Shrine - Ecken Biotope Hike (Folgaria)
Easy winter path through the woods on the Forgaria Plateau
From the parking lot in front of the Shrine (on the other side of the road), follow the beaten track passing near the Casa delle Piccole Suore della Sacra Famiglia, which will take you rapidly into the woods, near the Ecken Biotope - a natural protected area complete with descriptive signs and directions. Once near the biotope, take the forest path that travels across the thick forest of firs before emerging back out into the open to the north. To return to the Shrine from the east, follow the sunny track (signposted as path no. 1) which passes slightly south of Colpi.
