A tour characterised by the significant altitude difference. The challenging ascent, largely on asphalt leads to Malga Campo, on the slopes of Monte Stivo.
Malga Campo, on a clear day, offers a view of the Brenta Dolomites that is simply breathtaking. The route, as proposed here is almost completely on asphalt. First, you shall ride through the rural beauty of the lower Valle del Sarca to reach Drena and the lower Valle di Cavedine. Going on to be immersed in woodland via a long series of hairpin bends reaching up to Malga Campo, with an altitude of just over 1500m. Cross meadows to reach the chestnut trees of Carobbi and enjoy the smooth asphalt descent from Braila to Arco.
Despite the fact that the forrest road descent has some rough and unstable terrain, there are no particular technical difficulties. N.B. The tour is also suitable for e-bikes, if their batteries are well managed.
The starting point of the route is easily identified in Arco, using the cycle path that runs along the river Sarca.
