Hike to Lake Tret

This year the temperatures rise already in April up to 30 degrees C, so a hike to Lake Tret offers some cooling and still some snow.

Wonderful weather and already at the beginning of April temperatures that exceed 30 degrees C... these are nice prospects for a relaxing day, even at higher altitudes of the country. We decide to hike to Lake Tret (Felixer Weiher). The romantic little lake is located in the Alta Val di Non valley, where South Tyrol and the Italian-speaking Trentino meet. Situated at an altitude of about 1,400 m a.s.l., our destination today is a bit high, but the very pleasant temperatures literally lure us into "freshness". We leave our car at an old gravel pit just above the village.

From here we follow the path no. 9. The wide forest road leads us without much effort through light woods and over meadows where the crocuses already shine in light purple and white. Following path no. 9 we reach the lake after about an hour. The contrast at this time of the year could not be greater: There is still some snow along the way and the lake is still covered with ice.

But nature seems to be awakening already and heather and crocuses are already blooming everywhere. We walk around the lake and the many information boards along the way give us information about flora and fauna around the pond. We then decide to stop at the Malga San Felice tavern (Felixer Alm) and take path no. 50 to return to our starting point.
