A family-friendly walking trail along the path that, alongside the Sarca river, leads to the discovery of the hidden waterfalls in Val Genova.
Distance 9.7 km
A route, in the Adamello Brenta Geopark, for discovering the most suggestive waterfalls of Val Genova, alongside the river between conifer woods and little wooden bridges. Once you reach the Nardis waterfalls, which you can see from the road, leave your car in front of the "Cascate Nardis" refuge. The route starts on the right side of the refuge, at the end of the bridge, near the Sarca river. The soft ups and downs make it a path suitable to everybody. The route becomes shortest starting from the Ponte Rosso, just after the Fontana Bona refuge. In this case, after parking in the wide car park near the bridge, cross the bridge and take the path no. 214, which in about 15-20 minutes, lead to the roaring waterfalls. The lawns of Malga Genova area perfect area for a picnic break. The Lares waterfalls are a fascinating show for the impressive roar and the foaming waterfalls.
The pastures of Malga Genova are perfect for outdoor playing and picnic breaks.
Remember that, in the periods of low season, some refuges are closed and there is not any kind of transportation.
