The round starts on the trail of the “Ronda piccola” … however, at the Rifugio San Pietro the trail leads on fresh, newly explored forest trails to the Val Lomasone, from there steeply uphill to Malga di Vigo and further to “Sentiero dei Russi”, a very interesting, really well cyclable trail built in the First World War by Russian war prisoners and finally it runs in the last very glamorous part of the “Ronda piccola” with dreamlike views over the Lake Garda down to Riva again.

 

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!

Next to the Tremalzo tour one of the nices tours i did during my staying in Arco. Not an easy one!! It begins with steep asphalt climbs through Tenno. After that it flows into schotter and concrete roads through the woods which is nice but you may not enjoy it because it will get steeper and steeper! (20+ %). Between the climbs and after the last climb you will get rewarded with very very nice (singletrack)trails. The nices i have seen during my staying in Arco. (I started and finished in Arco, altimeters where 2600Hm)
