From the bus station in Malcesine, head south and take the 3rd road on the left (the Strada Panoramica).
At the end of the first corner, Localita Colombere, take the first road on the right going uphill and, after a few metres, turn right again into Localita Crero. From here carry on straight uphill. You leave the tarmac road for a footpath in the woods, still going up (path 659) – there are a few steep parts (20-30%) but they are very short. The path is about 2km long and takes about an hour to do.
Arriving at a parting of the ways, take the path leading downhill on the right following signs to Cassone (path 9). This old mule- path is very steep but only lasts for about a kilometre and takes you straight down to Cassone where you turn right and carry on until you reach the main road ‘Via Gardesana’.
From here you walk along the cycle path north along the lakeside until you return to Malcesine. This last path is about 3 kilometres long and flat.
The gps track finishes in the old centre of Malcesine.
