Route description

Leaving from central Malcesine, you head south along the Lungolago going towards the tranquil and beautiful Val di Sogno.

From here you go uphill for about a kilometre going across Dos del Pis. As you are about to cross the mountain saddle, turn your gaze towards the south and, after a short while, carrying on along the track you will find the whole of Malcesine before you, Monte Baldo and the north end of Lake Garda – views not to be missed.

From here you get to the Panoramica road and here you head off downhill to the left towards Malcesine, getting back to the Navene Vecchia road before long.

Straight after the Cable car station, turn left and go through some olive groves on a rough track. Go on for a few metres on the rough uphill on your right which brings you out onto a small pedestrian track which winds gently down through more olive groves heading north.

You will arrive in the hamlet of Campagnola within 1.5km and from here get onto the cycle path that runs along the lakeside, in a southern direction. After 3km you will have returned to your starting point in Malcesine.


You can easily do this trail in the other direction.
