Trekking at Bosco Caproni

An easy trek, ideal for families, sport fans and for those who love history and nature

8 KMS – 3-4 hours – ↑360 m ↓360 m

Did you know that not far from Arco there is a forest?

We offer a trip which goes back in time, back to the early 20th century surrounded by an uncontaminated landscape: an easy trek, lasting 3-4 hours and ideal for families, sport fans and for those who love history and nature, for those looking for the chance to spend a fun morning full of new experiences. The wood is situated on a little glacial terrace, that holds a multitude of secrets and stories, some of which date way back in time and are connected to the rock.

Programme

During this beautiful walk we will set off together from Arco. Just after the olive groves of S.Martino we will point our nose noticing many climbers on the overhanging rocks of the climbing crag of Massone Policromuro, one of the most famous climbing areas in Arco. On foot we will head up to the crags to discover the caves of oolite, a soft sedimentary rock easy for sculptors to work on, which was used till the beginning of XX century. We are now inside the Caproni forest. It is a wood of holly oak trees (Mediterranean oak tree), one of the few found at this latitude, thanks to the warm climate and the winds of Lake Garda. Here you will also find the largest and most fascinating caves of oolite, we can visit them inside and then set off to discover the “whale’s back” and trenches from the First World War. The view overlooking the Sarca Valley with its overhanging rock faces and the ruins of the mining houses finish off our tour.
