Hike from Sella to Corona

This hike through the woods near Termeno and Cortaccia is perfect to enjoy the late autumn atmosphere.

It is the end of November, the autumn is coming to an end and the Advent period is approaching. This period is perfect for a suggestive walk or a hike in the surroundings of Lake Caldaro. All those who decide for a walk or a hike at the foot of the Mendola Ridge, should start the tour in the morning because already at 2 pm the area is in shade and walking in these conditions could be not comfortable. We start our hike from Sella (Söll) near Termeno.

At the St. Maurice Church we follow the path climbing up along the road towards Castelvecchio to reach the signpost no. 4A “Zogglerwiesen”. The first part of the trail is an asphalt road which climbs up until some farmsteads, afterwards we walk on a pleasant forest path in the wood. In the Valle dell’Inferno (Hell Valley) we cross a bridge over the stream and we walk up to reach the Zogglerwiese meadow. Here we find a beautiful area with a fire protection pond surrounded by larches, which are dressed with the colours of the autumn season. That is the perfect place for a break, we decide to eat here our packed lunch and relax.

After the lunch we walk towards Corona, a component locality of Cortaccia, following the path no. 4. The autumn wood gives way to gentle meadows at the Lenzenhof farmstead until Corona. There there are several taverns. We come back to our starting point following the same path, as alternative there is a bus to reach Cortaccia, and then Termeno and Sella.
