From the glimpses on lake Garda to the terraced fields of Val di Gresta, passing through Lago di Cei
Distance 69.2 km
From the lake to the mountains to explore some of the most characteristic areas of Vallagarina. After a breathtaking view of Lake Garda, you go up to Santa Barbara, the starting point for various excursions on Monte Stivo. From there it then descends, surrounded by the cultivated fields of the Val di Gresta, the organic vegetable garden of Trentino, up to Ronzo Chienis and ftom there up to the Bordala pass and then downhill to Lago di Cei. Here nature offers, in every season, intense and wonderful colors: the green of nature that is reborn in spring, the pink of the water lilies lying on the water in summer, the orange that lights up the forest in autumn, the white of snow in winter. Last stretch of descent, passing at the foot of Castel Noarna and you return to the valley floor, to Rovereto.
Discover the DAL, a maze of paths from Patone di Isera to Nomi through fields, woods, meadows and villages of the Destra Adige Lagarina
A flat stretch of 14 km up to P.sso San Giovanni; from there begins the gentle descent towards Nago and Arco of about 6 km. In Bolognano turn right for a pedaled ascent of 1,000 meters in altitude and 13 km in length on a narrow panoramic road in the woods up to Passo Santa Barbara. A further 2 km of steep descent leads to the built-up area of Ronzo Chienis, where it starts to climb again for 4 km up to the Bordala pass, at an altitude of 1,250. Once downhill, take a quick descent on an excellent road surface up to Lake Cei, at an altitude of 900 meters. 8 further km of fast descent separate from the last 5 km climb which, passing under Castel Noarna, leads to the Pissavacca waterfall. After the built-up area of Patone, descend for 7 km until you return to Rovereto.

From the A22 exits of Rovereto Nord or Roverero Sud, you reach the village of Borgo Sacco. There, taking as reference the building of the former Manifattura Tabacchi, we reach the Leno torrent, where we meet the small bridge of the Zigherane.
