The starting point is Fonte Gajum. Here an easy mule track drives you to Prim’Alpe at 725m, where there is the welcome park center. Here you can take a rest visiting the inside museum and then restart walking choosing to go along the path of the “Spirit of the wood” or to take the mule track. We suggest you the first one. You see particular engraved wood signs noticing you are entering into the evocative path.
The walking is easy, even if attention is required in presence of kids (from 3 to 5). After a first descent, you cross a creek and then walk along the path alternating rising and descending parts until you arrive to the mule track you previously left. Go on the mule track you arrive to Terz’Alpe (800 m).
You’ll be fascinated by this evocative path because during your walking you meet elves, gnomes, the drunken donkey and other many interesting figures, together with bridges, small footway and a labyrinth.
We can clearly say this excursion is very family oriented: easy and evocative. We suggest you to look all around and we are sure you’ll be surprised.
For the descent you can take the mule track arriving firstly to the ruins of Second’Alpe and then reaching Prim’Alpe and the starting point.
