Easy ring trail around Lake Terlago with some interesting nature points.

The route around Lake Terlago is just over 3 km long and is also accessible to less experienced hikers: there are no particular difficulties as the road is mainly flat. Along the trail you may encounter some special features of natural interest, which are illustrated on the explanatory panels placed along the route.  

Lake Terlago is made up of two basins. During the hottest periods of the year, these are almost or completely separated from each other. Various leisure activities are available on the first of the two, such as: two bars, a restaurant, a beach and the Lake Line Terlago where you can wakeboard towed by a pulley connected to a cable suspended above the lake. On the other hand, the second of the two basins is more natural in character, hosting various species of birds and no buildings or businesses.

Suggestions

On the second part of the trail, at certain times of the year, you can sometimes spot the herons who build their nests in the trees above the lake.

Safety guidelines

Please note:

  • During winter, Lake Terlago may be frozen: walking on the frozen surface is not recommended as it is very slippery!
  • In the event of heavy rainfall, the route may be flooded and so partially inaccessible.

The telephone number for the emergency services is 112.

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.
