Comfortable walk along the Avisio river to discover the ancient covered larch wood bridge.

The protagonist of this easy itinerary is the imposing wooden bridge, unique in Trentino, an essential link to access the Cavelonte Valley. Cross the Avisio to the point where it is narrowest but also full of large stones. Walking along the banks of the river in the direction of Ziano, it is possible to see the waters that guard, among other minor species, the marble trout.

Kissed by the sun, this walk is ideal at any time of the day thanks to the favorable exposure of the entire route.
