From località Brenta an unpaved road on the right is taken, which gradually climbs up along the hill; passing through vineyard-cultivated terracings, the wood on the eastern part of the hill is reached. Following the road, the medieval San Valentino's church is found. At some stages, you can admire the wonderful view over the two lakes. Then it is necessary to walk on towards Tenna and the fort,  which has been recently renovated, is reached. Afterwards, the centre of the village is reached and Via Lago should be followed.
