The climb up to Monte Casale is one of the classical itineraries of the area. It is the ideal walk to be taken at least once a year, best in the sharp Spring or Autumn days when the strong and lively colours exalt the surrounding scenery. The panoramic views are breathtaking, ranging from Lake Garda to the calcareous rock of the majestic Brenta Group to the perpetual snow of Carè Alto. The Valle del Sarca that stretches out 1400 metres below can be seen in its entirety from the peak. The view out onto Lake Toblino is lovely. It’s an easy route without any specific difficulties, suitable for families due to the small difference in height.

In order to climb up to the car park at Le Quadre you must purchase the daily permit at the Albergo Panorama. The cost of the permit is per vehicle and is valid for the whole day. The money collected for the permits is used to upkeep the road.

 

From the car park, climb along the dirt road, pass the sign that indicates the Le Quadre locality (1479 m) and keep going straight until you reach the summit meadows of Monte Casale.

Turn right at the crossroads on the dirt road, following the sign for Rifugio Don Zio.

The road rises steeply and with a panoramic view climbs among the meadows to the west of Monte Casale.

Along the panoramic trail you will finally reach Rifugio Don Zio that is visible for most of the upper portion of the road.

Once at the mountain hut, open on weekends, walk to the right of it and go beyond the small copse of trees near the mountain hut.

After passing the trees you will see, on the right, the antenna of a signal repeater close to the peak.

Cross the meadow and approach the summit (1631 m), from which you will enjoy a panoramic view of Valle del Sarca.

To the right of the antenna there is a lookout point from which to view the area’s most famous peaks.

You can then descend to the cross standing further south and then return to the mountain hut.

From the mountain hut, return to the departure point by retracing your steps.

Getting there

From Ponte Arche drive up to the town of Comano (road signs for Comano, Godenzo, Poia), passing through Poia, on provincial road SP 213.

Once in Comano, turn right immediately past the church and follow the road that on a left-hand bend leads towards the exit of the town, close to the Panorama hotel.

At a distance of 300 m there is a hairpin bend with a crucifix on the right.

This is from where the long road called “La panoramica” starts, climbing up along the sides of Monte Casale to an altitude of 915 m (antennas and no-trespassing sign, 2.80 km) and then proceeds first dirt and then cemented with porphyry in the last steep stretch, up to the car park at about 1460 m (about 7.40 km from the crucifix of the first hairpin bend).

5 stelle per il panorama dal monte casale, la vista non ha prezzo ! Io quest anno l ho fatta due volte. La prima salendo a piedi da Comano e la seconda salendo con l auto sino alle antenne per guadagnare un po di quota. Faticosa ma ne vale la pena. E' vero che facendo il permesso si può salire sino alla località' le quadre, eliminando cosi gran parte della fatica, tuttavia e' bene segnalare che il tratto antenne-le quadre è una strada forestale sterrata piuttosto stretta e con discreta pendenza.

Voi amate scherzare... Dalle Antenne, dove abbiamo parcheggiato, c'è un sentiero sempre in salita con una pendenza superiore al 20% . I dati di facilità riportati non corrispondono alla realtà. Lo consiglierei a chi non è in buona forma fisica. La nota di verità consiste in un panorama mozzafiato alla fine del percorso.

Vanaf de antennes is het 2 u 30 steeds berg op. Het laatste stuk zeer steil om te wandelen. Tot aan de betalende parking zeer smal. Er kunnen geen 2 auto's passeren. Het zicht is boven fantastisch. De inspanning loont. Je kan 5 meren zien inclusief Lago di Garda.
