Rio Bianco waterfalls & Botanic Garden

Turn-by-turn directions

Along this captivating itinerary, you will come to appreciate two important aspects of the Parco Naturale Adamello-Brenta: its water and flora. The water element, prime resource for the ecosystem and for mankind, shapes and carves the landscape and is an integral part of this excursion which reaches the heart of the roaring Rio Bianco waterfalls.
From the main square in Stenico, start walking to the right towards the Information Office of Parco Naturale Adamello Brenta, which is also a gateway to the Botanical Garden and the waterfall. Walk up a dirt track heading towards the waterfall and then join a crossing path, carved into the rock wall, leading to Casa della Flora, where exhibitions and information about the area are on display. Continue ahead to enter the Botanical Garden which offers a wealth of information, displayed on panels, and fun interactive activities. From here, descend to join the road leading back to the square. Those wishing to continue the itinerary can join the Bosco Arte Stenico trail to admire artistic installations made only with natural material sourced from the surrounding woods.

Equipment

There 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
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • 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.

Buongiorno dalle Terme di Comano. Grazie per averci contattato. Il percorso lungo il giardino botanico di Stenico che porta alla Casa Flora del parco è percorribile a piedi con il bambino nello zainetto. Mentre, per quanto riguarda BoscoArteStenico c'è la possibilità anche di percorrerlo con un passeggino da trekking in quanto certificato con marchio OPEN per un turismo accessibile. Rimaniamo a disposizione per eventuali ulteriori informazioni e auguriamo una buona passeggiata.
