The path


  1. From the town hall of Vidor, the tourist has to walk in the opposite direction the UNESCO itinerary n°5 “Dal Sacro al Prosecco”, passing at the top of “Colle del Castello” (where the Ossuary stands), the Path of the Cypresses, the top of Col Carpenon (m 230), Mont de la Polenta and Col Castelón near which you can visit the sanctuary named “Madonna delle Grazie”.
  2. From here the tourist has to cross “Via Martiri della Liberazione” in Colbertaldo town and continue on the next itinerary n°6 “Il Col Maor” in Colbertaldo: then Cal de le Crode, vineyards of Col Giardino, Salt and Federa locations, Col Maor (m 368).
  3. Once town from Col Maor the trekker has to go up to Col Mongarda (m 421). Possible interconnection with the Valdobbiadene area through several paths to the north. Next stop in “Costa Grande” where there is a cross with an extraordinary viewpoint and later the tourist can reach Col Moliana where there are trenches of the World War I (m 445). Then continues down through the vineyards to Col San Martino. Overnight in the village.


The path is also an opportunity to experience a journey through geological history in three different moments of the world orographic formation. Looking at the map, in fact, the line does not run on the same ridge line, but alternates on three different “hogbacks” of the “Core Zone”:

  • From Vidor to the river Soligo we are on the oldest hogback of the Montello conglomerates (the youngest one is the hill of San Gallo in Soligo). We move on sediments of fluvial-delta environment (6-7 million years).
  • From Follina to Zuel di Là you walk instead on the calcarenites of Castelcucco , of the Aquitanian period (about 22 million years), very beautiful because they contain the famous whitish algal nodules (concretions of calcium carbonate) that stand out compared to the surrounding sandstone which is bluish-gray; The nodules were formed by algae from the marine environment with water depths of a few tens of meters.
  • The stage from Zuel di Là to Vittorio Veneto town moves instead on the Monte Baldo Formation, of the Serravalliano-Langhiano period (13-14 million years) composed mainly of gray sandstones, often with fossils of bivalves. These were also formed in a marine environment of limited depth but with a greater contribution of sand from the emerged continent.
