Trail B06 from Patascoss to Lake Nambino is now fully accessible, open to everyone and able to meet the needs of the disabled. Just above Madonna di Campiglio, it is one of the most evocative corners of Trentino.
The trail starts in the area of Patascoss and is maintained by the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park. Parking is available at Patascoss, but it can also be reached by way of the gondola lift at the Colarin station in Campiglio. The trail that heads out from Patascoss, itself a popular spot for an outing, leads to the lake along a false flat, but it used to be a gravel road that was difficult for people with physical disabilities to use.
The lake also serves as a starting point for a great many outings, including the popular 5 Lakes circuit, so named because it takes you to Ritorto, Lambin, Serodoli, Gelato and Nambino lakes.
Set off lightly, enjoy this magnificent walk in our woods in safety, surrounded by nature.
Tips and hints
It is forbidden to travel by bike and on horseback.
From Patascoss, where it is possible to leave the car or which can be accessed via alternative mobility services, continue towards Lago di Nambino. The path, mostly flat, is even easier following the "barrier" works.
A low impact on nature and the environment.
So what were the main challenges faced when deciding how to make the trail accessible? In short: outcroppings of tonalite, where the trail narrowed to just a few dozen centimeters; the irregular surface created over time by rock slides and the roots of trees (given that the trail runs through the forest); and erosion caused by rain, surface water, and the footsteps of such a great many hikers.
The work that the Park and SOVA decided to perform entailed, first and foremost, work to level the trail and make a few minor route changes without significantly altering the path taken by the trail. At its narrowest sections, the trail was widened to about 1.20 m (4 ft). For the largest tonalite boulders that could not be removed without drastically altering the area’s natural beauty, the project involved building pathways out of larch logs and planks on top of the boulders, as well as guard rails in the most exposed sections.
Patascoss, the starting point of the itinerary, can be reached by cable car (from Campiglio-Colarin station) or by the alternative mobility services active during the summer season.
This enchanting corner of the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park can be reached (but not by car):
- with the Pinzolo-Campiglio Express cable car from Madonna di Campiglio (Colarin station) until September
- a 45 minute stroll along a flat trail from Malga Patascoss
Parking with limited number of paid spaces in Patascoss.
