Dinosaur Footprints at the Marocche

About
These footprins were left about 190 million years ago by different dinosaurs on what is now a few scattered rocks on the "Frana di Kas" area, the eastern-most part of the Marocche Biotope. At least one footprint is from a big herbivore, about 6-7 meters tall, while the other is from a carnivore. The footprints, discovered in 2000, aren’t very noticeable because the calcified rock, which makes-up a large part of Dro’s great glacial landslide, degenerates a centimeter every 1000 years due to Karst disintegration. A guided trail along the beautiful geological biotope, kept by the Tridentine Museum of Natural Sciences, takes you to the dinosaur’s footprints

Passing through this landscape(park) on its rolling hills, entering it from Dro, heading up around Lake Cavedine to Ponte Olivetti, and then coming back through it to Dro again makes for a great road ride. The bike path and road through this park is smooth. The hills are rolling and not extreme. The landscape is beautiful. You pass through grape vineyards. And there's even a bike café in the middle of the park, accessible from both sides of the bike trail loop. Well worth a visit. Add on a leg that goes to and from Arco, along the river, and you have the makings of a perfect ride.

Enjoy the walk through the Marroche di Dro, a protected area with rock boulders resulting from a gigantic landslide dating from a couple of millennia ago. Avoid the summer (or at least noon-time) for the place can be extremely hot. You will have a splendid view of the surrounding rock faces. From the dinosaur footprints, head south to the centrale de Fies and subsequently back north for a great walk around Lake Cavedine. Closest place for food and drink is the Windvalley Surf Center at the lake border.

Premise, you need to arm yourself with patience and a lot of imagination if you want to enjoy this place. There is convenient parking along the road, but then finding the path that leads to the footprints is a bit adventurous. Better to go equipped with suitable shoes, because the risk of sprains is quite high. The view is magical, truly evocative and out of this world, better if you don't come across cheering families screaming while climbing the boulders, as if they were in Jurassic Park and had just seen a goat eaten by a T-Rex...
The footprints are ultimately round holes on a flat stone, but it really takes a little imagination to go back and see enormous creatures walking on expanses of rock around you. In short, it is an experience worth having, also suitable for children as long as they are sporty, respectful of nature and have a bit of imagination (thinking about it, the same rules apply to adults too!).
