Monte Misone is a solitary peak on the north-west end of Lake Garda. Perhaps it is less well-known than the other mountains around the lake but the panorama from its summit is a memory you will treasure forever.
The trail up Monte Misone starts out with a very steep stretch but don't worry, it soon levels out and you have a marvellous view of Lake Tenno, its vivid blue standing out against the mountains below.
When you get back down, take time to stop off at Canale di Tenno, voted one of the most Beautiful Villages of Italy. The medieval historic centre has remained intact and gives the impression of a place where time stands still.

This information is subject to inevitable variations, so none of these indications are absolute.

From the car park in Calino follow the forestry road. After a short stretch take the trail on your left SAT 412. The uphill climb is fairly steep as far as Sella di Castiol (1350 m) where it levels out a bit. From the pasture Malga di Tenno continue in the direction of the Misone peak (1803 m). Go back the way you came.
Along the hike there is nowhere to stop off for refreshments so be sure to take everything you need. The hut on the pasture Malga di Tenno is normally open from June to September and can serve as emergency shelter.
To reach Lcalità Calino, you can take the intercity bus line 211 (Riva del Garda - Tenno - Fiavè - Ponte Arche). Bus stop: Ville del Monte.
Attention! Buses are not very frequent!
From the lower Sarca Valley follow directions for Tenno (strada statale 421). When you come out on the other side of the town you come to the hamlet Ville del Monte and turn right at the junction after the church. Go straight on past Canale and Calvola, head up the mountainside and follow directions for the mountain hut Rifugio San Pietro and the car park.
Free parking in Località Calino.
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.
