Turn-by-turn directions

From the roundabout of Villamontagna go downhill along the tarmac road that crosses through the small inhabited area and continues towards Tavernaro. It is possible to walk below the village and enjoy the beautiful view of Monte Bondone standing high above the Trento basin.

After having gone downhill for about 600 m you will reach a crossroads in the road (SAT sign), go to the right slightly uphill on the tarmac road. Follow this road through the countryside. The view of Trento and of Monte Bondone is magnificent.

Continuing in this direction you will reach Pez (557 m). Proceed on trail No. 402 in the direction of Calisio passing through Vason.

The trail starts to climb sharply. On this climb you will go through “Strada de Mez” at an altitude of 750 m. Briefly follow the path to the left and then turn right following the signs for trail No. 402. At an altitude of 860 m you will reach Stoi.

Cross the road and then go up along trail No. 402. This trail becomes steeper and more challenging as it winds up into the forest. Follow it up to the peak at an altitude of 1096 m. The panorama over the Valle dell’Adige is just wonderful.

For the return trek follow trail No. 403A that crosses over the mule track on the southern side. Following the signs for trail No. 403A, you will reach Rifugio Campel at an altitude of 733 m. This is a natural rest stop for this excursion. From the mountain hut go down following the signs for trail No. 421 (a tarmac   path) to return quickly to the starting point.

Getting there

Start on the national road Trento SS47 in the direction of Padova. At the first exit turn right in the direction of Cognola/Povo/Martignano. Follow the signs for Cognola. Go uphill through the town and then proceed towards Villamontagna which you will reach at an altitude of 570 m. Some parking spaces are available at the roundabout.
