Safety information

  • Prepare your itinerary beforehand
  • Choose an itinerary that suits your physical abilities

  • Do not hesitate in going back if you feel too tired

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the sports centre of Albiano, the route climbs along a little frequented tarmac road towards Lake Santa Colomba. You pass a place called 'Spiazzi', a children's playground and a fountain. The road stops climbing and crosses a porphyry quarrying site before reaching a place called 'Pra Nardot' where it joins the road to Lake Santa Colomba. Follow the signs for 'Mongalina' and carry on along a pleasant forest road that enters a wood. After passing the nice meadows of Mongalina, you reach a crossroads. Follow the signs for Lake Santa Colomba (trail No. 421). After a slight incline, the path climbs in earnest and finally opens out into the basin of the lake. Refreshments are available at the lakeside restaurant. Carry on along trail No. 421, which skirts Doss dei Brusadi (if you want to make a detour to the Doss, just follow the signage) before reaching Pian del Gacc. At a place called 'La Malga', ignore the tarmac road to Pian del Gacc and instead, take a gently climbing dirt road in the direction of Montepiano. Here you can follow the 'Sentiero degli Gnomi' (Gnomes' Path), a route dotted with wooden sculptures which tell stories about the wood … to those who know how to listen. Once you resume the main route, you soon reach a place called 'Pra della Casara'. From there, follow the signs for 'Pian del Gacc/Sentiero Montepiano e Gnomi' (trail No. 16). The path undulates across the wood. After a crossroads, you soon reach the tarmac road just outside Pian del Gacc (where refreshments are available). From Pian del Gacc, follow the signage for Albiano: a pleasant, mostly downhill path takes you back to the village and the starting point.

Equipment

Auch auf eher kurzen und einfachen Wanderungen sollten Sie immer alles Notwendige dabei haben, um keine bösen Überraschungen zu erleben und für den Fall der Fälle, zum Beispiel plötzliche Gewitter oder ein abruptes Formtief vorbereitet zu sein.

In den Rucksack gehören:

  • Trinkflasche (1 l)
  • Proviant (zum Beispiel energiereiche Snacks wie Trockenfrüchte oder Schokolade)
  • Erste-Hilfe-Set
  • Windjacke
  • Fleecepulli
  • T-Shirt und Socken zum Wechseln (am besten in einem Plastikbeutel verpackt)
  • eine lange Hose (diese sollten Sie zumindest im Rucksack dabei haben)
  • Mütze
  • Sonnencreme
  • Sonnenbrille
  • Handschuhe
  • Notfall-Pfeife
  • Notfall-Rufnummer der Bergrettung Soccorso Alpino 112

Zum Weg und zur Jahreszeit passendes Schuhwerk. Viele der Wege sind uneben und holprig. Die Schuhe sollten daher über den Knöchel reichen, um guten Halt zu bieten und vor Zerrungen und Verstauchungen zu schützen.

Und natürlich nicht zu vergessen... ... eine Fotokamera, mit der Sie Ihre Tour auf Bildern verewigen.
