With its rocky slope and hillsides covered in olive groves Monte Baone is a landmark of Garda Trentino. From here there is an absolutely spectacular view over the entire  area.

Arco has an extraordnary microclimate with agave and prickly pear thriving on limestone slabs, so that on crisp winter days there is a unique blend of Mediterranean vegetation against snow-capped Monte Baldo and the sunshine shimmering on the waters of Lake Garda.

The olive groves are an essential part of the Garda Trentino landscape and this trail is easy and suited to families with children who can have fun watching all the climbers in action on the Placche di Baone crag.

There is a fabulous view over the entire Garda Trentino area from Rochetta to Monte Baldo, stretching across the glittering waters of Lake Garda.

An easy trail suited to all, this is however a hiking trail and it requires the ability to walk on rough terrain. Some stretches run along the upper perimeter of the slabs so be careful to stay on the path

Punto di partenza
Parcheggio al Calvario - Arco

This is a 5 km loop that starts from the “al Calvario” car park at the beginning of the road which heads up from Arco to Laghel. The first stretch of the trail crosses the Fontanelle olive groves, then runs beneath the sheer rock walls of “Bus de la Stria” as far as the Placche del Baone slabs.

The path proceeds along the side of the rocky slopy and a short, steeper stretch takes you to the top, while the view opens out over the entire Garda Trentino area. When you get to Sorgenti di Moline, head back towards Arco through the Romarzolo olive grove, passing the base of the Placche di Baone.

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):

  • 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 

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. 

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.
