A pleasant and relaxing walk on comfortable forest roads through the woods toward the mountain hut
This itinerary takes us up to the mountain hut Potzmauer, located in a lawns hollow surrounded by fir woods. This hut was once an alpine cottage and was abandoned after the farm breeding disappeared in the valley. It was bought and rebuilt by the Municipality of Grumes (now Altavalle), which entrusted Roberto Leonardi for its management.
On this way the peat bog of the lake Lago di Valda deserves a stop. It is an ancient lake which naturally aged and became the habitat of rare plants and animals.
The way back can be the same as the way to or on a circle trail on the opposite side of the mountain going along the steep slope overlooking the valley Valle dell’Adige.
Stopping at the mountain hut for lunch or just a piece of cake and then relax on its lawn is almost a must.
Even if this trail is not technically difficult and has no dangerous stretches, we always and in any case suggest to follow the general rules on safety for mountain hikes.
Trekking shoes or mountain boots
