NATURAL POOL A MADRE AND THE SCARPA WATERFALLS
Ascent. 250m / 2h30 AR
Remarkable area, in this mountain area where rocks are omnipresent, the waters of the Aïtone River weave through the boulder clusters but it has also made natural pools, successive ponds, fed by waterfalls and freshwater fountains. Downstream from the pools, the Scarpa waterfall is a sight to see.
It is this river that gives its name to the characteristic forest of pine trees.
Its source is in the Capu di Verghio mountain range.
The mountains are a difficult environment, especially during periods of bad weather.
Don’t forget that in summer, the weather can change very quickly at high altitudes and can provoke rapid increase in the waterways.
Always be well equipped: adequate shoes, clothing to protect you from the rain, cold and water.
Do not overestimate your capacities!
Respect your environment: don’t leave your rubbish and please be kind enough to remove that of those more inept than yourselves.
Never throw cigarette ends from your car window.
Nature – plants and animals: take time to observe and admire them, but respect them by leaving them in their natural environment.
Beware of the free roaming pigs: although very friendly, they may bite. Do not feed them.
It is strictly forbidden to camp outside of designated areas.
