Trekking Radic de l'Ors in the Ledro Valley north-west of Lake Garda

Description

This hike offers spectacular views of the Ledro Alps and takes place in a mountain area of outstanding natural interest, which in late spring is covered with a spontaneous herb, the alpine cycerbita, known in dialect as 'radic de l'ors' (bear's radicchio).

It is said that it was Italian soldiers, on the line of the Garda front that crossed precisely those places (numerous testimonies can still be seen today), who sowed that unique 'vegetable', today sought after and appreciated by gourmets.

We will reach the Ledro Valley and the side valley of Concei with a private transfer departing from Riva del Garda. Along a mountain road we will climb up to the car park of Malga Trat (1,470 m). From there, a path will take us to Bocca di Saval (1,740 m) and then to a wide meadow basin from where, across the pastures, we begin the ascent to Cima Parì (1,991 m), a panoramic point from which we will enjoy a wide view of the entire chain of the Ledro Alps.

We descend from the summit along the opposite slope: a path will take us to the Rifugio Nino Pernici (1,600 m) in an hour's walk. After a well-deserved rest-break, we will return in less than half an hour to the Malga Trat car park along a forest road.
