The bike path through the Lower Giudicarie is almost 20 km long. It begins in Pieve di Bono and ends in Storo. The path follows the flow of the River Chiese - an affluent of Lake Idro - and travels across a nice rural countryside, weaving both closer and further away from the river. It travels across Ponte dei Tedeschi, before crossing the River Palvico and River Lora on a traditional timber bridge, where it forks. The first branch takes bikers to Storo on a 4.2 km route along the River Palvico. The second path keeps following the left-hand side of the River Chiese and cuts across Storo plain to reach Cà Rossa - at 6.745 km from its starting-point. Cycling a bit further, the path reaches the Fontana Santa Park, at its 8.230 km. Here the road becomes unpaved as it turns into a fascinating nature trail, winding its way through a wild, solitary landscape. A number of interesting items from the past such as the "calchere" - age-old lime ovens - are scattered along the route. The path then takes bikers back across the River Chiese on a pedestrian-cycling walkway to reach the hamlet of Pieve di Bono, where it ends. In the future, the path will continue making its way further up the valley to , Roncone, Breguzzo and Tione (37.8 km) and will be connected to the Redena and Central Giudicarie paths.
