Tunnels, trenches and stairs hollowed in granite are the key elements that make this trail unique. It develops in Val di Rava and the masterpieces found on the way were made by italian soldiers in 1916.

The works were made in 1916 by the Italian military departments. It is a little frequesntato but of particular beauty. There are no structures managed for a possible lunch, in the huts there are rooms used as bivouac in case of need

Author’s recommendation

It is recommended to leave early in the morning, so take advantage of the cool hours of the day.

Turn-by-turn directions

Difficulty E: Excursionistic Route

It is a quite difficult itinerary since it requires a significant physical effort as a consequence of its length. At first, the forest route is followed and when arrived at Localita Fierollo, an alpine environment will represent the framework to the itinerary, with its alpine praries and larches. the path SAT 366 is followed that takes to Cimon di Rava, passing to the sides of the lakes Bella Venezia. After Forcella Fierollo, the masterpieces of the soldiers can be admired together with muletracks, tunnels, trenches, but it is only in the surroundings of the Pinnacolo made of granite, called "Frate", that the visitor has the chance to walk in the trenches but always taking all the necessary safety precautions. Once arrived at Tombolino di Rava, the path goes down along the homonym valley, passing at the side of Lago Grande and Lago di Mezzo, which are two crystaline pearls. The path 322 is then followed to reach Bieno.

Answer by Omar Ropelato · November 12, 2020 · APT Valsugana e Lagorai
Buon giorno Nicola, anche in questo periodo, è possibile fare questo trekking, nella parte bassa ci sono ancora colori bellissimi!. Essendo un trekking abbastanza lungo, pianifichi una partenza anticipata, dato che il sole tramonta in questi giorni alle 16.30 a disposizione Omar

La descrizione dice che si segue il sentiero E322 per tornare a Bieno , mi sembra sia il E332 o sbaglio ?

Bellissimo giro, anche con la variante più corta attraverso la Forcella Fierollo, tralasciando il Tombolin
