GardaTrek - Top Loop 3: a long descent to the River Sarca
From San Pietro hut (1000 m above sea level) to the valley bottom again. Another stage characterized by a great variety of lanscapes as you descend to the Sarca river shores.
<p>After climbing Monte Biaina, between Valle Lomasona Valle del Sarca, this trail takes us back down to the valley again, a gradual descent to the River Sarca at the picturesque Roman bridge of Ceniga.</p>
<p>This is a moderately difficult hike and gives you a chance to catch your breath and enjoy the landscape of Garda Trentino after the first 2 more challenging stages. While you walk in the wood you can clearly see the landscape around you change as you proceed: leaving firs and beech trees, you will meet olive trees and orchards as you approach the end of the stage. </p>
<p>The only uphill stretch of this stage will take you to the top of <strong>Monte Biaina</strong>, with its peak cross: a great lookout point above northern lake Garda. The trail then leads to <strong>San Giovanni al Monte</strong>: this is where the people of Arco traditionally had their mountain cottages among the woods and meadows. </p>
