Duration in hours
Distance in km
Suggested period

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.

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
Car park - Via San Michele, Mezzolago

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.

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.
