Route in Adamello-Brenta Nature Park Geopark. 
A pleasant walk in the woods in one of the ‘wildest’ environments in Val di Sole: Val Meledrio. Here the waters of River Meledrio will keep you company, while you gaze upon Sasso Rosso, easy to spot thanks to its unmistakable shape and colour.

 

This route is part of the Uno Di Un Milione project. Here, through the QR codes on the original water bottles and the dedicated app, you can take part in an experience of art, relation and participation that will help you explore the water running through Val di Sole, discovering how the community in this valley has creatively imagined its own vision of protection for the environment and future generations.

Safety information

The 10 rules for walking in the mountains:
  1. the feasibility of routes in a mountain environment is closely linked to the contingent conditions and therefore depends on natural phenomena, changes in the environment and the weather conditions. For this reason, make sure you are well informed about the route and conditions before setting out. You can do this by contacting your nearest Information Office;
  2. if you expect to reach a malga or mountain refuge, make sure that this will be open and, if you intend to stop to eat or sleep, call beforehand to book;
  3. leave information about your route with someone and always take your mobile phone with you;
  4. in the event of an accident, call 112;
  5. never leave litter in the mountains and, if possible, avoid leaving your rubbish at mountain refuges or malgas that you visit;
  6. if you spot wild animals along the way, we invite you to stay on the path, not go too near, not shout and to keep your dog on a lead, to stop it instinctively chasing and scaring the animal;
  7. face masks must also be worn in the mountains;
  8. keep a distance of at least 2 metres between you and other people;
  9. avoid sharing personal effects, instruments and water bottles with other people;
  10. take hand sanitiser with you and frequently disinfect your hands and surfaces.

Starting point

Folgarida

Directions

Close to Hotel Belvedere in Folgarida (1,350 m asl), pick up the “Ronzola” path on the left down to the so-called “Pont del Pastin” (1,213 m asl). Then continue to the left, along mysterious dense Val Meledrio, until, after an hour, you come to “Pont del Pison” bridge, from where you can just see the waterfall of the same name (visible closer up from a steep narrow path unsuitable for pushchairs that starts on the left before the bridge).

Public transportation

You can reach Folgarida by bus (download bus times out and back). The stop in Folgarida Belvedere is just a stone’s throw from the start of this route.

How to get there

On the S.S. 42 state road, continue straight on at the Dimaro roundabout for Folgarida. Once you leave Dimaro, the road continues towards Madonna di Campiglio. After 7 hairpins, you will come to the big car park in Piazzale Belvedere, and the route starts just a few metres from here.

Where to park

You can park in Piazzale Belvedere car park.
For this walk we recommend hiking boots and a cap, with a waterproof jacket, sun cream and a bottle of water in your backpack. Remember your camera or mobile phone for immortalising the views and favourite sights. If you like, you can then share them on social media at the hashtags #visitvaldisole and #spazioaltuotempo.
