An easy hike of about 2 hours that links the 4 hamlets of Vezzano, Fraveggio, Lon and Ciago. The route starts out on an asphalt road from the village of Vezzano towards the village of Fraveggio and then continues on a secondary road to Lon. From this hamlet, the route continues along forest tracks to Ciago and finally to Vezzano. The tour can be hiked in both directions and is accessible all year round (except in case of snowfall or frost).

Author’s recommendation

From Lon you can see the lake of Santa Massenza in the distance and Monte Brione in the background.

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.
