Via ferrata “Scaloni di Ceniga”, in Dro
Hiking tracks in Anglone Mountain
The via ferrata track called “Scaloni di Ceniga” is an ancient route used in the past by the inhabitants of Dro and Ceniga for the collection of timber. In fact in various places on the route we can see the cableways used to bring the wood down from the hills.
The “Scaloni di Ceniga” route is partially furnished with iron handrails although there is no actual climbing involved. The walk is graded as easy and is very scenic. I would highly recommend it as a first experience of a via ferrata giving you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the equipment needed to tackle more challenging routes.
We can also walk only the first part of the route if you would prefer a shorter excursion, or are accompanied by small children. We can simply climb and return by the “Scaloni di Ceniga” without completing the whole circuit.
