The itinerary begins in the area of the quarter of Carmine, one of the most ancient of Salò, along via San Bartolomeo close by the headquarters of the Red Cross, with signs indicating the trekking of BVG (Bassa Via del Garda) which you will follow up to Passo La Stacca. Once through Strada Statale 45bis, continue to the next fork of the road turning left toward via del Seminario. Nearby a small parking, follow the path that enters a suggestive and thick wood of pine trees. Do not deviate from the main path and go past the alternative road to Renzano, you will see on the right la Corna (387 m asl), a cliff where you must stop by to have an amazing view of the gulf of Salò. Back on your track, exit the wood and reach the 17th century church of San Bartolomeo (465 m asl). On the main path, follow the signs to Bassa Via del Garda to Passo La Stacca (443 m asl), where you will see a hunting hut and a fork in the path: here you leave the directions to Bassa Via del Garda to follow trail no. 217B toward Bagnolo and the Church of Madonna di Bagnolo (504 m asl). Beyond the porch, turn left along path no. 216 to località Milord, full of century-old chestnut trees, on a donwhill path with an alternation of untarmacked road and asphalted road. The itinerary reaches the Church of Madonna del Rio (168 m asl), behind which you can see a cave with a high waterfall. Continuing on the untarmacked road, go past the charming borough of Renzano (176 m asl) and Strada Statale 45Bis, close by Salò. Once in Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, after having visited the historical centre of the village and its beautiful walk along the lake banks, you will reach the starting point.
