Nestled in the heart of the Alto Garda Bresciano Park, Tignale’s meadows, fields and orchards spread across a plateau, bordered by the woodland’s edge on one side and the shores of the lake on the other. This is the ideal location for walking: set out to discover its charming villages, admiring breath-taking views along the way. In the centre of the village of Gardola, the main village of the council of Tignale, you can park the car in Piazzale Arcobaleno. Cycle towards the village of Olzano. After you passed through this small village, continue to ride on the road that leads into the forest until you reach the Alpine hut at Cima Piemp (7 Km, 1160 m asl), a great place to take a break and enjoy the breathtaking panorama, sweeping from Lake Garda and Monte Baldo towards the mountains of Valvestino and Trentino: incredible in every season. After the Cima Piemp hut the road carries on and becomes a dirt track that runs along Cima di Traval and Cima delle Carbonere: this stretch is characterized by a long downhill. Straight after this another climb is required in order to reach Passo d’Ere (11,7 km, 1131 m asl). At this point, carry on riding along the main track following the trail sign no. 253 for 7 Km. The following locations will be touched along the route: Bocca Paolone (947 m) and Passo Fobia (907 m asl). Stay on the path no. 253 and you’ll reach the location of Vione (694 m); here at the junction, keep left and take the path no. 251 towards the village of Aer. Following this track for about 2,4 Km you will reach the village of Aer. From here, after 1 Km, you will be back in Piazzale Arcobaleno, the starting point of the tour.
