Lago di Ledro - einmal drumherum!
Fahrradfuzzi and Mounty Markus went for a hike.
July 10, 2021
When we arrive at Lago di Ledro, several parking spaces are already fully occupied by the time we find a place for our car (the parking fee of € 1 / ora is common)The lido, where our circumnavigation of the lake should begin, is already more than full! (Corona is probably a fairy tale from yesteryear! 😧)First it goes on the edge of the village of Molina on a small village street that is shared by cars as well as countless cyclists and pedestrians.As hikers we were always just a disturbing obstacle! After about 1.3 km we left the originally planned hiking route around the lake, quite annoyed. We followed a nice little mountain path above the road, which unfortunately ended on a road again after 3.3 km.We tried again to find a hiking trail that should lead us further around the lake and found ourselves at “Ledro Land Art”, a former artistic project of the municipality of Ledro.In the absence of alternatives, we crossed the dry river bed of the Riu Val di Pur, followed an overgrown path, crossed fallen trees and finally reached the district of Pur again. Holiday settlements and campsites alternated up to Pieve, the next town. After extensive sunbathing lawns with bathing facilities, we finally reach a real hiking trail again, which, however, has to be shared in both directions with a large number of cyclists. From Mezzolago the path runs at a certain height above the lake shore. Later the path ends and you only have the option of using a very narrow footpath behind the guardrail of the busy Lungolago lake road.Sometimes you are even forced to walk on the street. After 13.5 km we reach the starting point of the hike, rather disappointed and annoyed.Conclusion: A beautiful mountain lake with blue to turquoise shimmering water, surrounded by majestic mountains, which cannot cope with the onslaught of tourists!Not a place for individualists and not really suitable for a hiking tour 🙁🙁🙁
