Jacopeo d'Anaunia Path – VI stage

Photo from: Paolo Menapace

This is a very scenic stage that runs along the final part of the right side of Noce and then climbs up on the opposite side to Vigo di Ton.

This stage is quite demanding due to the altitude difference to encounter and overcome, and can be shortened if necessary by stopping at Crescino (after km 12.5).

In this sixth stage of the Path we take in Castel la Santa, once a monastery and hermitage of the Teutonic Knights; the Hermitage of S. Pancrazio, an ancient hermitage that offered accommodation to travellers on one of the ancient mountain roads that led to Madonna di Campiglio; in Segonzone we find the ancient church of SS. Filippo and Giacomo and Castel Belasi. At the end of the stage, Castel Thun, a splendid mansion that gave birth to the powerful Thun family and at least ten bishops in Trentino and Austria.

The sixth stage begins by returning to the pine forest of Flavon, you cross the lake and both arrive,at Cunevo. The pilgrim heads towards "Castel la Santa", once a monastery and hermitage of the Teutonic Knights. Continue towards the capital of Termon dedicated to Pope John XXIII and along an uphill forest road and a short descent you reach the Hermitage of St. Pancrazio, an ancient hermitage, located above Campodenno in a beautiful pine forest. Go past it and follow a farm road through orchards and woods that leads to Lover, then descend to Segonzone and then to Crescino passing through a chapel dedicated to the "Salve Regina".With the little train from Crescino towards Trento, cross the Noce in a few minutes and get off at the Masi di Vigo station on the other side of the valley and go up towards the village of the same name. Then a forest road, first uphill and then downhill, will lead to the gates of Vigo di Ton at the foot of Castel Thun, the end of the stage. This stage is quite demanding because of the differences in altitude that have to be overcome, it can be shortened if necessary by interrupting it at Crescino (km 12.5).

Equipment

Anyone who sets out and wants to get to their destination without problems must wear a good pair of comfortable shoes, preferably with a sculpted sole (like Vibram) and ankle protection (like hiking pedules), but in which the foot is firmly fixed to prevent the formation of blisters or, worse still, risk a sprain. It is also good to have a stick (or better still, telescopic sticks) to help you along the way, especially in some more challenging passages.
