Great and rewarding circular tour that is very simple to walk. The climb is steep and exhausting, with great differences in altitude and impressive insights onto the village Riva and the Lake Garda. The hut Capanna Santa Barbara is found in a beautiful location, the close via ferrata Via dell’Amicizia and therefore also the Cima S.A.T., offering very beautiful views of the panorama, are famous targets for various hikes. As a varying descent you can also take the Sentiero dei Crazidèi.
Crossing the western Gardesana, you start to follow the path n. 404. Via a divine street made of marble and cobblestone that reaches over 20 hairpin curves and across cypresses, a pine forest and along some very comfortable benches, you will eventually reach the fort Fortezza del Bastione (210 m). Once there, you start to follow a stony path through the forest of cedar pines until you reach a rampart of stone and the hut Capanna Santa Barbara (560 m), a very neat, small hut in a very beautiful location. Continuing for five minutes via south, you will reach the St. Barbara church (625 m) and you will find yourself in a cauldron-like terrain. The only possibility to surmount the apparent walls is a ladder with 56 rungs and bails of iron, attached to the stones. After this part, you will descend slightly and keep yourself on the right. Via some hairpin curves you climb higher until you reach the area Vallone dei Concoli (1100 m). Again, you keep right and via the path 413 you walk along
