Monte Corno Nature Park

In the south of South Tyrol, near the eponymous mountain, there’s the southernmost and lowest located nature park of the region.

About 25 km from Lake Caldaro, there is the village of Trodena (Truden) and the Monte Corno Nature Park, which extends at heights between 300 and 1,700 m a.s.l. It is one of the seven South Tyrolean nature parks, in addition to the Stelvio National Park. To be precisely, the Monte Corno Nature Park is the southernmost protected area of the region and also the lowest located one, since the others are located at higher altitudes, in the heart of the mountain landscape. Also the eponymous Monte Corno, a 1,781 m high peak of the Fiemme Dolomites, rises in this area.

The nature park covers a surface of 6,851 hectares in the municipal areas of Anterivo, Montagna, Egna, Salorno and Trodena - all of them are located in the south of South Tyrol - and is home to several animal and plant species, among them the edible dormouse and the badger, the great spotted woodpecker and various nocturnal birds of prey, the mantis and the fire salamander, as well as the fire lily, the carnivorous sundew, and a great variety of orchids and anemones.

The Monte Corno visitor centre in Trodena offers interesting information about this wonderful place as well as a children’s workshops with Daksy, the smart badger. Another information point can be found in Cauria (Gfrill). Also four theme paths snake their way through the landscape of the nature park: the Casignano Circular Trail shows you the beauty of this spot of land, the Kneipp recreational space “Sandegg” offers some relaxation, and the Trodena and Anterivo Legend Trails are beautiful family destinations. By the way: just as the Lake Caldaro Biotope, also the Monte Corno Nature Park is part of the European network for protected areas “Natura 2000″.
