Opening of a lynx-themed educational forest path in Tarvisio

Posted - Jun 13, 2022

On Wednesday, June 8, 2022, the opening of the naturalistic-didactic path called “Lynx Trail” took place in Tarvisio. The path was created in collaboration with the Italian partners of the LIFE Lynx project, the Carabinieri Forestali and Progetto Lince Italia. The route starts almost from the center of Tarvisio; behind the “Palazzo Forestale” on the slopes of Monte Palla, and leads to two lookouts on the top. To the east, you can see Mangart Mountain in Slovenia and to the west, Camporosso and the valley. Along the way, many educational boards provide information on lynx biology, the challenges of coexistence and management, as well as the LIFE Lynx project. The lynx is an elusive animal, difficult to see in nature, but along the path 5 special silhouettes of the feline allow you to get an idea of ​​its size in a completely natural context. The path is a 5.2 km circular route, with a difference in altitude of 250 m (type E – hikers) and can be accessed all year round.
