Turn-by-turn directions

The itinerary starts at the Ingarda tourist office; with the building at your back, take the cycle path as far as Rocca, then follow the lake as far as Piazza III Novembre. At the end of the town centre, from Piazza Catena, take the main road and head south in the direction of Limone sul Garda. Before the tunnel, turn right and begin to climb. This short stretch is the only uphill section of the entire Ponale route. Come back down again and immediately turn left. This is where the Ponale trail really begins. Head uphill always on a dirt road apart from the tunnels where there is still the original asphalt surface. While you are climbing you have an exceptional view over Lake Garda and it is well worth a stop off to admire it better. Keep going until at the end of the dirt road you come to Bar Ponale Alto (Belvedere) which, as its name suggests, offers a spectacular view of the lake. Cycle on a short distance and you come to a junction where you can choose to head uphill to the right to Valle di Ledro, or go left to Pregasina. You have now arrived at your destination and can head back the way you came.
