Antico Troi degli Sciamani

The Antico Troi degli Sciamani(Old Shaman Path), the “ultra” of the Fregona Trail Fest, is a journey through the Cansiglio forest and its legends. Caglieron Caves, mount Pizzoc, Cansiglio, Cimbri villages, mount Cavallo: through these places run the paths used by forest shamans to come down once a year to the plain, according to some tales.

Due to the reversed direction, the part of the race that took place at night in previous editions will be run during the day, in particular the ascent to Mount Pizzoc and then the descent to Fregona, with its amazing view of the plain below.

Briefly the characteristics: the first 13 km ascent up to Cadolten, then 26 km of ups and downs until the mysterious dell'Ander de le Mate cave and soon Forcella Palantina on the mount Cavallo Group, the highest point of the race; from here down to the Cimbri villages of Canaie and Campon, then up (more gradually, through the woods, but with many wonderful views of the Dolomites) to mountain Pizzoc at km 66; finally the gliding descent towards Fregona, the conclusion of this fascinating adventure in one of the most beautiful and least known places of our mountains.
