Loop-hike on snowshoes in Valle Messere
The Valle Messere itinerary, between the Maiella and Morrone mountains, within the municipality of Pacentro, is surely rich with lots of different views. Many are the locations crossed: from secondary grasslands shaped by the age-old labour of farmers and shepherds with their dry-stone walls and huts, to the thick beech-forest leaving sometimes space to beautiful views of the mountains. This hike is not difficult to those used to hike once in a while, and it ends within the morning.

Why not to miss it
The alternating of several locations is what makes this hike truly peculiar: secondary grasslands with dry-stone walls and huts, a thick beech-forest shaped into the form of tunnels, the crystal-clear stream located along the path that we will follow upstream until reaching an astonishing view of the snow covered Maiella. The place, little known, is the perfect fit for those wanting to enjoy the regenerating silence of nature in winter.

In the absence of snow, the hike will take place anyway without the use of snowshoes.
