The easy route starts from Via Castelbarco near Rovereto Castle, with the only steep climb at the beginning, before ending up on the historic 'Strada Vecia'. Passing the ancient settlements of Valteri and Campolongo on a cobbled road, you pass the 'Abitalbero' playground and the village of Zaffoni.

Higher up you reach the entrance to an old tunnel with a Great War cannon post and a splendid panorama.

Descending from the main route marked as the "Giro del Monte Ghello" (tour of Monte Ghello) you can also catch a glimpse of ancient abandoned stone quarries, while at the top of the mountain there is a cross surrounded by a suggestive panorama. After enjoying the beautiful view of the Adige Valley and the surrounding mountains, we arrive at the characteristic village of Toldi, from where we then descend towards the historic centre of Rovereto.

Getting there

The easy route takes about 3½ hours, with a difference in altitude of 300 metres. You start from Via Castelbarco and then take the steep climb of Via dell'Acquedotto (the only steep section of the entire trail), before finding yourself on the so-called "strada vecia". Along the path towards Noriglio, you reach the locality of Valteri and at the village fountain you turn left and enter the hamlet of Campolongo. Once you have passed the cobbled pedestrian area, you will find yourself in front of a capital with the sign "giro del Monteghello". From here you will pass the "Abitalbero" playground and the village of Zaffoni. From the village square you will find the signs for the route on your left. You will reach the entrance of a tunnel with a cannon post from the Great War and a splendid panorama.

Continue along the main path and when the road begins to descend, turn towards the abandoned stone quarries. Take the path northwards again and you will arrive on the rocks at the top of Monteghello, where there is a cross. After enjoying the beautiful view of the Adige Valley and the surrounding mountains, continue north towards the village of Toldi, from where we then descend towards the historic centre of Rovereto following the tarmac road.
