Full description
Visit the Gargano National Park, take a tour through the Foresta Umbra, named from the dark and shady quality of the forrest. The Foresta Umbra is located in the central-eastern area of the woods and is 800 metres above sea level. 
Beginning in the deer reserve. On the way, visit the 'Cutino' d'Umbra, titled a lake as it survives through summer, though there is no stream feeding in, only rain fills this lake. The lake houses fish, turtles and toads, and provides most water to the local animals. As there is no other water source, the opportunity to see fallow deer, wild cats, martens, badgers, dormice, fox squirrels and a host of birds of prey. 

The walk will loop around beginning the lake, traveling through beautiful forest, highlighting a small part of the Puglian forest, then skirting the Muflone Ranch and finishing at Falascone picnic area next to the lake. Majestic beeches and yews can be commonly spotted from the pathway. This walk is a two hour walk, and covers 3 kilometers.
