MTB route from Riva del Garda to the Cavedine valley
From Lake Garda to the romantic Lake of Toblino
The Valle dei Laghi cycle path is one of the most beautiful and famous cycle paths in Trentino. 30 kilometers long, it runs through the Sarca Valley for a holiday suitable for those who love being outdoors and immersed in unspoiled nature.
From Torbole sul Garda the cycle path begins to climb along the valley that runs along the Sarca River and, as you go up, the landscape becomes more and more green and moves away from the chaotic town of Riva del Garda to give way to quiet and isolated places, between vineyards and apple orchards.
Between Ceniga and Dro, for 3 km, take the road that enters the town center but if you have an MTB, you can take a beautiful dirt road that runs through the cultivated fields. Beyond the town of Dro, the cycle path crosses, with some ups and downs, the “marocche di Dro”, a huge area with large stones deposited during the postglacial era, with the possibility of finding dinosaur footprints. Then you reach the town of Pietramurata, from where you can go on till Lake Cavedine.
Once at the end of the cycle path, in Sarche, it is possible to extend the trip by a couple of kilometers by continuing to Lake Toblino. It is really worth going along the drawbridge and entering the castle near the lake to have a drink at the bar inside and savour the air of other times.
