My teenage son and I started at 830 am from the west side of the mountain at
appx 400 m height at San Maggiore.
We started walking in direction south on the gravel road, and soon we went onto a steep 30 mins walk
at a concrete mountain road. We arrived at a large green field, went to the left, and entered trail 7 which initially was an easy walk
through the forrest, but after 30 mins it changed to steep 'climbs' upto trail 5. Also trail 5
was in the beginning a quite easy walk through the woods, but then for major part, it was a rough
and steep trail with wonderfull views down at lake garda and up to top of the
mountain ridge. Just before Cima Valdritta summit there is a large valley,
partly covered with snow, and with impressive views. We summited at 230 pm (2218m) in
clear weather with beautiful views 360 degrees round. We stayed at the cross
at the summit for 30 minutes or so, whereafter we checked out the caves from
WW1 just below the summit. Then we went down to San Maggiore via same trails as
we climbed up, arriving at our car at appx 8pm. Our feet were quite sore, but the trip was a great experience . For some parts this hike is quite demanding, but if you are in general good shape, bring a lot of water with you, and includes a good number of breaks, this great hike can be done in a day.
