Geotrails

The Cross-border Geopark proposes a wide variety of geologically-related hiking itineraries that will make it possible for you to admire and get to know more about the many geological peculiarities in this area.

By activating the research filters, it is possible to find the itinerary that most satisfies your curiosity or skills: from the long-distance trails, following demanding paths, to proposals entailing short strolls through valley bottoms of a more touristy nature (according to the CAI – Italian Alpine Club classification).

For each itinerary, the data sheet provides a detailed trail each single geostop, locations in which it is possible to observe the peculiar geological characteristics of the area. Moreover, the necessary equipment, the most suitable period in which to visit and the relative altitude are specified.

The geotrails are itineraries mainly pursued on paths at a low, average or high altitude. There are several levels of difficulty, yet they all require, as does every path, a certain amount of attention to be paid. Choose your geotrail by bearing in mind your skills and always take care to wear appropriate clothing and take the right equipment with you!
