These three bolted trails are fitted with ladders and steel cables and linked to become an easy loop above Dro.

The rocky wall on the right side of the River Sarca, between the villages of Dro and Ceniga, is babded with a system of ledges colonised by holm oak. Up until the years after the Second World War, woodcutters and charcoal burners would scale the steep walls to cut firewood and reach the woods above from where they would send tree trunks and faggots of kindling down to the valley floor by means of rudimentary but effective telpherage wires.

The base supporting the telpherage, known locally as le Cavre, gave its name to one of the via ferratas. The other gets its name “Scaloni” (stairway) from the steps made to facilitate the ascent in the most difficult sections. Taken over and refitted by the association Associazione Crozolam, this loop is more of a trail with protection than a via ferrata, but for the sake of safety you still need to wear a helmet, harness and ferrata set.

Further information and useful links

Facing a via ferrata requires knowledge of the right technique of progression and some training. If you want to try out this experience for the first time or check the use of the via ferrata set, we recommend that you contact one of our mountain guides: Guides – Via ferratas with the experts

Safety guidelines

Safety Tips

  1. Only do the via ferrata if you are reasonably fit and in excellent health.
  2. Do not do the via ferrata in bad weather, especially if it looks like a storm is coming.
  3. Do not do the via ferrata alone: if you have an accident nobody will be able to call for help.
  4. The risk of rock falls increases if there are others on the via ferrata or with wind or rain.
  5. Always check route conditions; in winter you may find snow and ice.
  6. Use proper safety gear (helmet, harness, ferrata kit with double self-locking carabiners and energy absorbing systems). Put on your helmet once you get near to the wall in case of rock falls.
  7. During progression always keep both carabiners clipped onto the safety cable and when you pass the anchor points make sure at least one carabiner is clipped on to each safety cable.
  8. Only one person may be on any length of cable between two anchor points.
  9. Wear clothing and hiking boots suited to the altitude, the season and the length of the route and ferrata gloves.
  10. Pay special attention on the easy parts, where there are no cables.
  11. Always check the condition of the bolts and cables on the wall as they can suffer damage in bad weather.
  12. Carefully evaluate the crowding conditions and the state of preservation of the safety gear on the via ferrata. Beware, YOU are ultimately and solely responsible for undertaking a via ferrata safely and responsibly.

Directions

Access

From the Roman Bridge in Ceniga follow the road towards Maso Lizzone(NO car park). Take the SAT428 trail to the left, then turn right after a farmhouse and continue until you reach the Anglone crag.

Route

With short stretches over boulders and a partially exposed trail you come to a sequence of broad steps (1) and an easy chimney, which lead to a slab with steps carved into the rock. After a section of trail, you come to a series of stone steps and the final trail which leads to Dos Tondo.Here you are at the junction with the trail SAT428B Delle Cavre: head north along it to the Crozolam shelter and continue on the path SAT425 until the bolted trail Sentiero dell’Anglone, which first descends onto a rocky slab and then, through a series of chimneys and easy rocks, leads down to wide steps, which take you to the foot of the wall.

Return

Towards Ceniga, first take the Molinei track and then the Campagnola track along the river Sarca.

Dro and Ceniga are connected by the intercity bus lines 205 (Riva del Garda – Sarche - Trento) and 204 (Riva del Garda– Cavedine - Trento) to the other places in Garda Trentino.
