This trail goes from the town Segonzano, passing through its little hamlets, down to the wild stream Avisio, flowing on the bottom of the valley Valle di Cembra, which is an amazing natural habitat.
This itinerary takes us from the town Segonzano to the stream Avisio, passing through some of the typical hamlets of the town (in the area of the town Segonzano there are 16 hamlets scattered on the mountain slope), which have kept the typical features of the little mountain villages. Walking across terracing fields and woods you will reach the ruins of the ancient castle Castello dei Baroni a Prato, which was the guard post for the bridge Ponte di Cantilaga, an historical crossing point of the valley, where also the famous painter Albrecht Dürer passed at the end of 5th century.
You need to follow this itinerary with the peace and quiet of the traveler, who stops to watch what is around. At bridge Cantilaga continue (without crossing the bridge) to hamlet Prà and then walk into the fields and the stream environment of Avisio.
The hamlet Piazzo with its narrow streets and its beautiful painted church deserves a visit either on the way to or on the way back.
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.
