A trail in circle, a walk around the big larch trees of Capriana.
From the place Prà del Manz this itinerary goes smoothly uphill though a large and mixed wood of larch and spruce fir trees. Among all surprises you can find on this trail there is an amazing majestic silver fir tree named Pec del Bosnia. This tree was saved from the felling by an old forest ranger who decided to keep it as a heritage for all of us. Along the path larch trees rule the roost. They are humble and generous trees that with their light foliage let the grass grow under them so that the livestock can graze there.

Suggestions

The short path is appropriate for a walk. During autumn larch trees change their color to golden-yellow and give these places a magic atmosphere.

This trail is appropriate to combine the walk together with some Nordic Walking practice (Tables NW “Percorso della Peschiera”)
