is climbed up, and at its top a flat area is found, which was created by the action of rthe river that has deposited the gravel over time . From here on it is very difficult to go on, since the water has seriously damaged the way that would otherwise lead in a short time to località Coto, with the ruins of a tavern and a mill. The return follows the same way as the outward route, along which children can play with sand or in the playground. Along the way, various descriptive boards are found, with historical and natural information.

Molto bello con i bambini. Pranzo al sacco nel prato fuori dal ristorante Speck Stube. Percorso facile e vario. Tante possibilità di immergere i piedi nell'acqua e giocare in sicurezza.
