The Monte Carone (1621 m) is a mountain with two faces. From the Lake Ledro you can see a wide, forested back and from the Val Signol you can only see the rugged rocky slopes. Therefore, the approaches are very different. The one to the north from the Val di Ledro is very shaded and well suited for hot summer days but it lacks the view for the Lake Garda. The one to the south – therefore always sunny – is very tedious. The most beautiful path starts at Pregàsina, being very long but also very variety-rich. A hike through valleys, heights and views offers a great finale on the rocks of the Carona south-flank.

The long tour starts very easily on a small road that leads past the church of Pregàsina and to the south into the valley of Palaèr. Very soon you can have a view of the Lake Garda and you continue in the shadows, always walking uphill. Near the Punta dei Larici (907 m) the path brings you close to the edge of the terrain again. If you go to the very edge you can enjoy the view onto the lake. At the Malga Palaèr (946 m) you leave the road to the left and over the well indicated path you rise through the forest until you reach a notch in the ridge, having its name from a very notable rocky needle: Passo Rocchetta (1159 m). To the left you can see the path to the Cima Mughera (1161 m); the forested south-flank of the Monte Guil continues uphill and eventually the path loses a little height, descending to the meadows of the Passo Guil (1209 m). Little below you will meet an ex war road, crossing the entire south flank of the Monte Carone easily. You follow it, pass the Baita Segala (1250
