From the defence lines at the peak, a spectacular terrace overlooking Lago di Garda.

From Santa Barbara, above Val di Gresta, take the gravel road right in front of the fountain (billboard with hiking map), for a level route through vast cultivated fields. After circa 500mt. an intersection to the left will lead you into woods, while along the sides of the road you will encounter the numerous natural stagings of "environmental art" creations of the valley's elementary school students.

After a downhill strech you'll find the first remains of what s once an important stronghold and observatory of Austrian-Hungarian artillery.

Here following the defense line you arrive at the peak of Monte Creino, a spectacular terrace overlooking Lago di Garda. The return takes place along the long gravel road, slightly downhill, continuing on to the North toward Santa Barbara.

An easy hike, suitable for anyone.

Safety guidelines

Safety Tips

 

1.         Choose itineraries that suit your physical and technical abilities. Collect information about the area you are visiting and the trail’s conditions and get a detailed trekking map.

2.        Wear clothes and take equipment that suit the difficulty and length of your tour. Keep emergency gear in your rucksack, including first aid supplies.

3.        Do not go walking alone in the mountains. In any case, tell someone where you are going and report back on returning.

4.       Look at the weather forecast before setting off and always keep an eye on the weather.

5.        In case of doubt, go back. It is better to give up than risk bad weather or face difficulties beyond your strength, ability and equipment.

6.       Do not leave marked paths and do not take shortcuts.

7.        All described walks are in a natural environment and therefore their use is at your own risk.

 

This information is subject to inevitable variations, so none of these 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, it is advisable to check environment and weather conditions before setting out.

How to get there
Where to park
It is possible to park in Santa Barbara.

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:

 

  • 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

 

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.
