Sentiero delle Glare
Hiking trail • Val di Non
A pinch of American charm can be found in this route that runs practically downhill between the car park of Lake Tovel and the "Al Capriolo" site. The trail shows an initial stretch through woods of fir and pine trees and then comes out into the open on the Glare stony ground, created by a large landslide that broke away from the walls above, finally ending beside a stream that placidly descends into the valley. If you drive up, you are bound to pass through the Glare area but you will not be able to fully appreciate the uniqueness of this part of the valley: a nice walk is much better.
A route suitable for everyone, but attention must be paid during the hottest hours of summer days because in the Dosso delle Glare section the sun is very strong and there is no water.
The trail was traced on the left part of the large detrital deposit in a place devoid of vegetation.
In its central section the route passes close to the road, which is therefore within easy reach in case of need.

Getting thereReach the hamlet of Tuenno in Val di Non, on the right side (looking downstream) of the valley. In the SW area of the village there are signs to Lake Tovel. Here begins the road that climbs for 11 km up the Val di Tovel. Access to the valley is free during the low season. From late June until the end of August traffic management is entrusted to the Adamello – Brenta Park Authority. In this period you will find in the Capriolo area (about halfway through the valley) traffic barriers that obey the following rules: 1) before 9.00 am and after 6.00 pm there is free access to the lake car park 2). From 9.00 am to 10.30 am you pay to park and you can drive up to the lake 3). From 10.30 am to 6.00 pm you cannot drive to the lake and you must leave the car on the open Capriolo spaces to take advantage of the shuttle bus service. Walking to the lake from the Capriolo area is not recommended given the length of the walk (5 km /3.2 mi).
