The "Trodo dei fiori" (flower path) is a path of remarkable botanic – as well as landscape, geological and historic – importance, around the Brocon Pass (1616 a.s.l.). the path has a surprisingly diverse flora and it is still possible to spot traces of World War I along the way.

Thanks to its geographic position, the “Trodo dei fiori” works a unique belvedere on the underlying valley.

The best period to walk is during the month of July, when all the flowers are in full bloom; some species blossom early (or late) and can therefore be seen in their best form even at the end of June or during August.

Author’s recommendation

Flowers are protected by the law: flower lovers admire flowers but don't pick them up: they leave them for others to enjoy them.

Destination

Passo Brocon

Turn-by-turn directions

Difficulty E: escursionistic path

 

Departing from Passo Brocon the route initially follows an old World War mule trail, winding up a sunny slope through meadows and pastures. The fairly easy path is enriched by the alpine flowers, their vivid colours against the bright green grass.

Higher up the path becomes less steep following a rocky crest which houses a WWI trench. Flora of all types grows in profusion, even rare varieties, sprouting from the cracks in the rocks.

The return route continues along the mule path, giving the opportunity to see both the meadow and the rock flowers growing close together.

Trekking, passeggiata in quota con un paesaggio incredibile 360° di montagne e vallate attorno. Consiglio di partire al mattino massimo le 9:00 perché il percorso è tutto sotto il sole non c'è vegetazione di alberi. Sono circa 2,5h con passo normale. Anche per bambini è fattibile basta che siano un pò abituati a qualche escursione in montagna se è la loro prima volta sarebbe un pò impegnativo.
