Circular route along the old Roman road to Croina, among natural and historical wonders.
The rushing waters of the Massangla stream, the old Bugatini mill, the Gorg d’Abiss waterfall, the little church of San Giorgio with its onion shaped bell tower, the Roman bridge of Croina and the woods above Tiarno di Sotto. As the road and bridge of Croina testify, the ancient Romans were well settled in Valle di Ledro, geographic link between Lake Garda and the Giudicarie.

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.
