Hike through the Val Bona valley near Ala

The hike through the deciduous forest, which is just awakening from hibernation, leads to the slopes of the Monti Lessini mountains near Ala, with a view on the Val d’Adige valley.

Ala, the town of velvet, is starting point of our circular walk which leads us to the lower slopes of the Monte Castelberto mountain and further into the Val Bona valley. Starting in the village centre below the church Santa Maria Assunta, we follow the marker no. 111. The path proceeds steeply uphill through the deciduous forest. Starting at 200 m a.s.l. we walk uphill to approx. 720 m a.s.l., so the ascent is a bit more than a walk in the park.

From some clearings and farms we can enjoy a beautiful view on the Val d’Adige valley and the mountain chain of the Monte Baldo. The now blooming cowslips, liverleafs, violets and Alpine barrenworts are typical signs, that spring has arrived. The path no. 111 finally reaches a forest path which we follow towards east. It proceeds along the slope of the Val Bona valley and finally downhill to the valley bottom. There we follow the marker no. 113 to come back to Ala again.
