A wonderful walk straight above the lake!
The Ponale track was excavated in the rock during the second half of 1800 to connect Riva del Garda to the Valley of Ledro. Since 2004 it has become a pedestrian and bicycle path.
Starting from the Riva centre, you can reach Pregasina, a small town under the same Mayor, or the Ledro Valley through the Ponale. The profile of the trek crosses the side of the mountain and it is clearly visible from Riva del Garda and Torbole’s beaches.
Along all the 3.1 Km trek, there is who runs, hikes, who rides bycicles and also who has a bit of adrenaline in mountain bike through bumps and slops.
With its 200 meters of altitude, in one and a half hour of hiking you can enjoy spectacular views or visit historical surveillance militar towers hided amongst the nature, all of this, completely surrounded by cliffs, history and forests.
Never forget, the pleasant company of the “ Ora” : the characteristic wind of the North of the Lake.
During the summer season, the restaurant “Al Belvedere” is open where it is the end of the first section of the trail : from there, you can choose to keep walking towards The Ledro Valley and its charming lake or to turn left to the village of Pregasina.
This track, very easy, it is suitable for any kind of nature lovers. Not to forget : running shoes, a snack and a bottle of water!
