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.
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

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.
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.
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.
From Arco follow the SS45bis road in the direction of Ceniga.
Free parking along Via Arco in Ceniga.
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.
