Through the Alps of Ledro suspended over Lake Garda

Along the route of the Ledrobike event, between trenches from the Great War

Through the Alps of Ledro suspended over Lake Garda

This route is classified as difficult for its length and the climb involved, although it is technically rather easy, running as it does along good cyclable paths and bridleway tracks. The starting point is at Molina di Ledro, where you can visit the Museo delle Palafitte (lake-dwelling Museum). From here, follow the road that skirts the lake, in the direction signposted for Pur, as far as a sharp uphill bend, where you leave the main road for a track above the shores of the lake. Shortly afterwards, you join the main road again at Pieve di Ledro and continue to Bezzecca, Tiarno di Sopra and then Tiarno di Sotto and Lake Ampola; a short distance further on, at the Ampola Pass, follow the signposts to the main provincial road, on the left, leading to the Tremalzo Pass (11 km away, with an average gradient of 7%). From the Alpine pass, which makes for an excellent viewing point across to the Adamello range and Lake Garda, follow the old military road (which, together with a large number of trenches, bears witness to World War I, in an area crossed by the front line between Italy and Austria) as far as Bocca di Val Marza, and then the peaks of Monte Tremalzo and Monte Carone. A series of downhill hairpin bends and other very scenic stretches eventually lead to the Prà della Rosa and Nota mountain passes; at the nearby junction for Tremosine - Limone, across a small bridge, you face the last climb towards the Bestana Pass, keeping your eyes peeled for the signs pointing to "Guil, Bocca Fortini, Baito Segala". After some ups and downs, across a hilly terrain with some beautiful views, you reach the Guil Pass and the Malga di Vil, from where you descend to the Leano Valley and, from here, via a rather steep paved stretch of road (be careful here!) you reach the promontory of Madonna del Cinale, which rises above the village of Prè di Ledro.
