After a well-deserved rest, take the SAT 461 trail up the pastureland to the north of the alpine hut until you reach a clearly visible pass. From here, the panorama becomes even more extensive and satisfying, ranging from Lakes Garda and Tenno to Mount Baldo, from Pasubio to the Brenta Dolomites, the Adamello Presanella group and the nearby Ledrensi Prealps. We continue along the ridge, keeping to trail 461 and after a short descent through rhododendrons and alders we reach Malga Cogorna. Cross the pasture in a northerly direction, following the signs for Cornelle, until you reach the edge of the forest. Here the downward trail, always well shaded in the woods, becomes steeper in places and in a couple of hours brings us back to our starting point, thus closing a ring route that is definitely rewarding from a landscape and panoramic point of view.
Given the scarcity of water along the route, it is a good idea to have an adequate supply of liquids and, given the exposure, to tackle the climb early in the morning, especially in hot weather. This is a circular route that can be tackled in both directions, climbing first to Cogorna if you want to tackle the more technical part uphill.
Getting thereFrom Ponte Arche/Comano Terme follow the road SS 421 till Fiavé. Then drive following the Bleggio direction till frazione Cornelle.
ParkingParking lot in the center of Fiavé or in Cornelle area.
EquipmentThere is nowhere to stop off for refreshments along the trail so you are advised to bring water and something to eat
You need to be wearing 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.
What should you take when you go on a hike?
What you should have in your rucksack (for a day trip a 25/30L capacity should do):
- water canteen (1L)
- snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
- First aid kit
- windproof jacket
- change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
- make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
- sun screen
- whistle to attract attention in an emergency
Emergency telephone number: 112
Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains. When wet, a grassy slope, rocky slab or steep trail can be dangerous unless you are wearing the proper footwear.
And finally... ... don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views you come across all over Garda Trentino. And if you like, you can share your memories with us at #GardaTrentino.
