Covering an area of 6,851 hectares, the Monte Corno - or Trudner Horn - Nature Park includes the five municipalities of Anterivo, Montagna, Egna, Salorno and Trodena. The protected area is bordered to the north by the Val di Fiemme (Trentino), to the southeast by the Valle di Cembra (Trentino) and to the west by the Val d’Adige between Egna and Salorno. The terrain is geologically made up of two different types of rocks: the bright dolomitic lime and the brownish quartz porphyry.
Due to its geopraphical position and the sub-Mediterranean climate the nature park, named after the 1,781 m high Monte Corno, features a rich flora and fauna. If you are lucky you might spot the fire salamander, the edible dormouse or the hoopoe. Furthermore you can admire fire lilies, orchids and anemones.
The building of an old electric mill in Trodena houses the visitor centre of the Monte Corno Nature Park. The mill is still fully functional. Recommended is a hike from Trodena to the Cislon mountain pasture and back. The path makes you explore the gorgeous alpine landscape and offers a panoramic view to the Brenta Dolomites, the Lagorai mountain range and the Texel Group as well as to the Zillertal Alps. Popular are also the two legend trails in Trodena and Anterivo - the region has a rich tradition of myths and legends.
