The Peace Path near Brentonico

The Peace Trail follows the frontline of the First World War: one of its most beautiful stages is located in the municipality of Brentonico, around the Polsa Mountains in the Monte Baldo Group.

From the Camping Polsa we start towards the Malga Le Susine hut and then on to Bocca d'Ardole. Here we meet the Peace Trail. We follow the Montagnola ridge towards the Monte Vignola, an 800 m high mountain range. Finally we turn off to the Alpini Cross, built on a hill in memory of the fallen soldiers. Below us there is the Vallagarina valley with the village of Sabbionara di Avio.

Back on the Peace Path, we continue our hike towards Monte Vignola (monte = mountain). A short ascent leads us to the summit, from where the large water reservoirs built by the Austro-Hungarian soldiers and the ruins of the anti-aircraft battery positions are still clearly visible. The panoramic view on the surrounding countryside with its meadows and autumnal colourful beech forests is magnificent. Descending via the Malga Vignola mountain hut our circular walking tour takes us back to the starting point at the Polsa Camping.
