Red Tape

•The numeration of the paths in this zone is cured from the local alpin club (SAT=Club of the Mountain climbers of the Trentino). Every path SAT is marked with white-red colours and a number. In this web page SAT XXX indicates the presence of a marked path SAT on the land with white-red signs and tables.
•The numeration of the roads into the Trentino means this: Axx means autoroute; SSxx means state road, SPxx means provincial road.
•The small valley Valtrigona, situated between the 1,600 and the 2,200 meters of altitude, is first Oasis WWF with alpine characteristics. More notices here.
•This zone is lend inside to numerous easy but generally remunerative excursions of the immensest area wilderness of the Trentino. Alpine shelters are least, but us it can be taken advantage of bivouacs and mountain barns restructured from the local communities for hiking use. For its beauty and running water presence I would to recommend like easy objective (1 hour from the Passo del Manghen pass) the Bivouac ANA Telve, that you can easy catch up by path SAT 310 towards west.
