This variant of the 732. tour unwinds mostly through woods, whereas the last section, the most panoramic, goes across the meadows above the village of Locca at the entrance to Val Concei.

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.
The route is a variant of the 732. Rifugio Pernici Trail Tour that allows us to avoid the most difficult part of this tour, the wild descent from Malga Grassi to Campi.
The entrance to the variant is along the road from Lenzumo to Malga Trat at a hairpin bend with a bar that blocks motor vehicles from entering (about 4 km uphill from Lenzumo and 1 km downhill from Malga Trat, shortly after the beginning of the tarmac road).
The descent is almost all on a forest road, with the exception of a well-marked section on a path. Shortly before the village of Locca, the forest road joins the tarmac road that descends towards the church and leads to the village, where we can take the 732. again to reach Lake Ledro or return to Riva del Garda.
Valle di Ledro is connected to Riva del Garda by the intercity bus line 214 (Riva-Valle di Ledro-Storo).
