The eight acres of Parco delle Cascate di Molina
feature a myriad of natural beauty and trails of varying difficulty to suit everyone. To get to the park you should head to San Pietro in Cariano
and follow the signs to Molina
, a hamlet of Fumane.
Three possible routes: green, red
. The green one is easy
; it lasts half an hour will take you from the prehistoric cave to the Spolverona waterfall
, then the Black Falls
and Green Falls
and finally ending with a visit to the archaeological site of the Park. The red route of medium difficulty
, about an hour's hike, adds to the previous route a visit to the Cascata del Doppio Covolo
[Double Den Falls] and to the Cascata dell'Orso
[Bear Falls], and then turns and goes back up via the Pozzo dell'Orso
and the Cascata del Tombolo
and Cascata del Tombolino
. After the Cascata del Marmittone,
the trail merges with the second part of the Green trail.
The last segment, the black path
, classified as strenuous, requires two hours of walking. You can reach the panoramic overlook to view the entire park, the Pozzo Tondo
and the Grotta delle Tette More
, the most remote but also the most fascinating spots in the Park.
The paths of the Park are passable only on foot (pushchairs or bicycles can only reach the entrance). It is forbidden to enter the water due to the presence of endangered protected species. Dogs must be kept on a leash and can not enter the water.
