A new trail, inaugurated in May 2017, which climbs the slopes of Rocchetta and Monte Tombio, connecting Riva del Garda to the archaeological site of San Martino.
The trail heads up the valley of the Gamella stream, a little known but spectacular area of Garda Trentino, rich in waterfalls.
It has sections fitted with metal cables and steps; this is the reason why it is graded EE and should only be used by experienced hikers.
Before going back to Riva, you can head on as far as Malga Grassi and stop off at Capanna Grassi, well known for the tasty local food.
The trail ends at the archeological site San Martino, one of the most important of Garda Trentino.
The information on this chart is subject to inevitable variations, so this means that none of the indications are absolute. It is not entirely possible to avoid giving inexact or imprecise information, given how quickly environmental and weather conditions can change. For this reason we decline any responsibility for changes which the user may encounter. In any case, the hiker is advised to check the conditions of the places, environment and weather before setting out.
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):
Emergency telephone number: 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.
... 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.
