An itinerary of naturalistic and geological interest that crosses the Argentario territory, offering beautiful stops between alpine lakes such as Lake S. Colomba and panoramic viewpoints such as Dos del cuz; art is not lacking either, thanks to the wooden sculptures that characterise the Sentiero degli Gnomi di Fornace (Gnomes' Path), part of the route.

Destination

S. Colomba lake

Turn-by-turn directions

 From Lake S. Colomba, follow the signs for 'dos dei brusadi' on the north shore of the lake, shortly afterwards take path number 421 to Monte piano/Fornace and, once you reach Val dei Ferri, follow the signs for 'le acque'.

This part of the trail is interesting for the beautiful wooden sculptures that we encounter on the path with an information board beside it on which the stories of the gnomes are explained.

After the sculpture of the "leaf-sweeping gnome", still signposted Dos del Cuz, take path 471 and after the sculpture "the old man", at the green stanga, go right. When you reach Dos del Cuz, the panorama opens out over Valsugana and Civezzano.

To complete the loop tour, from Dos del Cuz follow for Mazzanigo / Barbaniga; at other forks, take path no. 30 and then path no. 18 for "le acque" and "Lago di Santa Colomba", returning in a short time to the starting point.

Equipment

Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.

What you should have in your rucksack:

  • water canteen (1L)
  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
  • First aid kit
  • windproof jacket
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • whistle to attract attention in an emergency
  • emergency telephone number Mountain Rescue 112

Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains.

And finally... don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views.
