This simple itinerary leads to the discovery of a small treasure of biodiversity; one of the protected areas of Trentino. Step by step, you immerse yourself in nature, discovering the flora and fauna that characterize the area. The walk is accompanied by the slow murmur of the Avisio river, which can be observed closely thanks to a panoramic walkway and some bridges crossing its small tributaries. The calm of the place is brightened by the chirping of birds, which can be glimpsed in their natural habitat thanks to a wooden tower; an ideal observation point to learn about the different species that populate the banks of the river.

Author’s recommendation

Curiosity: The Alpine tamarisk (Miricaria germanica), a very rare plant in Trentino, grows almost exclusively in this area.

Destination

Predazzo

Turn-by-turn directions

From the bridge, walk along the dirt road that runs along the Avisio river. Turn left following the path, close to the flank of the river. Passages in groves of hazelnuts, spruces, birches, and other shrubs alternate with meadows that invite you to pleasant relaxing stops. Following the indications, it is possible to take a short walkway, which leads to an observation point on the riverbed; back on the main path, continue in the direction of Predazzo.

Two wooden bridges allow you to easily cross the tributaries coming from the Lagorai, while a wooden tower offers a privileged point of view on the local fauna. The path then continues in the middle of the meadows of Predazzo, until it reaches an area equipped with benches, tables, and a fountain. Here you can learn more about the importance of the river thanks to the information on the tables of the "Rete delle Riserve Destra Avisio".

 

Return along the same path.
