The summit-hike starts downhill: at the mountain station of the big ropeway of the Monte Baldo you descend into the wide depression of the Bocca Tratto Spino (Tredes Pin, 1,720 m). Then you either go slightly left, following a gravelled path, or you continue straight along a swathe and on the rocky path to the lift-station (1,836 m). Not very pleasant for the eye to start with. Behind the modern and functional building you will enter the conservation area “Lastoni Salva Pezzi” on the western flank of the mountain. The path follows the crest, passes a ground of stone-men, initially over meadows and the between the mountain pines. Again you can enjoy the deep views through the rocky high cirques, made by the ice of the glaciers and onto the Lake Garda. On the Cima delle Pozzette (2,132 m) you can enjoy your first 360°-view. Not to miss: the wind gap on the crest in the back – approximately hundred “lost” metres in height. With exciting views into the depth and the wild valley Val d’Angual you continue on the rocky ridge. The next summit on the Monte-Baldo-Crest is the Cima dei Longino (2,176 m), but the path goes around it on ups and downs and rocky parts with many roots. Behind it you will find the next wall-like canyon, the Val Finestra. The Cima Valdritta (2,218 m) is now already very close. A harmless step in the stone (chains) eases the entry in its eastern flank and after that you can continue evenly until you reach the junction for the path onto the summit. It was built in the First World War and was partly blown into the rocks. The path goes on in zig-zag and reaches the highest point of the Monte Baldo, where views of the depth and the far allow a beautiful panorama. Back on the crest-path you can now reach the big well of the Bocca di Valdritta (2,107 m). Now you can start the long descent on the western flank of the mountain. With zig-zag you continue downwards into the rock-encircled cauldron of the Val Dritta (chamois!) and a path – shortly uphill – leads to the hill of a meadow over the canyon of the valley. The place is called “La Guardiola” and offers a beautiful view of the Lake. After a long slope you cross the next ditch. Steeply downhill you will shortly arrive at another viewing point: La Guardia (1,523 m). The path then leads into the forest and the view become more and more difficult, but the shadows are pleasant. In a rocky pan you will even find fresh water (La Fontatna). At the Col di Piombi the path becomes an uneven road and over a couple of loops you will reach the middle-station of the cable car of the Monte Baldo (561 m). Here ends the long ascension through almost all of the vegetation on the big mountain.
A22 (exit Rovereto sud – Lago di Garda Nord) – Via Torbole to Malcèsine. In the village you go to the valley station of the Monte Baldo cable car (well indicated). The mountain station is on the Monte-Baldo-Crest (1,752 m).
