Pleasant tour around the "Lago di Molveno" and the "Lago di Nembia". The route runs on dirt easy roads except for a short but intense climb located at the beginning of the tour. The landscape is particularly pleasant along the whole itinerary.

Author’s recommendation

Tour suitable for any type of rider provided with a good workout and a discrete driving technique, we recommend the use of an Ebike to the less trained people.

Pay attention to the two intersections with the SS421.

Along the way there are several fountains to stock up on water.

Safety information

Rules DPB:

1 Ride Open Trails
Respect trail and road closures — ask a land manager for clarification if you are uncertain about the status of a trail. Do not trespass on private land. Obtain permits or other authorization as required. Be aware that bicycles are not permitted in areas protected as state or federal Wilderness

2 Leave No Trace
Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. When the trail is soft, consider other riding options. This also means staying on existing trails and not creating new ones. Don't cut switchbacks. Be sure to pack out at least as much as you pack in.

3 Control Your Bicycle
Inattention for even a moment could put yourself and others at risk. Obey all bicycle speed regulations and recommendations, and ride within your limits.

4 Yield Appropriately
Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you're coming — a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Bicyclists should yield to other non-motorized trail users, unless the trail is clearly signed for bike-only travel. Bicyclists traveling downhill should yield to ones headed uphill, unless the trail is clearly signed for one-way or downhill-only traffic. In general, strive to make each pass a safe and courteous one.

5 Never Scare Animals
Animals are easily startled by an unannounced approach, a sudden movement or a loud noise. Give animals enough room and time to adjust to you. When passing horses, use special care and follow directions from the horseback riders (ask if uncertain). Running cattle and disturbing wildlife are serious offenses.

6 Plan Ahead
Know your equipment, your ability and the area in which you are riding and prepare accordingly. Strive to be self-sufficient: keep your equipment in good repair and carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions. Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the bridge of "via Lungo Lago", follow the road until you get to a small roundabout, turn right towards the hill and at the first intersection turn left heading towards the lake. Continue along the flat dirt road until you reach a small bridge, keep left and face the short climb that will take you to the junction for the "Fortini di Napoleone". Go straight down the slope along the lake following the main road, In a few minutes you'll be exactly at the other end of the lake. At this point, following the signs, turn right onto a paved road, keep right and after about 1 km you'll be on the shores of the beautiful "Lago di Nembia". Once past the lake, turn left and follow a dirt road that will take you back exactly to the "Lago di Molveno". From here follow always the undulating path on the side of the lake and, after a few kilometers, you'll come to cross for 2 times the SS421. Passed these two crossings you'll ride again on the shores of the lake and within minutes you'll be at the starting point.

Percorso sostanzialmente piano attorno allo splendido lago di Molveno. Rispetto al percorso indicato lo abbiamo fatto al contrario e a piedi, cioè all'andata facendo la sponda sinistra del lago partendo da Nembia e al ritorno quella destra. Mi sentirei di consigliare questo senso di marcia piuttosto che quello indicato. Per chi utilizza la MB segnalo la sponda dx è più stretta e accidendata. Inoltre il passaggio per la sponda dx prevede alcuni brevi tratti sulla statale, per cui serve particolare prudenza in quanto transitano veicoli. Assolutamente consigliato per chi cerca un percorso discretamente lungo, variegato e non impegnativo.

Super divertente e rilassante, portate le scarpe comode e una macchina fotografica perché il panorama è fantastico, adatto a tutti, in un passaggio la salita è impegnativa però con pazienza si fa il giro in 2-3 ore ovviamente in base alle proprie forze. Fatto sia in bici che a piedi!

Gute Trainingsrunde, eher CC Style. Wenig Fahrtechnik erforderlich. Bremsen auf losem Schotter sollte man jedoch scho mal geübt haben. Wie man dafür 2:15h haben kann ist mir schleierhaft. Habe die Runde inkl. Nembia Schlaufe zweimal gemacht, jeweils in zirka 55min. Die Nembia Schlaufe kann man auch weglassen, ohne viel zu verpassen. Einfach auf der Teer Straße nach den Parkplätzen rechts, links abbiegen, den Wegweiser sieht man nur aus der anderen Richtung.
