The Road of 52 Tunnels — also known as the Strada delle 52 Gallerie — is an important part of World War I history. Built in 1917, the road was used to provide lateral lines of communications and supplies to the Italian V Corps in the Pasubio area. The Gallerie was needed to quickly move troops and equipment along a line out of sight and artillery fire of Austrian and Hungarian enemy forces.

Join BOSS as we hit the trailhead once the sun has gone down and the full moon has risen. The route is more than 10 miles long, and along the way you will enjoy scenic views painted by the moonlight (weather permitting).
