The walk to Monte Mezzana starts at the 'Lagostel' fishing pond and runs for 6.5 km on a mixture of forest road and path.  The route does not present any particular difficulties and the altitude gain is fairly gentle. During the hike, you are always in a forest, so there’s a good chance of spotting animals such as roe deer, squirrels and badgers.  The road is very easy to follow and well-signposted.

Author’s recommendation

Perfect for a short walk in the shade on hot summer days.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Craft Area in Terlago, at the 'Lagostel' sports fishing pond, the hike begins along a forest road. From here, follow the signs that read "Giro del Monte Mezzana” (tour of Monte Mezzana). At a certain point the forest road ends, to make way for a downhill path towards the S.S. 45bis road, which you follow for a few metres following the cycle path in the direction of Vezzano.  At the crossroads with the "Giro del Monte Mezzana” sign, continue in the direction of Covelo, until you reach the opposite side of the mountain.  Then climb up through the forest to join the last part of the route and return to the "Lagostel" pond.

Equipment

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 Mountain Rescue 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.

Un percorso immerso nel bosco, alcuni punti dove si vede la vallata, noi abbiamo deciso di salire in cima al monte li si ha una bella vista anche sul lago di toblino. Percorso molto semplice ma poco frequentato, noi eravamo gli unici,strano considerando che era domenica. Consigliato!
