At the foot of Mt. Orsaro and Mt. Braiola there is Lagdei peat bog, the last evidence of an ancient glacial lake. In the wet grassland it is possible to find wild orchids like Dactylorhiza fuchsii and Coeloglossum viride. At the end of June you can see the white feathers of cotton grass, while in August the blue flowers of the willowleaf gentian dominate. Several butterflies, colored grasshoppers, and iridescent beetles choose to live in the peat bog.
Around the peat bog of Lagdei a new trail, about 400m long, crosses the most interesting environments rich in animals and vegetation. Developing on a flat ground, with long stretches of wooden pilework, the trail is accessible to everyone. It is completed by five interactive panels and twelve illustrated panels dealing with the evolution of the peat bog and the main species populating it.
An exhibit on the peat bog has been organized in the Park info point, in the mountain hut near the departure point of the trail.
In the cold waters of the streams running across the plain there is the brown trout and it is not difficult to sight the dipper. Colored dragonflies dart in the air looking for food, while the gerrids skate on the surface of the pond.
The surrounding woods are populated by roe deer, foxes, and squirrels; the chaffinch, the coal tit, and the bullfinch build their nest here. If you are lucky, you may also sight the Golden Eagle flying over your heads.
