Hike from Sega di Ala to the Cima Borghetto Peak

A nice and easy circular walk in spring, at the edge of the alpine meadows in the Lessini Mountains

The hamlet of “Sega di Ala” is located above the small village of Ala in the Lessini Mountains, beneath the Fittanze mountain pass at the southern border of the Trentino. From Ala an alpine road proceeds up, parking is possible at the taverns “Ristorante Monti Lessini” and “Albergo Alpino – Vecchio Confine”. From here we follow the path to the Campeggio al Faggio campsite, which proceeds through a green landscape with meadows and where now in May myriads of cowslips bloom. Past the campsite, the path proceeds further towards the forest. We follow the path “Denti della Sega” towards north where we find a military viewpoint from World War I (Busoni di Borghetto) and enjoy a view on the Vallagarina valley.

We continue our walk towards south, along the Denti della Sega Path which proceeds along the mountain crest and offers gorgeous views across the alpine meadows of the Lessini Mountains on the left and on the Valle dell’Adige valley and Monte Baldo on the right. Further south a large blue area is visible, it is Lake Garda. After a section through the forest, we come back to our starting point along a path through the meadows again. This easy walking tour – only about 200 metres in altitude along the 9 km long route – is really nice in May, when the landscape is already green and blossoming in this region.
