You diverge from the Dolomiti di Brenta Bike main route at Lake Nembia: views over the Limarò gorge and of the lakes of Toblino, Cavedine and Garda reward your efforts after the tough uphill to Margon (according to a local sign, “where silence is a precious resource”) and up again to the alpine pastures at Gazza. From here you cross grazing land and pastures to Monte Gazza and Paganella: a tableland you can cycle across with spectacular views of the Dolomites!

Percorso non adatto alle biciclette, ma da fare a piedi. Ti fa percorrere sentieri anche difficili. Se si vuole fare in mtb bisogna adattarlo per le strada e per le forestali. Il dislivello totale si aggira attorno ai 1800/2000 non come scritto 3000m

Il sentiero che parte dalla strada asfaltata per Ranzo é da fare a spinta per 100mt poi risulta difficile seguire la traccia indicata perché anche il sentiero seguente é da fare a piedi (c'è anche cartello NO MTB) quindi ho dovuto andare alla Malga Gazza per la strada asfaltata. Poi si può seguire la forestale verso nord direzione piste perché la traccia risultava errata.
