Cascata del Lupo and the pyramids of Segonzano crossing the Val Regnana
Mountain tour • Altopiano di Pine' and Valle di Cembra
Itinerary rather long that guarantee a day of a helty walk, with points of naturalistic interest, long walk crossing in the wood on ancient mule track collocated in village strew along the way.
Distance 10.5 km
The beauty of this itinerary lies in particular in the amenity of the two points of interest along the route: the majestic Cascata del Lupo with a jump of over 30 meters and the site of the Earth Pyramids of Segonzano, which contains a geological phenomenon, dating back to the glacial thaw. Furthermore, relaxing paths and mule tracks that connect ancient villages, such as the silent village of Quaras, and the hamlets of Varda, Marteri and Piazze, make this itinerary ideal for those who want to enjoy slow tourism and savor the nature and tradition of these places. Most of the way back follows a stretch of the famous European path E5, undertaken every year by thousands of walkers willing to retrace this historic connection route, departing mainly from Germany and culminating in Venice. Despite the modest length, thanks to the moderate height difference, the practicability of the paths and the naturalistic points of interest, the route results suitable for all walkers, even for families with children.
