Turn-by-turn directions

Behind the “Rifugio Al Faggio”, you take the forest road marked 414. The road soon turns into a narrower path. At an altitude of 1030 m, you pass the “Assat” stream, over the “Ponte della Glera” bridge, and continue along trail 414. The slope becomes steeper, and you quickly gain elevation, reaching 1445 m asl at “Malga Guil”. The woods become more sparse, allowing you to enjoy the beautiful views that open out over the valley. You reach the fork “Sella de Lomar” at 1600 m asl, where you turn right, continuing to follow the directions for trail 414, in the “Bocca dell’Ussol” direction. You now walk on open terrain with beautiful views of the Ledro peaks. In this way, you arrive at the “Bocca dell’Ussol”. Climbing up to the left, you can reach the nearby “Cima dell’Ussol” peak, where you can find the ruins of WWI military structures, and a small but picturesque chapel. On the other hand, if you continue for another 15 minutes on the trail to the right (trail 455), you can reach the peak called “Cima Gavardina”. There you will find a grand view over the surrounding peaks.

To return, you follow the same route backwards.

Getting there

SS240 della Val di Ledro to Bezzecca, where you turn towards Val di Concei. You go past the hamlets of Locca, Enguiso, and Lenzumo, and you keep going straight until the end of the road at the Rifugio Al Faggio, where you will find parking.
