The peaks of Monte Baldo


Route description

From the top station of the Malcesine Monte Baldo cable car, start walking south and stay on path 651.

After a few metres downhill, you will start ascending the ski slope Pozza della Stella. After about 3km, you get to Pozzette Peak. From here go on at the same height until you reach the Longino Peak.

Now the path changes and you walk along the eastern slopes until you reach Valdritta peak.

Just before you get to Valdritta, there is a short piece of path furnished with hand wires.

At the foot of Valdritta, we recommend you come off CAI 651 and take the path that goes up hill on the right which will bring you to the top in 15 minutes, the highest peak of the Monte Baldo range.

From path 651, in an hour you can walk to Telegrafo.

The Telegrafo Refuge "Gaetano Barana" is just under the peak and has been run since 2013 by the people of Equipe Natura.
The Refuge is closed in the winter.
Before setting off, check if the Refuge is open by calling 349 1389629 or 045 7731797.
