Distance 5 km
Highest point1,212 m
Lowest point1,070 m
The relaxing and green area of the Predazzo campsite naturally continues towards the Sottosassa area. Here the waters of the Travignolo stream have carved out a valley, sometimes narrow, dominated by a suggestive porphyry bridge called "Lizata". The view from above of the large boulders on the riverbed, the white foam produced by the flashes of the current, the moss and the vegetation that occupied the spaces between the porphyry boulders, give a Gothic atmosphere. At the crossroads you can choose to return with a ring route through meadows with old wooden huts, or to continue on the forest road that runs alongside the stream. The rock walls above it are a destination for climbing enthusiasts and in summer they are kissed by the sun from morning to late afternoon. The large flat stones near the stream seduce sunbathers, with the privilege of a very cold foot bath always available.
The tour, very sunny in summer, is characterized in other seasons as a particularly humid and cool destination.

Easy walk not far from the center of Predazzo. Leave the car near the camping Valleverde. You walk a first section on a paved road and then, after crossing the ford on the Travignolo stream, you continue on a dirt road between the woods and pastures. Once you reach the ancient stone bridge "Lizata", turn left to walk back towards Predazzo between meadows and pastures. For those who have more time, we recommend continuing the walk.
From the Lizata bridge, turn right and walk on the dirt road, observing from above the suggestive stream that has eroded the sides of the short gorge. In a succession of small waterfalls and natural pools, continue until you see, on the left, the rock cliffs used by climbers. On the right you will find large flat stones where you can lie down in the sun and put your feet in the icy waters of the Travignolo.
