The “sentiero ecologico”

The “Sentiero Ecologico” is a path which descends towards San Martino di Castrozza and starts from Cigolera, below Malga Tognola. From the Tognola mountain station, we take the forest road heading to Malga Tognola; after 30 minutes we get gradually into the woods: this section is the most beautiful part of the trail, with the sun peeking through the trees, illuminating our road.

After some bends, the path leads to the Val Cigolera forest road, which with an easy walk, following the directions to San Martino di Castrozza / Malga Fratazza, will bring you to the Tognola Gondola lift station.

Scanaiol Saddle

This path will lead you to one of the most beautiful und unknown spot of this area, Malga Scanaiol. An easy trail, one of the most panoramic among the hikes of the surroundings, which will make you feel unique emotions, offering a view on the entire group of the Pale di San Martino and over the entire valley.

The path starts gently on the ridges which are located above the upper station of the Tognola Gondola lift, continues on a first section with slight changes of slope to finally descend towards the Scanaiol Saddle. From the saddle, we may reach meadows of flowers and rhododendron plants which color our fairy-tale path of a wonderful shade of pink.

The path then descends very softly into the wood, and then comes back a few hundred meters below the pasture of Malga Scanaiol, where a wonderful view of the San Martino basin and the surrounding mountains opens up in front of the walker. Here, in a location where time seems to have stopped, we find an enchanting chalet and a cowshed, which are used during summer by some shepherds and theirs cows as an accommodation. The trail then starts again just below the Malga to finally reach the Malga Crel forest road that leads to the Tognola Gondola lift station.
