  • I recommend everyone the Ponale trail not tiring on the Ridge West of Lake Garda, breathtaking landscapes and at the top of the ponale is a bar where you can stop and look at the view

  • Spring is the perfect time to do this walk: there are several sections with plenty of Sun and too hot, it would be too difficult. In addition to shore to pregasina is virtually all uphill and then a warm temperature is required. Otherwise the view is priceless!

  • I walk often this old road connecting Riva e Ledro, wanted by ledrense Giacomo Cis in the late 800 to end the total isolation of Val di Ledro Lake Garda: 33 total km of road carved into the rock of which the first three galleries in monte Oro, a daring feat of engineering! Following the construction of the new highway, the current connection to the Valley, and after nearly a century of loyal service the Ponale (named after the river that starts from the Ledro Valley and empties into the Garda generating the famous waterfall visible at the Belvedere) is abandoned to its sad fate until 2004, when it opened to the public as being realised. The most known and frequented stretch are just the first 5 km which connect Riva del Garda at the Belvedere, a former convenience store and access to waterfall Ponale ravine. For the more energetic the road continues between switchbacks and trails until Molina di Ledro or by holding the left shortly after the Belvedere in just 2.5 km of quiet asphalt road linking to Pregasina (550 meters above sea level) where you can enjoy a fantastic view of the almost total del Benaco. Each meter of Ponale can offer exciting and unique views of the Lake. The road is never too difficult, so it is suitable for everyone, but during the late spring/summer and we must pay attention to the great influx of increased traffic, often poorly educated despite numerous warning signs. Personally I prefer the winter, the better to enjoy total peace and tranquility. Sunny in the morning, totally in shadow in the afternoon, take this into account for your excursions depending on the season. Good luck!
