The Val Brenta is a lovely and quite area; from here you can reach the Brenta Group from Val Rendena and it has many routes suitable for families with children and kids; besides, its fields are suitable for having picnic and for short walks. The valley is surrouded by the most famous tops of the Brenta Group: south-westerly the "Crozzon di Val d'Agola", the "Crozzon di Brenta", the "Cima Tosa", the "Cima Margherita", easterly the "Brenta Alta" and the "Catena degli Sfulmini", northerly the "Cima Mandron" and the "Punte di Campiglio". Enjoy admiring the so-called "Sentiero della Forra" path, that runs along the Sarca river, and the natural canyon.
Be careful of deceptive forks of the Brenta Valley.
