The relaxing and green area of the Predazzo campsite naturally continues towards the Sottosassa area. Here the waters of the Travignolo stream have carved out a valley, sometimes narrow, dominated by a suggestive porphyry bridge called "Lizata". The view from above of the large boulders on the riverbed, the white foam produced by the flashes of the current, the moss and the vegetation that occupied the spaces between the porphyry boulders, give a Gothic atmosphere. At the crossroads you can choose to return with a ring route through meadows with old wooden huts, or to continue on the forest road that runs alongside the stream. The rock walls above it are a destination for climbing enthusiasts and in summer they are kissed by the sun from morning to late afternoon. The large flat stones near the stream seduce sunbathers, with the privilege of a very cold foot bath always available.

Author’s recommendation

The tour, very sunny in summer, is characterized in other seasons as a particularly humid and cool destination.

Bella piacevole piccola passeggiata, fatta con due bimbi uno di 5 e una di 8. Molti punti in cui fermarsi e mangiare per un pic nic. p.s. L ultima parte si cammina sull’asfalto quasi niente trafficato.
