We are working for you!

We are currently working on maintenance and signposting on this trail. While work is under way, we might find better variants: for this reason there might be slight difference between the trail description and the actual itinerary. We will fix this as soon as we finish the work.

We are currently revising description and details of the tour as well. 

Thanks for your patience!

Turn-by-turn directions

Start from the Garda Trentino Tourist Office in Riva del Garda. With the building at your back, take the cycle path towards Museo della Rocca museum and then follow the lake shore as far as Piazza III November. From here, follow the lake shore until you come to the main road heading south. Before the tunnel, turn right and start to climb. This is the only real uphill stretch on the entire “Ponale” area and is quite short. Then head downhill and immediately turn left at the start of the Ponale road. Head uphill on a mainly dirt road which passes through some tunnels. Along this stretch you have a breathtaking view of Lake Garda so a stop-off is highly recommended.
Continue, leaving the Bar Ponale Alto Belvedere on your left. Now you ride on tarmac as far as the junction where you turn right towards Valle di Ledro. The road rises, cutting across the mountainside. At the end of the road you come to the main road and, after just a few metres, take the first road on the left, following directions for Pregasina. After the bridge, take the dirt cycle track on the right. The trail alternates between short uphill stretches and sections which are practically flat. Before you arrive at Prè di Ledro there is a steep stretch on a cement surface. At the top of the hill turn left towards Leano. You are climbing now quite steeply and so you need to use a low gear. From Leano, pass some holiday homes and continue uphill until you come to the Passo Guil pass. Here you turn left and follow direction for Passo Rocchetta. Some sections are fairly exposed so take particular care here! At Passo Rocchetta turn left again and head downhill on trail 422. it is all downhill on a dirt track with exposed roots and some steps. At the end of the track turn left. Here you are cycling along a dirt road, on a gentle uphill gradient, to Malga Palaer. Now turn left where the downhill stretch begins. The road is a dirt track but wide and well maintained. You come to Bocca Larici where there is a spectacular panorama over the lake.
Head down a forest trail where the road surface alternates between dirt and cement until you come to Pregasina. Cycle through the small village which has marvellous views over the northern end of Lake Garda. Head down towards Riva del Garda and on a bend you will come to a statue of the Regina dei Mondi, a panoramic viewing point over the lake. The Ponale road is in front of you. Take it and head down to centre of Riva to your right, while in the background you can admire Arco Castle to the north. Just before the entrance to the tunnel turn right and take the old tarmac road which after a few bends takes us to the junction with Valle di Ledro. Here you turn right in the direction of Riva del Garda. At this point you are on the Ponale road again. Retrace the route you took on the way out and you are back at the starting point.

Bei „Kondition“ sollten mindestens 4 bis 5 Punkte stehen. Daher die Abzüge bei der Bewertung. Auch technisch ist sie mindestens Mittel! Ohne eMotor eine echt harte Nuss. Ansonsten kommt man in Sachen Landschaft und Erlebnis voll auf seine Kosten. Tolle Strecke - muss nur angemessen bewertet werden.

Die Tour ist definitiv nicht „leicht“. Bergauf ist einiges an Kondition nötig um die teilweise sehr steilen Passagen zu meistern.

Zwischen Pre und dem Passo Guil sind mehrere hundert Höhenmeter aufgrund der Steilheit zu schieben. Bereits Elmar Moser und andere aktuelle Führer fahren diesen Abschnitt vermutlich deshalb nur abwärts und bezeichnen ihn als Rüttelpiste.
