Trek ring to Monte Cimone
Hiking trail • Valsugana, Lagorai, Vigolana and Valle dei Mocheni
This unusual route climbs Monte Cimone from the northern slope and travels through an untamed, rarely-beaten environment. The first leg that alternates forest roads and trails is followed by a beautiful diagonal trail (Panoramic Trek – Sentiero della Pace) using an old military mule track, restored with reinforcements and the construction of magnificent suspension bridges. From this central point you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the basin of Caldonazzo with its deep blue lake: here the profiles of the Dolomiti di Brenta Group and of Carè Alto outline the horizon in an enchanting way. The top of the peak is reached by proceeding along the steep final part (trail No. 222), completely submerged in the forest. The peak is covered with very thick vegetation and the beautiful summit cross seems to be of inappropriate size compared to the tall trees adorning the top. You can trace your steps back to the departure point or follow SAT route No. 225 (Sentiero dei Piani) which descends directly to the northern slope. This option makes it possible to complete a beautiful trek ring.
EquipmentUseful: telescopic walking stick.
Getting thereFollow the national road SS47 of Valsugana up to Caldonazzo. Enter the town and cross through it in the direction of Centa S. Nicolò - Asiago. In the upper part of the town, after crossing the bridge on the Centa torrent, you will reach the Sports Ground with its large car park on the left. There are plenty of parking spaces.
