GardaTrek - Top Loop 7: Back to the water
A breathtaking finale for the Top Loop of GardaTrek: take the cable car down to Monte Baldo and return by ferry to get back to where you started from.
End a day of hiking with a descent on a spectacular rotating cable car and head back to where you started from on the water, maybe on one of the historic boats which have been ferrying passengers about the lake since the turn of the 20th century. Finish the final stage of GardaTrek in style!
From the hut Damiano Chiesa a quite simple hike, almost entirely with lake view, leads to the cable car station.
Along thi stretch you can easily spot some chamois jumping on the steep rock walls or on the pastures.
Make sure to calculate the timing right so that you get to Malcesine in time to make the ferry boat to Riva del Garda. Otherwise you can take one of the many buses which pass during the day (timetables here - line Riva - Malcesine - Garda). Remember that, especially at weekends during the summertime, there can be large crowds waiting to take the cable car from Monte Baldo down to Malcesine so you may have to wait your turn.
