This trail is highly recommended for all history fans: a visit to the system of tunnels in Cima Rocca together with breathtaking views of Lake Garda
The Great War left indelible traces all over Garda Trentino and here they are clearly visible and tangible. In this area you can see the vast forces brought into play by the Austro-Hungarian army in order to protect this crucial border, constructing defences which from our modern perspective are hard to believe were possible
There is a complex and articulated system of tunnels in Cima Rocca. The many branches, closed off to the public for safety reasons are proof of the intentions of the Austro-Hungarian army to further expand the fortifications and unite the lower and upper parts of the tunnel system
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.
This trail involves stretches classified EEA which means you must come equipped with via ferrata kit and a torch.
This trail not only requires adequate equipment but also technical know-how and a considerable level of fitness.
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.
