The short Via Ferrata of Campione del Garda is a pleasant itinerary that from the small town on the Brescia side of Lake Garda rises for 300 meters to a lookout point on Lake Garda. Easy itinerary, suitable for first experiences and winter months.
The starting point of the itinerary is at Campione del Garda on the Brescia side of Lake Garda. Whether you come from the north or the south, you reach Campione along the state road 45bis that runs along the entire Lombard shore of the lake. The exit is located inside a tunnel and you reach the small town. It is possible to park where there is a place but generally the best solution is inside the underground car park which is immediately after the exit for those coming from the south. For those coming from the north, walk along the lake following the signs for parking.
From the parking we walk towards the lake and walk along the lakefront in a southerly direction until we reach a nautical club. We cross it and continue towards the mountain walls that overlook it following the track that starts behind a prefabricated house. The trail climbs steeply with no particular problems in the woods until you reach a metal bar (15 'from the parking lot). The via ferrata starts a few meters later.
Once the ferrata is finished, continue following the track that joins the path that goes from Campione del Garda to Monte Cas. To return to Campione we follow the track to the right that descends directly towards Campione through a short tunnel and a series of steps into the woods until we reach the village. From the lakefront back to the parking lot (1h 45 'total).
The via ferrata of Campione del Garda is an easy route, without excessive verticality and lends itself well for a half-day trip and as an approach to the vertical world. The view of the underlying Lake Garda is very beautiful, it is very well taken to be covered even in the winter months.
