A hiking trail with information boards that helps you to discover the beauty of Latemar, the geology and the Triassic world!
Discover the rocks that tell the story of 200 million years thanks to the information boards made by MontagnAnimata, the Muse - Science Museum of Trento and the Geological Museum of the Dolomites of Predazzo. The trail, suitable for the whole family, starts from the panoramic Passo Feudo and for the entire duration is distinguished by exciting scenarios and wonderful views. If you hike with children, we recommend to buy the nice playbook "Geotrail Dos Capèl, Triassic World" which, through the search for clues and samples of rocks, accompanies the little geologists by playing.

Directions

The trail leads through fascinating landscape (with views of some of the most beautiful mountains in the whole Alps, from Latemar to Marmolada to the Pala group and the Lagorai chain, and finally to the snow-capped peaks of the Tyrol to the north).

The panels placed along the way give a gradual introduction to the events and changes that created the fantastic universe of the Dolomites.
From the pass the path winds around the Dos Capèl with small changes in altitude and plenty of resting places.
