Description

This is a loop recommended for people who want to walk around Fiera di Primiero within a short period of time and no extraordinary physical effort. Despite the fact that it develops from the village of Fiera di Primiero, it offers a quite remarkable sightseeing. As a matter of fact, it is called Family Trail because this loop is the one, among three courses, suggested by Primiero Dolomiti Marathon for families.

Primiero Dolomiti Marathon is a running race taking place in Primiero in the beginning of July. Thus, if you will be around in the beginning of July, do not be shy and take a chance to enter the race and try whatever distance fits you the best!

The hike starts from the very center of the village of Fiera di Primiero (Cesare Battisti square). After the first kilometer on an urban terrain, which goes through the village to Vallombrosa park, a little bit of effort is required in order to climb up to the asphalt road on the bottom of Bedolé hill. After about 20 minutes of climbing along a path, once the climb is over, the way will not require any additional effort, since from that point on it develops very gently until its very end, featuring Pale di San Martino (Dolomites) on your back, Vette Feltrine on the front and the bottom of Primiero Valley with Piz de Sagrón (Dolomites) on the far background on your left-hand side.
