The Bucamante waterfalls are formed by the waters of the most important tributary of the Tiepido mountain stream, the Bucamante stream, which starts its course at Mount Monfestino. They are easily reached from Granarolo by going up the trail alongside the stream, or from Monfestino by taking the trails through the woods. From a nature point of view, the waterfalls are without doubt one of the most beautiful and evocative itineraries of the Modenese hills. The narrow Bucamante valley, lying between Monfestino and Monte Cornazzano, is one of the most precious natural areas of our Apennines. It is here that the Bucamante stream starts, going on to feed the Tiepido mountain stream. Bucamante is a particularly beautiful spot, ideal for walking and short ecological excursions suitable for all; it is reached by trails which start from Granarolo or Monfestino. The waterfalls are situated in the deepest part of the valley, dense with vegetation comprising hornbeams, maples, cornelian cherry trees, laburnums and oaklings. The microclimate permits the growth of orchids, peonies, wild peas, knotted geranium, ivy and old man�s beard - the tendrils of which render the woodland even more impenetrable - as well as a considerable variety of fish fauna. Lastly, legend has it that the Bucamante falls were the site of the tragic ending of a thwarted love story between a shepherd and the daughter of a dignitary of the Monfestino podest�.
