Garda Trek - Top Loop 1: from Riva del Garda along the ridges to Rifugio Pernici
Nearly 1600 metres of elevation gain from the shores of Lake Garda to the peaks between Garda Trentino and Valle di Ledro
The first stage of Garda Treks takes you from the Mediterranean ambience of the centre of Riva del Garda to the alpine environment of the ridges which lead you one step after another to the mountain hut Rifugio Pernici. This trail starts out with a very tough stretch, gaining altitude fast as you head up the steep slopes of Monte Rocchetta. But it's well worth the effort as you enjoy the fabulous views on both sides.
