The route is particularly easy. You can start from the Garnì Lago Nembia carpark or from the Naturalistic oasis of Nembia near the restaurant and follow the signs up to Doss Corno.

At this point, you can choose between two alternatives: walking the trail clockwise (Brenta Dolomites Bike) or counterclockwise (directions Walk: Around the Lake). The trail is shaded for the vast majority and the forest in some places discovered.

Once we arrive at Lake Molveno, we walk along the long lake until we enter the woods. Continuing you arrive at an intersection, turning right and passing a tried and tested dwelling, you arrive at the base of a hill that leads to the trenches of the Napoleon fort and offers a panoramic view of Lake Molveno.

After returning to the crossroads, you can take the dirt path that leads to Baita Fortini and admire another beautiful view of the lake. This is the perfect spot to enjoy a good snack while contemplating the crystal clear waters of Lake Molveno, before returning to the starting point of the itinerary.
