A short stretch of paved road takes to the north shore of the Lake of Cavedine, from where winding trails - considered the best flowtrails of the whole region - lead through the forest till the south shore of Lake of Cavedine. There are no better MTB trails than these! After a short uphill stretch on paved road, bikers can once again enjoy riding on pleasant trails till reaching the road to Drena, a road that has to be followed uphill till Drena Castle.
From there riders get back to the infinite network of trails between the village of Cavedine and the lake of the same name, a network that may cause some confusion, were it not for the tracking and precise data supplied by Bike-GPS. Get surprised by the fabulous, winding trails this tour holds for any MTB lover.
After reaching the small car park of San Siro, the descent towards Lake of Cavedine runs alongside the steep walls devoted to climbers. Just as much as the first section of the tour is flow and fun, the second section demands technically skilled riders. Those who are not experienced freeriders will need to get off the saddle and walk some short stretches instead.
Way back on the bicycle path of Limarò, alongside the edge of the gorge of river Sarca and then to Maso Limarò, where local specialties wait for bikers.
