The path of the monumental larches

The Saènt Valley and the several-centuries-old larch trees

On a steep slope above Prà di Saènt (the pasture of Saènt), a naturalistic and educational path has been created that leads the visitor to some twenty huge, several-centuries-old larch trees, most of which are located at about 1,900 metres altitude.
Length: 1,610 m
Drop: 610 m
Time: 1.30 h

 
The path of the monumental larches

These larches grow between large masses of rocks in one of the most beautiful areas of the Park, which is also known as the home of the marmot. Here, twenty-three marvellous green giants play the leading role that is usually reserved for animals. With their strange growth forms, the larches on this steep slope, up to about 2,000 metres altitude, reflect the difficult living conditions in the mountains. You may get a close-up view of these trees by following the stone path, consisting of some 700 steps, which was built by simply re-arranging blocks of rock found on the ground.
