Distance 7.6 km
Climbing onto the Monte Baldo starting from Nago you will have the possibility to come from palm-trees to the edelweiss, thanks to the extraordinary climate of the Lake Garda. This is one of the most beautiful aspects of this hike but there are also the views onto the surrounding landscapes: one side shows the Lake Garda and the other one the valley of the River Adige. This tour has, without doubt, the maximum in terms of excitement. It is recommended to avoid the hottest hours around lunchtime. In the itinerary you will find a more simple way to reach the peak.
The start is located on 1,450 m at a barrier, blocking the entrance into the road that leads from Nago onto the Monte Baldo, named “Strada dei Prati di Nago” (“Road of the meadows of Nago”). The place is very calm, strewn with olive trees and small cottages for the inhabitants of the location near the Lake Garda. After hiking for approx. 45 min you will reach the entrance into the Val del Parol where the path n. 601 starts, leading along the mountains Varagna. Before you turn left to follow the path you can enjoy the view onto the Lake Garda: this is one of the places where it really pays off to halt for a minute and enjoy the slight breeze of the lake. You will come onto a steep path and following this path you will reach a plain after 1 hour that marks the ending of the pan of the Val Parol. One ascending part remains and after the last 45 min you will reach the summit on 2,079 m. This path is very rocky and fragile and only near the summit it gets firmer. Directly below the summit
