Start point: Mezzocorona (TN)
Mezzocorona, 219 m - Monte di Mezzocorona (intersection 506), 891 m
From the centre of Mezzocorona (219 m) walk up to the bottom station of the Monte di Mezzocorona cable car, after which you’ll see the SAT signposts (SAT footpath 500, signposted Monte). The route follows a steep road to the Grotta della Madonna. Where the road levels out near a fountain, take the path that now winds up through the woods and, having passed a band of rock (Clape de l'asen, splendid views), comes close to the rock face and continues alongside it until the Capitello di San Antonio shrine. You are now about halfway. The path overlooks the deep Val di Piaget in places and goes up around various outcrops to reach the summit pulpit with its large cross and magnificent views. From here it’s just a few minutes to Monte (intersection 506, 891 m, 1 ¾ hrs; cafés and restaurants), where you can either set out on another walk or return to the starting point by cable car or by the same path (1 hr 10 min).
Getting thereFrom the San Michele all'Adige-Mezzocorona exit from the A22 motorway follow the signs for Mezzocorona. Go past the Vender Legnami timber yard and take the first exit from the roundabout (signposted Mezzocorona) and go along Via Rotaliana. Go straight on at the next roundabout, go over the level crossing and continue to Piazza San Gottardo. Then take Via Dante and when you get to Piazza della Chiesa go up Via alla Grotta, following signs for the Funivia Monte di Mezzocorona (cable car). Park in the designated spaces near the lower station.
ParkingIn the designated spaces in Via alla Grotta near the lower station of the Monte di Mezzocorona cable car or alternatively near the Mezzocorona Borgata station of the Ferrovia Trento-Malè railway.
