The ascent from the woods of Concei to the top of Monte Cadria is among the most demanding that Valle di Ledro has to offer, but also one of the most rewarding.
As one gets closer to the summit, the thick vegetation gives way to bushes, meadows and eventually edelweiss, the queen of alpine flora. On the roof of Valle di Ledro there is nothing to hinder the view, which is free to sweep in all directions, towards Lake Ledro, the mountains of Val Concei and Valle del Chiese. During the Summer cows graze the Alpine meadows of Cadria. Among the first sounds which strike the ear from Spring to Autumn is the whistle of the marmots moving among the rocks.

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.
