Mountain & Garda Bike: a ceaseless ride among rocky peaks and stretches of water, challenging hills and easy trails, discovering the beauty of Garda Trentino, Tremalzo and Valle di Ledro, Monte Bondone and Valle dei Laghi, Monte Baldo. 

 

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!
