Safety advice for trekkers:
The Forra del VinadiaTrail is a circular trail equipped with two different levels of difficulty:
- A circular path suitable for an average hiker.
- An appendix suited to experts presents the typical problems of a equipped path by classified as EEA (Italian standards).
Considered the torrential regime of rivers is not recommended to walk during the copious rainfall, or when the weather forecast provide storms; be careful the flow can vary suddenly and can be a problem especially for path EEA appendix.
The track although with signals, is not always uniform and stable, and is scheduled to cross the stream, climb over rocks or crevices between them, across gravel soil or landslides.
The absolute most important danger is slipping, because the path is perpetually wet, passing directly into watercourse and climbing rocky shore in often on wet rocks and mosses and lichens covered.
Because of the high rate of humidity is not recommended travel during no-summer season when the soil is covered with ice layers or after a rain squall, or early in the morning and evening during or after the dew.
The path is not suitable for children too young, which must be accompanied by their parents to the presence of dangerous stretches. During the journey keep absolutely hands clear to secure grip and balance.
In the gorge there is no mobile phone signal, so it does not recommend the trip lonely.
The water temperature is almost constant of about ten degrees.
