A very short route but with a steep ascent and an all-round technical trail. Despite its short distance, the road surface varies continually, ensuring fun all the way.
A loop just 8 km long in the marvellous surroundings of Lake Tenno. Though short, this route has a challenging ascent and an interesting downhill run which should not be underestimated. The initial climb is on a road with a gradient of 15%, then the trail continues on an easy forestry road until it comes to the start of the single track which finishes not far from lovely Lake Tenno. Though short, this trail has a number of passages which require good control of the bike if you are to do them in safety.
The lake is famous for its colours and the purity of its water; in the summer it is a fantastic spot for a swim. Finally, you cross what is probably the most famous medieval village in Alto Garda, Canale di Tenno. Near the highest point of the climb, if you continue for another 1.5 km and little more than 100 metres in elevation gain, you will come to the mountain hut Rifugio San Pietro, situated on a natural terrace overlooking Lake Garda.
