The Old Pinza Road
Itinerary that follows the signed path 402 from Bocca di Trat, at the border with Valle di Ledro, to Riva del Garda along one of the historic roads of Garda Trentino
If you want to get back to where you started from, after the first stage of Garda Trek, this route, all downhill, is the quickest way back to Riva del Garda, passing through the town of Campi and then through the woods. You can also do this trek uphill.
Once you get to Parisi, a detour along the Garda Trek Medium Loop will take you to the San Martino archaeological site. A path through the woods, where you will come across strange figures sculpted in wood, takes you to the higher area of the site. Here excavations uncovered a place of worship dating back to Pre-Roman times, which was converted into a Roman sanctuary, with the addition of a monumental staircase which can still be used today. This building, perched at the edge of the cliff, offers a breathtaking view over the towns beneath. Another few minutes and you come to the ruins of a village abandoned due to fire in the 8th century A.D.
To return to Riva, follow directions for the Garda Trek Medium Loop as far as the town of Campi. Cross the road and rejoin the trail SAT 4012 in the lower part of the town.
