Easy walk on the northern shore of Lake Ledro, through the villages of Pieve and Mezzolago to the Pile-Dwelling Museum of Lake Ledro.
Lake Ledro is among the most beautiful and cleanest of Trentino and it stands out for its turquoise blue colour. A few numbers… Depth: 48 m. Surface: 2.187 km². Altitude: 655 m. Length E-W: about 3 km. Summer maximum temperature: between 25° and 28°. In 1929 the construction of the hydroelectric power plant in Riva del Garda was completed. With the partial lowering of the water level, 10.000 poles from the Bronze Age came to light. So began the history of the Pile-Dwelling Museum of Lake Ledro, UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The walk runs through the three beaches of Pieve, Mezzolago and Molina, which are ideal for those w anting to relax in the sun, play some sport or simply have a nice dive into the lake. There's a playground for children in each one.
It is dangerous to walk on the main road, particularly for families with children! We strongly recommend you follow the walking path through the village of Mezzolago.

Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
