The trek leads up a steep mountainside sheer above the lake through dense Mediterranean vegetation. The main feature of this hiking trail are the marvellous views and the iron ladders on the steep walls of rock overlooking lake Garda: they counts more than 400 steps, so be ready to climb!
At the end of the path you can walk back taking the forest road or continue on the road to the bus stop on the main road to go back by bus.

From Park Busatte’s grassy area you head off for a spectacular hike along the Busatte–Tempesta trail, a nature route overhanging the lake which winds for 4 km and includes flights of metal stairs with a total of 400 steps. The route is mostly even with two climbs: Corno di Bò and Salt de la Cavra. This 90 minute hike through wonderful scenery, right above the lake in the midst of nature, flowers and geological phenomena, leads you to Tempesta.
From here you walk back to Torbole: at the junction with the road leading down to Tempesta, just go up the road till you reach againg the Busatte - Tempesta path near the first stairs or you can descend to Tempesta and the main road and go back to Torbole by bus of the A.P.T.V. line.
To get back to Torbole from Tempesta you can take the buses on the Verona - Malcesine - Riva del Garda line.
Bus tickets can be bought on board the bus with a supplementary charge or can be bought in advance at the Garda Trentino Tourist Information Offices in Riva del Garda, Arco and Torbole.

Getting to northern lake Garda / Garda Trentino
You need to be wearing the right clothing and take the proper gear when you go hiking in the mountains. Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.
What should you take when you go on a hike?
What you should have in your rucksack (for a day trip a 25/30L capacity should do):
emergency telephone number Mountain Rescue 112
Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains.
When wet, a grassy slope, rocky slab or steep trail can be dangerous unless you are wearing the proper footwear.
... don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views you come across all over Garda Trentino. And if you like, you can share your memories with us at #GardaTrentino.
