Distance 6.5 km
Walk in the tranquility in the wood to rediscover the ancient Masi of Grumes, a mountain corner which has managed to preserve the atmosphere of its origins, dating back to the Middle Ages. Names and toponyms of places lead back to formation of Masi at the german immigrations which involved Trentino between XI and XVI century, encouraged by the Tyrolean Lords of Koenigsberg and from the Prince Bishop of Trento to increase the tithes and guard an important link between Tyrol and the Adige Valley. For about four century from their arrival, the German peasant of the Masi di Grumes area, they kept their own language and customs, profoundly influencing the local culture. The path connects in a ring the Greggion, Ferrai, Pojeri, Todescat, Giovanni, Gairadi, Noldi, Orion and Pinteri Masi (farm) placed in an amphitheater of woods and meadows.
