Monte Corno Nature Park

The southernmost nature park of South Tyrol comprises the municipalities of Anterivo, Montagna, Trodena, Egna and Salorno

The Monte Corno Nature Park (Naturpark Trudner Horn, in German - Parco Naturale Monte Corno, in Italian), founded in 1980, includes an area of 6,851 ha. It offers the greatest variety of flora and fauna in South Tyrol due to its climatic diversity: The sub-Mediterranean climate dominates the south-western slope, whereas a harsher climate prevails in the north-east. The nature park is home to species such as the western green lizard, the wood mouse, the badger and the western capercaillie, but also to carnivorous plants including the sundew and the common butterwort. In higher altitudes there are the mountain hare and the northern raven.

The larch forests between Trodena and Anterivo, the wetland areas such as the ones at the Black and the White Lake, the "Lange Moos" moor and the "Pera Schupf" area and the shrubland vegetation of downy oaks, manna ashes and copsewood provide unique red-golden impressions in autumn. Two types of stones dominate the protected area, on the one hand the Dolomite rock, on the other hand the red-brown quartz-porphyry, both dating back to the times of volcanoes and glaciers that formed the landscape over thousands of years.

You can discover the secrets of the Monte Corno Nature Park in the two visitor centres and explore it along the three nature trails: the Trodena Legend Trail, the Anterivo Legend Trail and the Casignano circular walk. The Nature Park Visitor Centre in Trodena (Truden) offers interesting exhibitions as well as guided walks. It is housed in a sensitively renovated mill building, surrounded by a small grain field, a herb garden and an amphibian pond. Another information point can be found in Cauria (Gfrill), a component locality of Salorno.
