Monte Misone is a solitary peak on the north-west end of Lake Garda. Perhaps it is less well-known than the other mountains around the lake but the panorama from its summit is a memory you will treasure forever.

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.

Author’s recommendation

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 traditional local dishes. Don't miss this chance to refuel after your hike with some delicious food.
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.

Safety information

Along the hike there is nowhere to stop off for refreshments so be sure to take everything you need.
The hut on the pasture Malga di Tenno is normally open from June to September and can serve as emergency shelter.

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.

Equipment

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):

  • water canteen (1L)
  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
  • First aid kit
  • windproof jacket
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • whistle to attract attention in an emergency
  • 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.

And finally...
... 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.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the car park in Calino follow the forestry road. After a short stretch take the trail on your left SAT 412. The uphill climb is fairly steep as far as Sella di Castiol (1350 m) where it levels out a bit. From the pasture Malga di Tenno continue in the direction of the Caminacol peak (1803 m). Go back the way you came.

Getting there

From the lower Sarca Valley follow directions for Tenno (strada statale 421). When you come out on the other side of the town you come to the hamlet Ville del Monte and turn right at the junction after the church. Go straight on past Canale and Calvola, head up the mountainside and follow directions for the mountain hut Rifugio San Pietro and the car park.
