Bosco Val Brenta

Val Brenta


S. Antonio Mavignola / Val Brenta


A beautiful forest in the heart of the Adamello-Brenta nature park, which you can enjoy as you walk along the dirt road (closed to traffic) that runs from the Val Brenta parking area to Malga Brenta Bassa. It is a place of rare beauty and an absolute jewel of the Brenta valley.

From S. Antonio di Mavignola, take highway SS239 between Pinzolo and Madonna di Campiglio and follow the signs to Val Brenta. When you’ve passed the “Vivaio” and Agriturismo Pra della Casa and a few more curves along a dirt road, park in the area next to a gate preventing access to vehicles (the road you were just one continues to the right in the direction of Lake Valagola). Continue on foot along the same dirt road (trail no. 323), which rises slowly and constantly through a marvelous forest of larch and fir trees. After about 30 min., once you’ve past the view of a waterfall on your left and crossed a bridge over the waterway, you will get to the vast meadow of Malga Brenta Bassa, from where you can enjoy the spectacular view of the central section of the Brenta Dolomites. Itinerary suited to the whole family.


The Val Brenta forest makes for truly beautiful photos with its tall larch trees and lush firs, the sun filtering in through the branches and the spaces between the trees to create some stunning plays of light. Here you will feel the peace and silence typical of a great forest. The Sarca river flows around the forest and features falls and rapids that you will most certainly want to include among your favorite shots. From Malga Brenta Bassa, you can continue to the left along a dirt road and then a brief trail to the middle section of the Vallesinella falls (50 min. slightly uphill). The panorama at Malga Brenta Bassa is among the most iconic imaginable throughout the drier months of the year, from just after the thaw in April to late October, when you can enjoy all the autumn hues of the forest.


Avoid mornings due to the hard light from the sun overhead, which causes the greens of the forest to be overexposed. The ideal time is from at least mid-afternoon to sunset in order to have the sun to one side or at your back, when it will then shine on Crozzon and bathe the whole area in the warm colors of the sunset.
