A long, difficult route from Monte Terlago to the top of Paganella.
The trail starts above the village of Monte Terlago and winds up the slopes of the Paganella until it reaches the summit. The first part of the route, which leads up to the middle of the mountain, intersects a forest road several times, after which you will tackle the most difficult climb up to the San Antonio pass. The second part of the route continues along the western side of the mountain until it reaches the antennae located on the Paganella peak at an altitude of 2000 metres above sea level. At the top you can opt to climb as far as the "La Roda" refuge, the only refreshment point on the route. The Paganella peak boasts a panoramic view spanning from Lake Garda to the Brenta Dolomites, and from Trento to the entire Val di Non.

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.
