The evolution of the Alpine Region during millenniums has remarkably characterised the Park area, so that features of fluvial morphology are next to other typically glacial ones in a relatively small space.
Antique glacial arcs are still visible and still perfectly conserved in the upper side of valleys; in the immediate northern neighbourhood of M. Canin peak a small residual of glacier is still extant, as well.
In the valley floors there are numerous gorges and drops of river flows that give shape to spectacular rapids and waterfalls, among which the falls of Fontanone Barman and Fontanone Goriuda are particularly impressive.
