A very nice path inside the "Genova" valley, where the "Sarca" river flows (between the "Adamello" and the "Presanella" mounts). It's one of the official paths of the Adamello nature park. It starts from the Carisolo village, access by car it's strictly regulated. There are some toll car parkings and a bus leading to the end of the path (with many stops), so that you can enjoy the trail bu walk or bicycle.

We suggest to leave the the car at the F4 parking and start walking from here (or take the bus). We walked on the street Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park: We walked on the street until we found the Nardis falls Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park: Nardis falls (one of the most beautiful in the whole area), then we realized that the real hiking trail is parallel to the street and started walking on it just crossing a bridge Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park: crossing a bridge shortly after the falls. Now the path is inside the wood Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park: inside the wood, we rise a bit until we find the "Casol" falls Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park: the casol falls, than the trail come close to the street level.

There are many waterfalls along the path, we point out the following ones: Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park:

  • Lares falls Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park: Lares falls
  • Folgarida falls Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park: Folgarida falls
  • Casina Muta falls Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park: Casina Muta falls
  • Pedruc falls Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park: Pedruc falls

WARNING! On maps and park brochure, the distance between the F4 parking and the "Malga Bedole" (the bus terminal) is reported to be 14 km, but pay attention: this is the length of the paved road, the walking trail is much longer as it goes far away from the street many times in order to reach the falls. Besides, at the Malga Bedole Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park: Malga Bedole there is nothing to eat or drink, once you get there you have to walk one more km until you reach the refuge "Bedole" Val di Genova path, in the Adamello Park: refuge 'Bedole'.

To make it short: plan carefully your path, because if you decide to walk from F4 parks to the refuge "Bedole", you'll have to walk for 19 km and not for 14! According to our experience, we suggest to:

  • Leave the car at the F4 parking
  • Walk for half the path
  • Have your packed lunch (or eat in one of the refuges along the path, although there is no refuge at half the way)
  • Reach "Malga Bedole" ore "Bedole" refuge and then come back by bus

The path is really nice, but 19km with 700m difference in height is quite demanding, we don't suggest to walk all the path unless you are trained.
