nį8> San Giovanni al monte
The path begins with a steep climb from above the town of Varignano to the delightful valley of Padaro, where a brief stretch of flat road is followed by another slight, but constant climb. Carry on as far as Mandrea where on the right there is a splendid view of the Valle dei Laghi. After the first country dwellings of San Giovanni, go past the pretty little church until you see the refuge-restaurant below. Going up towards ďPrai da Gom-GorghiĒ, the road becomes a dirt track and after turning left at Marcarže, passes below the slopes of Monte Biažla, which is flanked by vast forests and a green valley. From Gorghi, turn right through a dense wood and then turn left along a forest path which ends up on a paved road leading to Bondiga.
Carry on towards San Pietro, pass through Treni, and keeping left, go up again through the meadows and rustic dwellings as far as the road on the left which will take you to the villages of Calvola and Canale. Further down, on the left is a turning onto the S.S. 421 for Tenno. At the hairpin bend at the Volta di NÚ, take the path through the olive groves to Varignano.
