Signage: 733a. Variante Leano

The descent, very steep in some sections, alternates different surfaces (gravel, concrete, cobblestones). As it is not uncommon to meet cars between Leano and Prè, please moderate your speed and ride carefully.

 

Author’s recommendation

Leano is a small village in its own right. The huts that the farmers of Prè used to bring their cows to during the summer months to let their animals graze are now a place to relax and rest in the greenery.

Safety information

ITRS - International Trail Rating System

The ITRS is an objective way to assess trails and routes from a biker’s perspective, evaluating four aspects:

  • Technical Difficulty: riding skill level needed
  • Endurance: combined effect of length, uphill and downhill
  • Wilderness: amount of planning required based on mobile phone reception, rescue options, water supply and wildlife
  • Exposure: consequences of a fall

Discover more about the ITRS system and check the classification of this tour in the photo gallery.

Turn-by-turn directions

The route is a variant of the 733. Tremalzo Garda XXL Tour departing from Passo Guil. 

From the pass we descend along the Prati di Guil, pass the alpine pasture and continue along the forest road, ignoring the intersections with paths. After about 3 km we leave the forest for a stretch and encounter the Leano basin, a real mountain pasture village. We pass the little church and continue our descent along the forest road. When we reach Pré, we can follow the cycle path towards the valley and take the Ponale to rejoin route 733 or follow the cycle path towards Lake Ledro.
