The protagonist of this easy itinerary is the imposing wooden bridge, unique in Trentino, an indispensable link to access the Cavelonte Valley. It crosses the Avisio where it is narrowest but also cluttered with large stones. The "noise" of the placid waters of the Avisio will be the background to the walk along the stretch from the bridge to Ziano di Fiemme.

Author’s recommendation

An information panel near the bridge tells the story of this construction which, in its current aspect, dates back to 1896.
