Dürer Path, stage 1: Laghetti - Pochi di Salorno

The first stage of the well-known Dürer Path leads through the deciduous forest above the Bassa Atesina area.

The starting point is hidden near the hydroelectric power plant of San Floriano north of Laghetti (Egna). On the first section the hike leads uphill past the old pilgrims hospice known as "Klösterle" through the forest to the village of Laghetti (Laag). On the southern edge of the village the signpost with Dürer's anagram "AD" indicates the way to the Amorthof farm. The asphalt road becomes a gravel path and finally an old ox cart track. Despite some steep uphill sections it is an easy path with a wonderful view on the Bassa Atesina area and the surrounding mountains - the landscape by the wayside suggests how it could have looked at Dürer's times.

Finally the Dürer Path reaches the Valle del Rio Lauco valley (Laukental) - the Rio Lauco brook forces its way through the gorge down from Cauria. The trail continues over a Roman bridge and leads out of the valley and to a landscape characterised by vineyards to Pochi (Buchholz), the final destination of this first stage of the Dürer Path. The small hamlet is located above Salorno and belongs to the eponymous municipality. The way back follows the same trail.
