Biacesa – sports field (470 m)

Turn-by-turn directions

From the car park make your way back, on foot, to the SAT signs indicating trail No. 417.

Turn right at the group of houses.

At the next crossroads, turn right again and take the uphill lane leading out of the village, and then, at the following crossroads on the edge of the village, continue uphill keeping on the left.

After about 300 m you come to the crossroads with trail No. 470, which is called the Senter del Bech. From here continue straight ahead.

Shortly after the crossroads you will inevitably slow down to admire a house, on the left-hand side, and especially the profusion of objects in the garden.

Continue uphill on the country lane that runs through the fields.

At the first right bend, keep to the right, ignoring the trail heading straight uphill (SAT sign).

The ascending lane becomes increasingly narrow and steep along the wooded slope.

You pass by another two crossroads, uphill, but always keep to the right.

After a while you come out into an open field near the little church of San Giovanni, at 858 m, from where you can look down to the village of Biacesa.

To reach the Arcioni bivouac, head along the flat trail to the left of the church, which takes you up the few hundred metres in elevation separating the two buildings.

Trace your steps back to the car park.

Getting there

Reach the village of Biacesa , in Val di Ledro. At the only traffic lights, turn left (coming uphill from Riva del Garda) and cross the village. Turn right at the second turning and drive towards the sports field, where there’s a large car park.
Arrival by train, car, foot or bike
