Belvedere of Bezzecca

Duration in hours
Distance in km
Suggested period

An easy walk which unfolds from the village of Bezzecca through the Val dei Molini and leads up to a beautiful belvedere, a naturale terrace with a view over Lake Ledro.

The Valle dei Molini is one of serveral places in Valle di Ledro whose name points to the numerous water mills which once existed along the torrents of Valle di Ledro. Nowadays it is the perfect spot for a relaxing walk in the shade of the trees along the Rio Sacher, which streams into the Massangla torrent and then into Lake Ledro. The view from the natural balcony of the belvedere encompasses the plane of Bezzecca, Lake Ledro and the mountains of Valle di Ledro in the background, most prominently Monte Corno. The bench at the belvedere is the perfect spot for a selfie or a souvenir picture of Valle di Ledro!

Bezzecca is a place rich in history. Here, on 21 July 1866 the Austrian and the Italian troop under the lead of Giuseppe Garibaldi fought a battle during the Third Italian War of Independence, at the end of which Garibaldi famously answered the retreat order with Obbedisco! (I obey). Visit the War Museum in the village centre to learn more about it!

Safety guidelines

Safety Tips

  1. Choose itineraries that suit your physical and technical abilities. Collect information about the area you are visiting and the trail’s conditions and get a detailed trekking map.
  2. Wear clothes and take equipment that suit the difficulty and length of your tour. Keep emergency gear in your rucksack, including first aid supplies.
  3. Do not go walking alone in the mountains. In any case, tell someone where you are going and report back on returning.
  4. Look at the weather forecast before setting off and always keep an eye on the weather.
  5. In case of doubt, go back. It is better to give up than risk bad weather or face difficulties beyond your strength, ability and equipment.
  6. Do not leave marked paths and do not take shortcuts.
  7. All described walks are in a natural environment and therefore their use is at your own risk.

This information is subject to inevitable variations, so none of these indications are absolute. It is not entirely possible to avoid giving inexact or imprecise information, given how quickly environmental and weather conditions can change. For this reason, we decline any responsibility for changes which the user may encounter. In any case, it is advisable to check environment and weather conditions before setting out.

Punto di partenza

From the church square we follow first Via XXI luglio and then Via Tovi. At the fork we take the road to the right towards Derco and Agritur La Dasa. We follow this road, at first lined with houses, then with trees and fin the last stretch walking along the torrent. We leave two small bridges behind and then reach the junction with the SAT 459 path,which we take. We follow the path and then the dirt road which branches off on the right from a steep bend and leads to the belvedere. To return to thevalley foor we follow the small path to the left, next to the wooden fence. This path joins with the asphalt road in Derco.

Where to park

You need to wear 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?

Your rucksack (for a day trip a 25/30L capacity should do) should contain:

  • water canteen (1L)
  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
  • First aid kit
  • windproof jacket
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • whistle to attract attention in an emergency


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.

And finally... 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.
