The trail up Monte Misone starts out with a very steep stretch but don't worry, it soon levels out and you have a marvellous view of Lake Tenno, its vivid blue standing out against the mountains below.
When you get back down, take time to stop off at Canale di Tenno, voted one of the most Beautiful Villages of Italy. The medieval historic centre has remained intact and gives the impression of a place where time stands still.
Once you have been to the summit and got back to your starting point, it only takes a few minutes to get to the mountain hut Rifugio San Pietro. Apart from its panoramic terrace, the hut also offers local dishes.

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):
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.
