Walk in the nature to appreciate the variety of the cembrane vegetation and to discover an ancient system to cath the birds, a labyrinth vegetable of great charm and ingenious that it's called "Roccolo del Sauch".

Author’s recommendation

The stop is a must inside the Roccolo del Sauch to admire its articulated plant structure and relax on the grass in front. The Malga of Sauch shelter is perfect for refreshing yourself while eating trational Trentino dishes.

Public transport

Dalla stazione delle corriere di Trento prendere la linea B102 in direzione Cavalese (Trento - Cembra - Capriana - Cavalese) e scendere a Cembra. Non ci sono mezzi pubblici che collegano il Lago Santo pertanto il luogo di partenza deve essere raggiunto con mezzi di trasporto propri o a piedi.

Getting there

Provenendo dall´autostrada A22 del Brennero, sia da sud che da nord, esci al casello di Trento nord (distanza dal casello km 22,5), percorri la S.S. 12 del Brennero in direzione nord fino al bivio di Lavis, per transitare poi sulla S.S. 612 Lavis - Castello di Fiemme che conduce fino alla Valle di Cembra e poi all’abitato di Cembra, poi segui le indicazioni per il lago Santo.

Prosegui in salita fino a raggiungere un parcheggio lungo la strada con coordinate N46°12’0,2 E11°11’40,3 1075 m s.l.m. A circa 50 metri prima del parcheggio, ben visibile, parte la strada forestale da inboccare per iniziare l'itinerario (è presente un'insegna bianca e blu per il rifugio Sauch, segnale di divieto per le automobili e cartelli bianchi e rossi di segnalazione) 

Parking

È possibile parcheggiare nel parcheggio sulla strada per il Lago Santo (coordinate N46°12’0,2 E11°11’40,3 1075 m s.l.m.), sulla sinistra se percorsa in salita.

Equipment

Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.

What you should have in your rucksack:

 

  • water canteen (1L)
  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
  • First aid kit
  • windproof jacket
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • whistle to attract attention in an emergency
  • emergency telephone number Mountain Rescue 112

 

Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains.

And finally... don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views.
