Monte Baldo and the environment of Lake Garda Trentino are now famous and visited by thousands of tourists from all over the world. The reasons are that the area offers a mild, almost Mediterranean climate in all seasons of the year. Another reason is the fact that Mount Baldo offers a large number of endemic flora and fauna. Finally, not to be underestimated is the excellent range of tourist facilities and typical Italian catering. Of course, there has been a large network of trails on Mount Baldo for centuries, which allow all types of trekking practically all year round and are very popular. In less touristy areas, there are also traces of equally historic and scenic trails that are completely unknown. We have gone 'on the hunt' for these trails, cleaned and marked them, and now present them to you on these pages.
