Panoramic walk on mixed terrain between asphalt and rocky slabs, with views of the Val di Gresta, Lake Garda and Vallagarina.

We park the car at Passo Bordala and then set off on a not too demanding walk to Monte Biaena.  Initially, the road is asphalted, passing some meadows, and then taking the forest road into the woods along a path. Once you reach some rocky slabs, you can enjoy the panorama of Monte Stivo, Val di Gresta and Lake Garda in the background. Once past the ‘Capanna Monte Biaena’ hut, we reach the meadows at the summit, at an altitude of 1618 m. On reaching the summit, the view opens out over the Vallagarina and its mountains.

Trail not recommended on hot days. In spring the meadows are in blossom, among peonies and anemones the view is priceless. 

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
Albergo Passo Bordala
Directions

The first section of the route from Passo Bordala to the summit of Monte Biaena is characterised by a first asphalted and flat section, while the last section consists of a 300-metre difference in altitude over a short two-kilometre stretch. It is possible to return (with the necessary equipment and preparation) from the iron path 673 that descends to Malga Somator, otherwise from the route just taken uphill. 

public transportation

The Gresta Valley area can be reached from the other centres of Garda Trentino by the extra-urban bus line 332 (Rovereto - Mori - Riva del Garda - Arco - Bolognano).

Once you reach the stop in Mori, we suggest you continue with a shuttle that will take you as far as Passo Bordala.

How to get there
Where to park
parking available near the Albergo Passo Bordala

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.
