A wild valley, the beauty of nature, the pleasure of the views on the peaks and on the valleys below where everything seems to fall down. A marvel to be appreciated with caution!

In this impervious valley live the chamois and the royal eagles nest. It is called Val di Gola. What a charm in this place and what a silence here. Turn off the phone, listen to nature and let your senses free to bring back sounds and sensations that probably you have forgotten.

This little corner of nature is not a simple mountain. You have to cycle (or push the Mtb) hard to get there. And it could also be a dangerous mountain. Below you is the “Orrido” with its gullies, ravines and precipices. Do not leave the safe path, do not be tempted by shortcuts.

For the rest, enjoy the sheer beauty of one of the most hidden corners of Trentino! It's all for you.

Turn-by-turn directions

It starts from the western part of the village Folgaria, at the end of the street Via del Parco. After the first uphill dirt road, the trail becomes softer. Further on, surrounded by a pleasant mixed forest of beech, pine and spruce, you reach the view point overlooking the “Val di Gola” valley. At the bottom, on the left you can see the Val Lagarina and the profile of the castle Beseno. Opposite there is the Mount Spizzom, where the royal eagles nest. On the right, at the top of the valley, you can see the Scanuppia plateau. You continue cycling along the dirt road, after a couple of hairpin bends, follow the signs indicating to turn right and go down the steep path. After a few funny descents, you return to the starting point.
