Destination

S. Croce church

Turn-by-turn directions

Start in Poia, at the intersection for Comano on the regional road towards Lundo. After parking your car, walk up the paved road clearly signposted “Agritur Mass Marocc”. Along a steep road with wide bends, through fields and orchards, you will reach the agriturismo. On the right of the farmstead, you will find a steep path leading through the woods. After crossing the border with the fields, arrive at a plain where you find a signposted path leading quickly to S. Croce church. Built in 1671and blessed during 1700, the church features a beautiful altar with two painted wood sculptures representing Our lady of Sorrow and S. John the Evangelist, plus precious decorations across the vaulted ceiling. After a visit to the church and a quick stop to rest, retrace your footsteps back to the plain. Leave the road you walked at the beginning on your right and walk up to the forest road which runs from Lundo to Comano. Follow the signs for Comano until you reach the centre of town. After crossing the centre, you will arrive at S. Giacomo’s church. Continue on the road leading out of town. Come to a shrine, bear right and follow the road all the way to Poia.

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.

Buona escursione tra gli abitati di Godenzo e la graziosa Comano. Molto bella la vista sulle Giudicarie Esteriori. A circa metà percorso sosta alla chiesetta di Santa Croce.

Tot aan Maso gemakkelijk. Daarna een uur klimmen tot aan Santa Croce die spijtig dicht is.
