We took a morning hike from Garda, following the road near Bikapi hostel and then winding up zigzag steps under the shade of trees. The steps are steep and hard work, but you soon arrive at a forest junction with a couple of picnic benches....More

Walked up La Rocca from Garda on a couple of occasions. Started off from the road by the church and just followed the signs. There is a path all the way and it's much easier than you might expect. Near the top you can turn...More

We got a map from the tourist office in Garda but it was not very detailed and we found some signs hard to find and only got to the top when we met a group of Italian walkers and we didn't find the church. The tourist office... More
