A tour among the pyramids of Segonzano, the men of Segonzano “I òmeni de Segonzan” a rare and fascinating geological phenomenon
The trail Sentiero delle Piramidi takes us to discover one of the most fascinating geological phenomena of the all Trentino area: the earth pyramids.
Along the valley formed by the brook Rio Regnana, a small valley on the side of the valley Val di Cembra, an ancient glacial deposit eroded by water formed some high earth pinnacles with a big stone hat on the top and some peaks coming out from the wood. The big pinnacles with a big stone on the top remind to some human figures: the men (òmeni) of Segonzano. The pinnacles reach important heights and thanks to this trail you can have a closer look at them and fully appreciate their majesty.
Attention: during summer time you will need to pay a few euros ticket to enter this trail.
The trail is steep and south-west oriented. Therefore, we strongly suggest to avoid the central and the warmest daytime hours.
Once reached the hamlet Stedro its narrow streets deserve a visit before going 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
