Dos Capel Geological trail
The Dos Capèl Geotrail is a walk of medium difficulty for children and families. Take the cable car to Gardonè, then the chair lift to Passo Feudo, the start of the Dos Capèl Geotrail, a circular walk of 3.5 km (2 miles) with a height gain of 268m (879 ft). No reservation required.
The trail begins and ends in the same place, a few metres from the chairlift and the Passo Feudo Refuge. It’s sunny, with lovely views and takes about 2 hours, without need of a guide. The walk is suitable for families and children (up to 2 years they will need to be taken in a baby carrier backpack).
The best way to do the Dos Capèl Geotrail and discover the geology of these mountains is by using the clues and puzzles in the gamebook. You’ll need to be observant, and have a good memory and spirit of adventure. Come on a Wednesday and you can take part in the walking theatre performance (in Italian).
The Dos Capèl Geotrail is a themed walk with interactive stations curated by MUSE–Trento Science Museum and the Predazzo Geological Museum of the Dolomites. Of medium difficulty and suitable for children and families, it’s a great way to explore the beauty of Latemar, its geology and the Triassic era.
