The trail climbs among beech and larch woods before coming out above the tree-line where it begins to wind among rock, dwarf pine and rhodendron, the surroundings gradually changing as it rises to the summit of Monte Stivo at over 2000 metres above sea level.
There is an observation/viewing point near the mountain hut with a viewfinder and dial showing the names of all the surrounding peaks: Monte Baldo to the south, Brenta and Adamello to the west, and the lower Dolomites and Pasubio to the east

Getting to northern lake Garda / Garda Trentino
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):
Emergency telephone number: 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.
... 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.
