Hike from the Passo di Tremalzo to Prà della Rosa

The adventurous Tremalzo Road snakes its way around the Garda Mountains, leading from one mountain pass to the next. The route follows the central and most beautiful part of this former military road.

We reach the starting point of our hike, the parking space at the Passo di Tremalzo, by car from the Valle di Ledro valley. The path no. 224 coincides with a section of the old Tremalzo Road, nowadays a gravel path. First we follow the trail beneath the rock faces of the Monte Tremalzo uphill to the tunnel at 1,855 m asl. Walking through it we reach the southern slope of the Corno della Marogna in the Parco Alto Garda bresciano Nature Reserve.

Afterwards the trail leads us through a landscape of rocks and forests in serpentines downhill to the Passo Prà della Rosa, our destination. The clearing is a wonderful place for a break. If you want to extend this hike, you can descend on the path no. 457 to the Passo di Nota at 1,200 m asl where the Rif. degli Alpini mountain hut, a well-known rest point, is located.

This 3 km longer alternative route overcomes additional 250 metres of altitude difference (each direction). So the already demanding way back uphill will be even more exhausting - therefore it is recommended only for hikers with stamina and on days with mild temperatures. The route offers a beautiful view in various directions including the Adamello Group in the north-west and Lake Garda in the south-east, stretching to the horizon.
