Bocco Small Lake Nature Trail

On foot Accessible Trail        Great Interest: Flora Great Interest: Wildlife 
  • Duration:  30 minutes
  • Difficulty Level: without particular difficulties

Bocco Small Lake is situated near Bocco Pass and is easily accessible from "A. Devoto" Mountain Hut. It is a small artificial lake around which the Park has created a nature trail. The trail, created paying particular attention to visitors with disabilities, is equipped with bookstands and a picnic area. The bookstands describe the flora and fauna of the wetlands and the naturalistic engineering measures that have been carried out to create the trail.

  • Location: Municipality of Borzonasca (GE)
  • Altitude: 919m a.s.l.
  • Trail typology: trail with a natural bottom, suitable for people with motor disabilities, elderly, and families with children.
  • Length: about 1,000 meters
  • Slope: from 0 to 5%
  • Car park: at the beginning of the trail
  • How to get to the departure point: From the exit of Lavagna toll booth, go ahead in the direction of Carasco. Once you get in Carasco, follow the SP road 586 of Val d'Aveto and, in Mezzanego, follow the directions to Passo del Bocco (SP 26 BIS) (Park road signs); go ahead in the direction of Varese Ligure for about 300m (specific road signs). The accessible trail with reduced slopes can be reached after going along a short stretch of dirt road by car (stop at "A.Devoto" Mountain Hut for the keys of the chain).
  • Difficulty: considering the presence of natural bottom, it does not have particular difficulties.
  • Accessible structures and/or WC: at about 300 meters from the small lake, at Bocco Pass, you will find "A. Devoto" Mountain Hut, accessible with toilets for people with disabilities.
