A short tour on the hangs of the Monte dei Pini (pine mountain in Italian), behind the village of Tiarno di Sotto.

The uphill leg of the tour is on an easy to ride forest road, but the slope should not be underestimated, whereas the descent takes place on a technically more demanding trail.

At the start of the descent, just before turning into the trail, it’s worth taking a short detour along the forest road to a place called Le caldiere. After two narrow curves the view opens towards Lake Ledro.

Safety guidelines

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
