An enjoyable outing through the forests to discover the Vallesinella Falls. The itinerary is recommended for when weather is unstable and higher altitude itineraries are not advised, or for families with children who are looking for a hike without a lot of elevation gain. This fairly easy hike takes you on a journey to discover the lower and middle Vallesinella Falls before heading down to the lovely Malga Brenta Bassa, which is an ideal spot for a picnic in an alpine pasture.

Author’s recommendation

Take note of the timetables of summer transport in Vallesinella before starting. A detour to discover the gorges is also recommended.
