In the woods of Val di Fiemme

Picking up mushrooms near a waterfall and a monumental tree
MASI DI CAVALESE - SALANZADA – WATERFALL OF CAVALESE - MASI: From the church of Masi di Cavalese walk uphill towards Marzelin, then take the paved road to the large meadow, where lies the farm of Salanzada, a great place for a tasteful break. There, walk rightwards, along a little road in the middle of the grass and, once got to an isolated mountain hut, walk down on the right along a mule track in the middle of a forest that often satisfies any mushroom hunter. After having crossed the bridge over Rio Val Moena, you find the “Pezo del Gazolin”, a majestic monumental tree. Afterwards, walk across a giant meadow dotted with rocks of the Ice Age, then walk down towards the fantastic waterfall of Cavalese. From there you can go back to Masi along the cycle-pedestrian lane, or from the farm at Salanzada, you can continue towards another area full of mushrooms – take the direction to “Tabià-Val di Moena”, then walk down towards the Waterfall.
Medium difficulty – duration about 2/3 hours.
