The ascent from the woods of Concei to the top of Monte Cadria is among the most demanding that Valle di Ledro has to offer, but also one of the most rewarding.
Distance 11.4 km
Highest point2,194 m
Lowest point978 m
As one gets closer to the summit, the thick vegetation gives way to bushes, meadows and eventually edelweiss, the queen of alpine flora. On the roof of Valle di Ledro there is nothing to hinder the view, which is free to sweep in all directions, towards Lake Ledro, the mountains of Val Concei and Valle del Chiese. During the Summer cows graze the Alpine meadows of Cadria. Among the first sounds which strike the ear from Spring to Autumn is the whistle of the marmots moving among the rocks.
The signs of the Great War are still well visible around Monte Cadria. The life of soldiers at the front and horrours of the Great War are narrated in the diary of Lieutenant Felix Hecht, to whom the cross in the valley of Cadria is dedicated.
The last stretch, rather narrow and exposed, is best suited for experienced hikers.

For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. 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.
