Safety guidelines
The information on this chart is subject to inevitable variations, so this means that none of the 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, the hiker is advised to check the conditions of the places, environment and weather before setting out.


Punto di partenza
Comano Paese
From Comano start climbing along the SAT 411 until you reach Monte Casale. En route you will come to “Le Quadre” area. Here, the view stretches to the horizon revealing a unique spectacle that only nature can offer: stunning panoramas, rolling luscious fields, green pasture and the entire valley with its hamlets dotted around the vast plain. After walking for about 15 minutes through the grassy fields you will reach the top of Monte Casale. Here, you will find a sign with arrows pointing in different directions to easily spot each peak and mountain range. Further ahead, a big iron cross close to the sheer drop over the Lakes Valley. Those with not much training in their legs can drive up to the sign restricting vehicular entry, near the television aerials, and continue on foot. Those who, instead, wish to enjoy the panorama without any physical effort, can purchase a daily permit – from the Panoramica Hotel in Comano-  and reach the car park near the fields only 15 minutes from Capanna Don Zio.
How to get there
From Ponte Arche/Comano Terme take the SP (provincial road) heading to Comano Paese (4 km). From here follow the signage.
Where to park
Free parking in Comano Paese; you can park:

- parking lot near the playground at the entry of the village

- near Hotel Panoramica

There is nowhere to stop off for refreshments along the trail so you are advised to bring water and something to eat

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):


  • 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


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.

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.
