The path we propose will bring you to the sight of something special, something unusual. You will not encounter rock towers or unclimbed peaks, but something smaller and perphaps less flashy, but equally valuable. For three days you will be sorrounded by the forests that separate Valle dell'Adige from Val di Cembra, an area that straddled two worlds as far back as Roman times, and you will find witnesses of the past and of the present of this mountain. First of all: the peat bogs, ancient lakes of glacial origin where the peat have reduced progressively the water surface, creating an incredibly favorable environment for biodiversity. In addition there are roccoli, mils and boundary stones that narrate forgotten tales. 

At the end of the day, you will find the heat of the shelter or of the hut: a plate of hot soupe and a glass of wine, they will help to remember what happened today and to dream of tomorrow's stage.

This itinerary it's designed and built from Sviluppo Turistico Grumes feat Rete di Riserve Valle di Cembra - Avisio, the Natural Park of Monte Corno, the subject of touristic promotion and numerous provate operators.
