Fantastic excursion in one of the most beautiful areas of Val Pusteria to do even with children.
Lake Braies needs no introduction, because it is the best known lake in South Tyrol thanks to the television series A step from heaven. It is located within the Fanes-Senes-Braies Natural Park, its waters are of a beautiful emerald green color and is surrounded by high mountains including the best known and the Croda del Becco.
Malga Foresta is located at 1,590 m between the Senes Group and the Hochalpe mountain range, on a beautiful plateau crossed by the Rio Fosco. It is a wonderful place to stop and relax. For children there is a small play area available.
The route is absolutely not demanding, it is within reach of children. You walk mainly on a dirt road and the ascent is only 137 m spread over 6.6 km.
For those with strollers, it is not recommended to take the path on the east coast of the lake.
From the car park of Lake Braies (1490 m), take path no. 1 which, along the western side of the lake, takes you to the bottom of the lake. Here you take path no. 19 which quickly leads to the Foresta hut (1590 m). You return to the lake by the same path. Arrived at the lake, turn right and take the dirt road, which then becomes a path. Now go along the opposite shore of the lake to the one made in the outward journey, arriving at the starting point.
