Hike to “Val del Parol”
Orchids, lilies and gentians in the wildest part of Monte Baldo
The trail starts from Rifugio Graziani, and is an easy walk through the pastures of Monte Baldo to Malga Campo. Climbing from there, you reach Bocca Paltrane before heading down the opposite slope, and adventuring into the wild Val del Parol.
Here, from May to July the precious blossoms of Monte Baldo will accompany you along the route until Rifugio Campei. Look for the little gems hidden in the fields such as the red lily, the small blue gentians and orchids that enlighten the landscape with their colors, and also the green bushes such as the rhododendron and the blueberry. On the rocks you can find one of the rarest flowers of the mountain, the silver geranium.
The return is semi level with some amazing glimpses of Brentonico plateau. The stay in Malga Campo is ideal for tasting excellent cheeses and seeing animals in the mountain pastures.
A rather easy loop, requiring a basic level of physical training.
