Riserva Regionale Zompo Lo Schioppo



The Nature Reserve and its outer protection area are scattered with several picnic areas and crossed by several trails. Some of them follow ancient routes created for the agricultural, forest, and breeding activities, others coincide with the trail network marked by the CAI (Club Alpino Italiano). It is possible to divide the various itineraries into two categories, thematic and hiking itineraries. Thematic trails are rather easy trails suitable also for not very expert hikers, children, and the elderly, are are equipped with descriptive panels favoring the reading of the landscape they cross, the history and nature of the places. Hiking trails are usually longer and more demanding, marked with CAI horizontal trail markers and with direction signs placed near accesses and crossroads.
The picnic areas - Lo Schioppo, Piano Sacramento, la Fossa - are provided with tables, benches, and fire points, toilets, and refreshment.

Advice for the Hiking Equipment
The hiking equipment varies according to the season hikers want to carry out the hike and to its difficulty level. In general, during the mildest seasons, the basic equipment will consist of a waterproof cloak, a light wind-jacket, the first-aid kit, mountain-climbing shoes, some warm clothes for emergency situations (i.e. a pullover), bivouac sheet.
During the winter, late in the autumn or in the first weeks of the spring, it is necessary to bring, besides the ordinary equipment, heavier mountain shoes, gaiters, and winter clothing which includes padded wind-jacket, warm gloves, wool socks, cap, etc. If there is ice, you must have crampons and ax.
In any case, it is advisable to bring a geographical map (IGM), a compass, an altimeter, and a binoculars of medium size, useful to sight the wildlife.
