Points of interest along this hiking trail
The environment is impressive. Baloc is a rock face hidden between two other cliffs, open to all but known to few. Get your rucksack and go because it is really worth while.
In front of the car park you will find some steps that go up towards Monte Baldo. From here starts a path going up through the fields for about 550m.
You find the "Baloc tacà via" in the valley on your left: go into this valley going down hill on a short path that you see on your left.
Once you are in the valley, after a few metres you will find yourself in front of a wall (about two metres high) that you have to jump over.
The wall is equipped with a ladder for getting up and down but be careful. Carrying on up the dry water course for another kilometre, you will find yourself in front of the Baloc.
The objective in some places is localised and the signal may be interupted: it is all in place up to the junction that takes you into the valley. Once you have entered the valley, keep going up.
- You should go there at least once, it's a really suggestive environment
- Don't try this trek on rainy days or on the days following a strong storm
