Hiking trail • Valsugana, Lagorai, Vigolana and Valle dei Mocheni
The destination of this trek is the little Alpine lake of Erdemolo. The first half of the itinerary, on a tarmac road through a wood, is not very attractive, but the second half is much more interesting, as soon as you leave the road for a trail and the views start opening up.
The hollow in which the small lake is situated is very picturesque, at the foot of the Pizzo Alto and Monte del Lago. Very suggestive, and emblematic of Lake Erdemolo, is the small snowfield, which remains throughout summer, unless the season is very hot, and practically “leaps” into the lake.
- This itinerary is suitable for families with children who are used to walking.
- On the way back you can take a 5-10 minute detour to pass by the Mining Museum, not far from Maso Erdemolo, where, for a fee, you can go on a guided tour into the heart of the mountain, along the tunnels excavated by the miners in the olden days.
Getting thereLeave the Valsugana highway at the exit for Pergine and then follow the directions to the centre of the town. Continue to Val dei Mocheni, along the entire valley in the direction of Sant’Orsola and then Palù del Fersina.
At Palù del Fersina continue straight ahead to I Battisti, a small hamlet just to the north of the main village, where, at the crossroads for the hamlet, continue straight on until you reach the end of the road, where there is a large car park and a no access sign.
