Hike via Pregasina to the Cima Nodice Peak

The circular walk with view on Lake Garda is especially recommended in spring and autumn

Starting point of our walking tour is the parking space at the road from Riva del Garda into the Val di Ledro valley which is located straight after the double tunnel at the junction to Pegasina. From here we walk along the asphalted road to Pregasina, after a few hundred metres a path (Sentiero del Ponale) branches to the left. This we follow for a while down the valley, after stairs we follow the junction to Pregasina. It is a former access road which is reserved for hikers and bikers now and offers a fantastic view on the northern part of Lake Garda. After a few serpentines we reach the hamlet of Pregasina.

After our lunch break we follow the path uphill, it proceeds past the little San Giorgio Church to the forest. The marker no. 422 leads us to the forest path, which proceeds up and up to the “Scala Santa” and to the rocks of the 859 m high Nodice mountain. The exposed spots just before we reach our destination are secured with steel ropes. Again and again we pass trenches and caves which date back to World War I, when the Italian-Austrian border was located here. The signpost “Biacesa” leads us downhill through the forest, we have to pay attention to some steep and slippery spots. Finally the path ends in close vicinity to our starting point at the parking space.
