Historical testimony of the Great War
In Trentino, near Folgaria, we recommend travelling the Forra del Lupo trail. Discovered only in 2014, while viewing paintings and photographs of Austro-Hungarian army soldiers, it was originally called “Wolfsschlucht” in Austrian, a name later Italianised and still retained today.
The route, about 5 kilometres long, is a trench dug by the Austro-Hungarian army during the Great War on the Martinella ridge, connecting the village of Serrada, still today the starting point of the hike, to Fort Dosso delle Somme. From here, at 1,660 metres above sea level, you can admire breath-taking views from the Adamello and Valsugana peaks to the waters of Lake Garda.
The path winds its way between two high rock faces and, along the way, many tunnels, observation points and walkways, as well as numerous informational panels retracing the events of the First World War. IT is a valuable testimony to the impact these events had on the area.
