3. In the middle of the amphitheater

Diving in the morenic amphitheater, on “this side” and on the “other side”of the river, on paths which remind us the great Bottecchia and in the Cavazzo lake area, going back to Gemona after a tour on the eastern hills and finishing in San Daniele (from this perspective there is a nice view of its non-built silhouette….).

This path includes all the amphitheater altitude difference before the mountains and crosses unforgettable places; it is quite long, but not difficult, even if there are some rises (1201 m) and two crossings of the highway. In Venzone area you can possibly connect to the Alpe Adria cycle path.
