The path


  1. From Col San Martino the hiker connects with the “Sentiero delle Vedette” which will allow him to get to Soligo village passing through the Church of “San Vigilio”, symbol of Col San Martino and icon of the Hills, Monte Moncader (470 m), Roccolo (474 m), Monte Pertegar (485 m), Forcella Xocco, Pian Serafin (470 m), Colesìe (453 m) and Col Vinal (450 m), Forcella di San Martino (360 m), Col Maor (436 m), Collagù, known for the sanctuary that houses the remains of’ St. Aemilius Martyr and Santa Florida. The hiker has to con?nue downhill to the location of “Bosco Impero” and till to Soligo stream where he has to turn north. Here there is the variant of interconnection with the village of Pieve di Soligo.
  2. The next stretch runs along Soligo stream and shortly aier provides for the crossing of Campea stream by means of a bridge. Passing through the vineyards in Talponade, the hiker reaches Premaor, then continues offroad to North to Tre Ponti location. Then he passes through the little village of Marcita and reaches the Abbey of Follina. 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.
