Starting from the cable car top station you bear north on trail 651, first lightly climbing then descending toward restaurant “La Capannina”. From here a flat stretch starts with a 360 degree panorama over the Brescianian, Trentino and Venecian prealps. At the end of this stretch you find on your right trail n. 19, descending to a small alp pool close to the white road near the casern Tratto Spino. From here you climb back to the cable car top station.
Starting from the cable car top station you bear south on trail n. 651, first lightly descending to the lift Pozza della Stella and then climbing up to the chairlift “Prà Alpesina”. Continue behind the plant for a short stretch, then turn left on trail n. 17 which guides you to the alp pool Pozza della Stella, a little reservoir for cattle. Follow the left-hand trail n. 18 up to the cable car station.
Take trail n.18 in front of the cable car top station exit, guiding you in the direction of Pozza della Stella, a small alp pool. Continue to descend on trail n. 18, passing under the chairlift ropes and reach a paved road. Only a few steps away on the right hand you find the alpine hut Rifugio Prà Alpesina. Continue on the paved road northwards till Malga Tratto Spino, then continue left-hand on trail n.14 that climbs and takes you to the cable car top station.
Starting from the cable car top station take right-hand the white road in direction Bocca Navene. Nearby the caserm Tratto Spino turn right on the climbing trail n. 14 till the intersection with a paved road. After a few steps you reach trail n. 80 nearby the Alpine hut Trattospino di Sotto. Bear left and continue northward encountering the alpine hut Malga Zocchi di Sotto. Continue on trail n. 653 till reaching a paved road and the restaurant Bocca di Navene with a wonderful panorama terrace. Continue for some hundred meters southward on the paved road till encountering right-hand a road that brings you back to the top station.
This trail is only downhill and challenging. You should be well trained and have supplies of water.
Starting from the cable car top station you bear north on trail 651 for a short distance till encountering trail n. 16 that guides you right through the middle of a giant meadow with a wonderful lake view. 1 hour later you encounter trail n. 3, leading you to the mountain road downhill. 20 minutes later you reach the alpine hut Prai with its typical products; we recommend a short break sitting on the Bank of Co’ da Crat before the trail takes you further downhill into the forest passing under the cable car ropes. Staying on your right at the village Signor you continue on the road until you arrive at San Michele. Here you find the cable car middle station that brings you back to Malcesine.
Bear south from the cable car top station to trail n. 2, which takes you into the forest. Follow the trail till encountering right-hand trail n. 12. It is not too demanding and completely in the forest; shortly after passing under the cable car ropes you cross trail n. 11; if you want to have a break now or taste some specialties, make a little left-hand detour to the Rifugio Prai(reopened in 2014). If you continue right-hand instead, you return to the cable car top station.
This trail is only downhill and quite challenging. You should be well trained and have supplies of water. Bear south from the cable car top station to trail n. 2. Near the ski-lift Pozza della Stella keep to the right and start to descend, first through meadows then through the forest. The descent with some very steep stretches meanders until a bifurcation with the sign “Piombi”. Here you must turn right. We recommend a break at Piombi village, a veritable natural balcony from where you can admire the Lake in all its length. To continue you only have to follow the trail to San Michele village downhill for an hour approximately.
This only downhill stretch is less challenging but still offering a beautiful view. A small path starts at the north side of the cable car top station. Follow this path until you cross a paved road and continue on a small and steep path that takes you into the forest. At the first crossing turn left and continue following the path until you come to another paved road. Turn left and continue for some ten meters until encountering a sign “Malcesine a piedi” (footpath to Malcesine). Descend for some hundred meters up to the “Capitello di Pajer”. Shortly before the capitello you may make a little detour to the site of Madonna dell’Accoglienza with a picturesque view over Malcesine. Otherwise walk straight ahead for half an hour directly to Malcesine.
