A very long and demanding tour to the Adamello-Brenta National Park. Technical riding skills are needed for the descent to Lake Valagola.

Safety information

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

Comano Terme, Ponte Arche – Stenico – Val Algone – Malga Nambi – Mga. Movlina – Bregn da l’Ors – Lago di Valagola – S. Antonio di Mavignola – (DBB Country) – Pinzolo – Preore – Ragoli – Stenico – Ponte Arche

The route starts in Ponte Arche at the tourist board Terme di Comano - Dolomiti di Brenta in the direction of the pedestrian bridge / park. Cross the bridge and keep left. Cross the main road and climb to Stenico [1]. Keep left dir. Ragoli/Tione. After 4 km turn right [2] and ascend on the tarmaced road to Val d’Algone for 12 km. At the crossing [3] near Malga Serli (1577 m) follow the hairpin bend uphill to the right. After about 3 km you will pass by a car park; the tarmaced road ends at a gate, and turns into a gravelled road, still climbing towards Malga Movlina [4 – 1785 m]. A bumpy cart track takes you past the alpine hut and you will cycle on it for about 600 m, until it ends. Continue to climb steeply on your bike or pushing it for 300 m. You will reach the Passo del Gotro [5 – 1859 m] along the pastures. Keep left to the DBB route dir. Passo Bregn de l’Ors [6 – 1844 m]. Follow the harsh right curve downhill to Lake Valagola (1587 m). You might like to walk sometimes. At the end of the beautiful mountain lake [7] , pass by the renovated alpine hut of Malga Valagola. Follow the wide gravelled road downhill for 6 km without turning. At the bottom of the valley cross the bridge on the river Sarca di Campiglio [8 - 1160 m]. Keep left and cycle slightly uphill to S. Antonio di Mavignola (1166 m). Go back following the signs of the DBB-“Country” route. After 600 m, abandon the main road [9], turn left and off you go, leaving the heights behind. Take the smooth cycle path without traffic down to the valley of Pinzolo (770 m). Then take the marked cycle path, which is easy to follow for 15 km (but pay attention at the crosswalks in Spiazzo). Near Ragoli this tarmaced cycle path ends abruptly [11 – 484 m] and turns into a gravelled path going in the direction of Ponte Arche. Start climbing again and the path will take you to the country road going from Ragoli to Stenico [12 – 610 m]. Soon you will pass the junction to Val d’Algone. From now on the route back to Ponte Arche via Stenico (660 m) is well-known to you from the outward journey.

Giro semplice (escluso la discesa dalla malga Movlina al lago Valagola) prima parte su asfalto, poi su forestale in ottimo stato, poi discesa tecnica fino la lago, sterrato e poi tutto asfalto nel fondovalle.. Le emozioni sono solo per il panorama..
