This is a trail for experienced hikers which leads to Cima Bassa and then along the ridge to the summit of Stivo, one of the most spectacular viewing points in Garda Trentino
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

Caution! SAT 617 runs along the eastern ridge of Monte Stivo and is very exposed in parts. It is classified EE, meaning it is only recommended for experienced hikers.
You take the path SAT 623 as far as Cima Bassa, where you continue along the SAT 617, in the direction of the hut Rifugio P. Marchetti. At the turn-off take the path SAT 617B which first leads up to the summit and then heads down to the mountain hut, where you follow again the SAT 617 and then the SAT 666 to Le Mandrie. Here take on the right the path SAT 666B until Malga Campo.
Drena is connected by the intercity bus lines 204 (Riva del Garda – Cavedine – Trento) to the other places in Garda Trentino. The nearest stop to the route is "Luch".
You can get to Malga Campo by following directions for Drena (strada statale 45 bis, take the turn-off to the right at Dro) and then continue as far as the junction at Luch, where you turn onto the forestry road for Malga Campo.
Free parking at Malga Campo.
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.
