It would be a rather easy via ferrata, mostly slightly downhill, always on natural ledges (terrazzini), were it not that... the ferrata cable is not there! Adrenaline and a sheer view of Lake Garda, this mountaineering trail carved into the cliffs will give you a breathtaking experience.
It is entered from the spectacular Ponale road, leaving the centre of Riva behind and proceeding in a southerly direction. Some exposed passages and tightrope traverses alternate with less demanding stretches, where attention and a steady foot is always required.
From a few hundred metres above sea level, you can admire sailboats and boats sailing on the calm waters of Lake Garda: wonderful views that will arouse strong and unforgettable emotions in you.
This is a mountaineering route suitable for those with a steady heart and who know how to keep their fear of heights under control. One proceeds with a short rope, a safe mountaineering-style progression technique, always accompanied by a mountain guide.
The most interesting section is a gentle descent and there are few stretches of real physical effort, concentrated on a ledge a few tens of centimetres wide. Finally, a steep but safe path takes you back to the starting point.
