Botanical Reserve Bes – Corna Piana
Blossoms unique to the world in Parco del Monte Baldo
The hike through Parco del Monte Baldo starts from Passo di San Valentino to then climb through the beech wood forest and scramble up the rocky crown of Bes. From here you can admire the dizzying panorama of Villaggio Pianeti and of Terre Verdi, to then reach the pastures of Malga Bes. From the meadows you will continue to climb to Rifugio Graziani then up the trail which leads to the peak of Corna Piana, famous for its native botanical species. Cross the military posts of Corna Piana’s most panoramic area, then head back down to Bes to complete the excursion by picking up the Passo di San Valentino from the path you started out on. An easier, possible variation: during the return from Corna Piana reach Rifugio Fos-ce and then continue along the road until Passo di San Valentino. A loop route with a small exposed stretch. The excursion to the Riserva Botanica di Bes – Corna Piana requires a basic level of physical training and is not suitable for small children or anyone who suffers from vertigo.
