The path


b. North Variant Difficulty Level E: the trekker has to walk north towards the villages of Fratta and Colmaggiore visiting the amazing “Via dei Murales”. Continue to Nogarolo and take “Via dell’Acqua” which passes through the location “Le Selve” and the little villages of Con Alti and Con Bassi up to Serravalle where you resume the main path. From Serravalle you go down to “Via Martiri della Libertà”, “Via Cavour” and “Viale della Vittoria” arriving in front of the Town Hall of Vittorio Veneto, the final destination.


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.
