Lake Tret

Lake Santa Maria or Lake Tret, a protected natural landmark, is located in the upper Val di Non valley near the Passo delle Palade.

Not far from the 1,518 m high Passo delle Palade mountain pass, the connection of the Valle dell’Adige and the upper Val di Non valleys, the 100 metres higher located Lake Tret or Lake Santa Maria - “Felixer Weiher” in German, “Lago di Tret” in Italian - can be found at the foothills of the Mendola Ridge. Its name derives from the near locality Tret in the Trentino.

The lake is a natural bathing lake but also a protected biotope with very good water quality and popular hiking destination in summer. Fish, dragonflies and water plants have their home here. Information boards tell about the flora and fauna of the area. With its little island and the surrounding nature, Lake Tret is among the most beautiful forest lakes of South Tyrol.

The hike to the lake starts at the Klammeben parking space, near the village of San Felice. The 1-hour walk proceeds through the mountain forest and across beautiful larch meadows to Lake Tret. Besides this wide forest path there are also some other routes which take you up to the lake. A bit above Lake Tret there is nice tavern.
