The final stage of the GardaTrek Medium Loop runs along the eastern side of Garda Trentino and ends with a spectacular view of Lake Garda.
In particular, a stretch of the Medium Loop runs on the Busatte - Tempesta trail, one of the most popular and beloved route of Garda Trentino. Its long, iron ladders are now a distinctive mark of the landscape and the views above the lake are terrific.
Along the route, we touch on several significant points for the history of Garda Trentino, linked in particular to the theme of the Great War (see more info). The Medium Loop in fact retraces part of the front line of the First World War, where many artifacts are still visible.
The Medium Loop route is entirely signposted. However, it is advisable to pay particular attention to the section that runs from Malga Zures to the Busatte-Tempesta trail and therefore to get a good map of this area.

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):
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.
