[ up ] [ The animals and the flowers ] [ the territory ] [ the valleys of the Adamello-Presanella group ]
Adamello Brenta Nature Park, in its two sectors (Brenta and Adamello-Presanella),
is furrowed by a number of valleys featuring dense vegetation and fast-flowing
rivers. For the inhabitants of the park these valleys have long represented the
best access routes, and over the centuries, despite terrible atmospheric
conditions, they have been adopted and maintained as communications routes. The
park’s major resource, in addition naturally to its environmental value, is
today not the grazing areas or even perhaps the timber (logging) and water (hydroelectric
power), but rather the great attraction that this alpine ecosystem holds for
tourists. And yet if numbers of tourists were to get too high, this resource
would run the risk of posing the greatest threat to the very survival of the

VALLEY AND FUMO VALLEY
You get to the Daone Valley along the main road no. 237 to Storo, turning
right at Lardaro in the direction of Praso-Daone. An asphalt road runs along
the Daone Valley for about 17 km as far as Lake Malga Boazzo and the Lake
Malga Bissina dam (about 1,800 m.). The Fumo Valley runs for another 7 km
from the lake. It is surrounded in the north-east by the peaks of the Caré
Alto subgroup of mountains (Cornac di Cavento, Crozzon di Lares, Cima
Valbona, etc.) and in the west by the chain of peaks that mark the boundary
with the Lombardy region (Monte Fumo, Cima Buciaga, etc.).
the Caffaro main road no. 237 from Tione you come to Breguzzo where you turn
right and continue as far as the Ponte Arnò Refuge (1,102 m.) and the Malga
Stablei. Through the valley flows the River Arnò which in its upper stretch
has two arms: the Arnò and the Roldone. The largest lateral valley of the
Breguzzo Valley is the Arnò Valley. From the Malga Stablei you can get to
the Malga Trivena (1,630 m.) along a mule-track. In its upper stretch the
valley becomes known as the Trivena Valley. The whole valley was the scene
of major battles during the First World War.
Javrè or Vigo Rendena take the road open to traffic which passes the Pian
del Forno plain and then park at Binola. From here the main routes start for
the upper stretch of the valley. The valley has three main branches: the one
in the east, through which the Rio Tecino river flows, is called Straciola.
The Rio Bedù flows through the second branch which in its upper stretch is
known as Valletta (upper and lower). The third branch, the Cavento Valley,
lies on the left bank at the foot of the southern slopes of the Caré Alto
peak. In the Middle Ages the San Valentino Valley was known for its pyrite
Spiazzo Rendena leave the main road no. 239 to turn westwards and follow the
signs for the Borzago Valley for about 7 kilometres as far as the Pian della
Sega car park, where the path to the Caré Alto Refuge (2,450 m.) starts.
The Rio Bedù di Pelugo river flows through this valley.
