Donnaiola pond and waterfall

Status Open

A hike with a "waterfall" destination is always a beautiful hike, even more so if it is in Quiliano’s backcountry valley and not high up in the mountains: the Donnaiola waterfall, hidden by thick vegetation, is very little known but truly spectacular with its 15 meter high jump and a beautiful lake with crystal clear water. The trail starts from a small village in Molini, whose name comes some of the buildings in this town that are used for grinding wheat and that were once powered by the driving force of water. The trail then goes through a hazel, ash and holly forest, crossing the Danè stream several times; every now and then on the trail's rocky bottom you can see furrows due to wagons constant passage. In the distance, among the trees there are Cerri village's houses while, near the trail, you find the ruins of the ancient "Dolarium", a medieval village's likely "strong house", and further the characteristic and well-preserved humpbacked "Ponte della Ratta", with its original walking surface, which allowed to reach Montagna hamlet. At the second crossroad, turn right following the signs to the waterfall, whereas if you turn left, in about 40 minutes you will get to Faia village. Cross the second bridge, "Ponte della Faja" to then go down towards the left on the riverbed. Follow the stream and you will get to a lovely field and from a crack in the rock you will see the waterfall that forms the lake below.
