In the hamlet Castello di Puegnago del Garda (215 m asl), near the town hall is the bell tower, surrounded by the castle, and on the other side of the street the parish church together with the square they represent the heart of the village and one of the most panoramic points of the Valtenesi, combining both the hills and the lake in one stunning vista. From here you go along a stretch of the provincial road downhill until the village Palude. Following via Valle and then via Pauletta, next to vineyards and olive groves, proceeding straight first on via Borgo Alto and then via Monte Tondo. If you want to treat yourself to a local diversion, the Sovenigo Lakes are well worth a visit: three stretches of water hidden in the woods that create a beautiful spectacle between July and August, when they flush pink with waterlilies. After the asphalt, at the junction turn left again along via Monte Tondo coming on the paved cycle path Salò - Lonato del Garda after about a kilometer. It will follow the cycle path in direction of Lonato del Garda for a kilometer and a half, there is a stretch where you can admire the lakes, even with small deviations of paths and side roads. Once at the turning on via Semonte, instead of following the directions for the cycle path towards Lonato del Garda, continue on the via dei Laghi for another 200 m. Here you turn left onto via Pauletta, which in a few minutes leads to the hamlet Palude and allows you to return to the starting point, taking the stretch back to Castello made earlier. Puegnago del Garda is associated with the agricultural activity that has characterised this land for centuries and still continues today with several companies producing olive oil, in particular the Casaliva variety, and wineries that produce various wines, including those from the well-known indigenous Groppello grape variety.
