731. Anello Garda Sarca (Cross Country)
A long, less technical route kind of route, rideable throughout the year. It is very interesting from a landscape and cultural perspective.
The Garda Sarca loop was the first route for mountain bikers and hikers created by the Garda Trentino tourism company. Opened in 2011, it precedes the new provincial legislation which regulates the paths. This is the reason why the 731 route signs differ from the newer route signage in the area. The tour involves a good part of the Valle del Basso Sarca (the low Sarca valley) and for the distance of almost 60 km, the ascents and descents vary considerably. The distance and altitude difference make this route undoubtedly demanding. From a technical point of view, apart from a few short sections with rough and sometimes loose terrain, there are no particular difficulties. Both uphill and downhill, a gradient of 20% is reached, mostly on asphalt and in forested areas. If it has rained the terrain may be slippery, especially on the sections of cement.
