BaitoneAlpino suggest: Croce del Colodri
The Croce del Colodri which is located on the homonymous Mount Colodri, famous for the countless climbing routes and for the ferrata that takes the same name. The cross, which overlooks the Arco valley, during the day can be glimpsed behind the castle towards the north while during the night it is illuminated. The trail starts in Laghel, a fraction of Arco. To get there, park your car in the town centre and continue on foot following the signs for Laghel. You pass through via Fossa Grande, along the old city walls to the Parco dell’Arciduca. From here, continue along via Calvario and arrive at a crossroads where there is a small parking lot. Continue along the road on the left, following the signs for the church of Santa Maria di Laghel. Along this cobbled street, there are sculptures for the Via Crucis that are well worth stopping by to admire! At the end of the street, you will find yourself in front of the small church, to the left of which the path starts. Remember to wear comfortable, non-slip trainers and watch out for the stones along the road, they are big, don't trip! Follow the path “Sat 431” towards Cima Colodri, following the white and red flags along the way so as not to lose the track. At a crossroads, keep to the right, then go down and then climb a rock. A few more steps and you will see the Croce del Colodri. Reach it paying attention to where you put your feet, the rocks are a bit slippery, but you will be rewarded by a wonderful view over the whole “della Busa” valley. Enjoy the view before returning along the same route as the outward journey! It is also possible to reach the cross via the via ferrata of the same name which starts from the Prabi area of Arco. Park at the Prabi swimming pool (follow the signs already from the center of Arco) and the departure will be on the opposite side of the road right in front of you. The via ferrata is not difficult and is exposed to the sun all day. Gear up well and always carry enough water with you! Havea nice trekking!
