A relaxing and oxygenating route, recommended for everyone, families with children (even with pushchairs) and budding bikers who want to experience their first thrill on a mountain bike. It allows visits to the 18th-century Maso Spilzi, the golf course, the Ecken biotope (protected nature area) and the Sanctuary of the Madonna delle Grazie (16th century).

Various aspects and points of interest are encountered here. The naturalistic aspect, given by the Ecken biotope, the relict of an ancient lake of glacial-karst origin and as such included among the Trentino wetlands worthy of protection; the sporting aspect, given by the 18-hole golf course; the historical aspect, given by the 18th-century Maso Spilzi, a mysterious fortified farmstead, and the religious aspect, represented by the 16th-century Sanctuary of the Madonna delle Grazie, where the miraculous Madonnina, patron saint of Italian skiers, is kept.

Safety information

As you can imagine, the practicability of itineraries in a mountain environment is closely linked to conditions and therefore depends on natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this sheet may have changed. Before setting off, find out about the status of the route by contacting the manager of the huts on your route, mountain guides, nature park visitor centres and tourist offices.

Folgaria est

Turn-by-turn directions

From Folgaria East we set off along Via Gen. Cadorna, reach the village of Costa, pass it and, before leaving it, follow the signs that lead us first to the characteristic Maso Spilzi, an ancient fortified rural farmstead dating back to the 18th century and then, after crossing a portion of the golf course, to the Ecken biotope. The protected natural area offers an ever-changing view of itself in every season. We follow, turning left, the beautiful little dirt road that runs along it back to back and which at one point takes us to the Sanctuary of the Madonna delle Grazie. Having visited the Sanctuary, we return to Folgaria by descending the easy asphalt road down the hill.
