Lake Garda : Hiking Itineraries

Lake Garda's alpine and excursionist refuges - From Navene to Dosso Spirano
In Navene, a district of Malcesine, between the Navene pension and church is a steep narrow road covered in cement and then asphalt, passing civic numbers 4, 6, 634 and the homes of a tourist resort. Becoming a trail at one point, it proceeds and enters the "Gardesana Orientale" Natural Reserve. You must obligatorily follow the trail, which ascends along bends to the junction at 287 m, where the itineraries 4 and 634 branch off (25 min.). Head left along trail nr. 6 to Valle dell'Acqua, Val Bova (30 min.), at an altitude of 477, and to the junction with the trail nr. 6 bis, which branches off to the right.
Proceed to the forestry refuge of Dosso Spirano (1 hour). A few meters beyond the refuge is a small building used as a shelter that is always open and has wood. You return home along the same trail (1 hr. 45 min.).

Useful Advice
Mountain hiking or trekking is an adventure and an experience that brings you in contact with the mountains and nature. Since some itineraries can be difficult for an amateur or untrained excursionist or mountain climber, caution is advised.
Clothing:
Clothing must not be exaggerated and always suitable for the season, taking into account the type of excursion, altitude and weather, which can change quickly in the mountains. Bring in your backpack sunglasses, a hat, a change of clothing, waterproof jacket with hood (the change of clothing, be it heavy or light, should depend upon the season underway).
Equipment:
Besides wearing the right shoes (mountain or trekking boots), bring a water bottle or another beverage, a first aid emergency kit, maps, and a Swiss Army knife.
Safety:
Always notify someone of your excursion, and if you are not accompanied by family members or friends, speak with the staff at the reception desk in your residence or hotel, and let them know of your plans. Bringing a mobile phone with you during the excursion is very helpful and might come in handy.

These measures might seem extreme, but there are many potential dangers in the mountains, and you want to avoid them. In fact, it is better to be safe than sorry!
