Woods, malghe, meadows with expanses of daffodils and peonies in bloom, Austrian trenches and breathtaking views over Lake Ledro are all to be found along the path that leads to Dromaè and Cima d’Oro (i.e. Golden Summit), which owes its name to the colour it takes at sunset.
History, botany and hiking all come together in this unique corner of Valle di Ledro.

Starting from the car park, follow Via San Michele and the SAT 453 path. After a short while leave the path and take the forestry road on the right. Turn onto the botanical path, which leads back to the forestry road, a perfect position to admire the view. Leave the forestry road and take the sentiero austroungarico to the cross on top Cima d’Oro. Along the way it is possible to walk through the trenches dug by the Austrian Army during the First World War. From the top the path runs down along the ridge to Bocca Dromaè, Malga Dromaè and Fienili di Dromaè. During the spring the meadows of Dromaè fill up with daffodils and peonies. Take the SAT 453 path back to the starting point.
Valle di Ledro is connected to Riva del Garda by the intercity bus line 214 (Riva-Valle di Ledro-Storo).

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:
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.
