To the west, Valle di Ledro with its meadows and its villages. To the east Lake Garda with Monte Brione in the background. Trenches, walkways and military emplacements all point to the great strategic value of Valle di Ledro and Lake Garda during the Great War. The little church of San Giovanni in montibus (i.e. in the mountains), in its present form, dates back to 1985, but already in the 17th century there was a hermitage on the same site.

From the car park we take Via del Dazì to the right and then continue uphill on Via Cantodori out of the village towards the countryside. At the fork, we keep to the right once again and take the SAT 470 path, which we follow for about 2 km to the start of the via ferrata. We reach Cima Capi and continue ascending, at first on the SAT 405 path and then on SAT 471 path to Cima Rocca. We descend along a section equipped with ladders and cables to the Bivacco Arcioni and keep right to take the SAT 460 path, which then merges into the SAT 417 path. After reaching the asphalt road, we return to the village from the outward route.
Valle di Ledro is connected to Riva del Garda by the intercity bus line 214 (Riva-Valle di Ledro-Storo).
Exit the A22 motorway at Rovereto Sud – Lago di Garda. Follow the SS240 della Val di Ledro to Biacesa.

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.
