From Monte Velo above Arco in sight of Lake Garda

This route has Lake Garda as its backdrop, the lake which enchanted Goethe who wrote about it in his "Journey through Italy", describing these as enchanted places where lemons grow among the mountains

From Monte Velo above Arco in sight of Lake Garda

From Arco you come to Bolognano and then take the road for Monte Velo for about 50 m; at a broad bend you take the step asphalted path up the slopes of Dosso Saiano for a short section. Carry on across the hillside on the unsurfaced path (rather uneven making the route more demanding) towards Monte Brugnolo which gives you a break at an altitude of 870 m. Among the oak woods and mountain farms you cross the road again and pedal on towards Ronzo-Chienis, principle village of the Valle di Gresta, as far as the Second World War Memorial Monument. From here, following the signposted "Caproni" route for a short, steep section through the rocks you come out at a viewing point which overlooks the whole Upper Garda area. Carry on downhill towards Carobbi, losing almost 1,000 m. of altitude on a good surface; when you get there, proceed towards Troiana, a lovely little valley surrounded by beech, chestnut and conifer woods. A further descent towards Pianaura and shortly before the village of Massone the it is worth stopping at the natural climbing wall created beneath the ancient olite quarries (the stone was used for ornamental carvings and in construction) so you can observe the climbers involved in their spectacular ascents.
