Moderately easy and relatively short route that leads to the discovery of the lower part of Val di Fiemme. Almost at the end of the journey you will enjoy the stop at the suggestive waterfall.
This route leads to particularly interesting places in the valley. Shortly after the departure you will find the building of the old Venetian sawmill, which is still working nowadays. Then a cycle path leads to the majestic forest of Val Cadino with high logs of spruce and fir. In Arodolo, at 1200 meters, your body can rest, while the view sweeps from the blue water of the Stramentizzo dam to the wonders of the green Val di Fiemme. At the end of the descent on the right you can admire the imposing Cavalese waterfall.
