Rifugio Nino Pernici is on the ridge which divides the Garda area from the Valle di Ledro valley and can be reached from either side. It is a popular destination with hikers and bikers drawn by the marvellous views and excellent home cooking: a particular speciality is the potato polenta, a traditional dish in Valle di Ledro.
During the Great War, Bocca di Trat, a strategic mountain pass, found itself in the middle of the Austro-Hungarian defence line which ran from Rocchetta (the mountain which towers above Riva del Garda) as far as Tofino. A little village grew up here composed of barracks and army quarters. It was then that what is now the mountain hut -Rifugio Nino Pernici- was built as an officers' mess.

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.
