GardaTrek - Medium Loop 3: from Ceniga to Bolognano
Between the Sarca Valley and the slopes of Monte Stivo, this stage of GardaTrek Medium Loop crosses some of the lesser known but equally charming areas of Garda Trentino
Ceniga and Bolognano are only a few kilometres apart as the crow flies: the Medium Loop trail takes you on a detour to discover the most interesting features of this area, especially on the slopes of Monte Stivo.
Before you head up towards Drena and the Castle which overlooks the rocky wasteland of the Marocche, the trail passes near the ravine of the Rio Sallagoni river where there is one of the most spectacular via ferratas in all of Garda Trentino.
Shortly before Braila, the trail passes through the Open Air Gallery, an art project which turns the woods into an open air exhibition. Here you will see many installations made with all sorts of recycled materials bringing to life a wonderful world of colour.
From Troiana, a path leads across the mountainside and as far as the ridge running down from the summit of Monte Stivo, where you have wonderful views of the towns of Massone and Bolognano and over the plain as far as Torbole and Lake Garda.
