This site was designed and created by the to help make the trails and adventures of the Venetian Prealps known to all those who wish to discover new routes on foot or by bicycle. The site provides directions and data regarding routes, stages, support and points of interest, and useful information for organizing one’s own excursions.
In this regard, the authors and owners of the site www.trekkyo.com specify the following:
The routes described on the “trekkyo.com” website are of “Hiking” (E) difficulty with variants of “EE” (Experienced Hikers) difficulty for “trekking” and of varying cyclo-hiking difficulty, with even challenging sections, for those on “bike”, as more precisely indicated on other pages of this site or in downloadable documents from this site. These difficulties can also increase significantly as weather conditions and the state of the terrain (mud, snow, ice) change.
Markers along the trails are available, but nevertheless not continuously. In any case, it is necessary to be equipped with a topographic map and compass and to be properly trained in their proper use.
For all these reasons, every hike or cycle-hike should be prepared and approached with due precautions and care, adopting all the best-known and most common cautionary behaviors for hiking in the mountains and wilderness, including:
Clothing should be appropriate for the trail, environment, temperatures and weather.
In the case of hiking trails, hiking boots are absolutely recommended.
For cyclo-hiking routes, a bicycle in perfect mechanical condition is always required.
Carefully evaluate the walking time depending on your ability and training status.
Assess weather conditions (recent and upcoming) also to predict likely terrain conditions.
Do not venture out alone if inexperienced. If alone, always notify someone of your movements before setting out on each hike and give notice of arrival.
Follow the marked trail carefully and do not stray from it.
Carry a backpack containing everything needed for a mountain hike.
