A short loop, rideable all year round, with two short sections of interesting descent. You’ll be immersed in a unique, sometimes lunar feeling landscape: The Marocche

The route develops in a very tranquil area: between the Sarca Valley and the basin of Lake Cavedine. The route doesn’t present particular technical difficulties, apart from a few short distances of rough ground, with some rather pronounced and sometimes loose rocks and gravel. However, with a minimum of confidence on this type of terrain, the two descents, even if short will leave a smile on your face. For the majority of the ascent, you’ll be riding on the bike path that runs along the river Sarca or, in the case of Lake Cavedine - on small, quiet roads. The Marocche of Dro is a wondrous landscape to behold.

Punto di partenza
Maso Trenti - Dro
Directions

The start point of the route is located along the provincial road that goes from Dro towards Drena (S.P. 84), in the area of ​​‘Maso Trenti’. Following the recommended bike directions, take the secondary road marked ‘Centrale Volta’ to reach the cycle path in the vicinity of The Bike and Wine bar. Those arriving from Arco or Dro, following the cycle path, shall arrive there directly. Continue on the cycle path in the direction of Pietramurata. Once past the old Centrale di Fies (a former hydroelectric plant, now contemporary art space) continue straight ahead, facing some rather testing uphill sections. Once in the Monte Taglio area, the directions of the route lead you to leave the cycle path following the path on your right instead. The initial stretch is up and down on the undergrowth, with some stable but sometimes rather pronounced rocky sections. Once arriving to look over Lake Cavedine, the descent that leads to the water level begins. Pass an old hydroelectric in-take building to follow the dirt / gravel track that runs beside the lake. Upon meeting the asphalt road, keep the left towards the water, then immediately turn right. Always well guided by signs, start to climb again and once in Trebi, continue to follow the main road. Along this stretch, you can admire Lake Cavedine, The Brento and Casale mountains to the left and Paganella in the background - part of the Brenta Group.
Shortly after passing the power line, turn right onto a dirt road. Continue straight ahead, still slightly uphill, passing a short stretch of asphalt. Not long after after finding the dirt / gravel road, the roughest descent of the whole route begins. Once you meet the provincial road for Drena, cross it and take the path that continues on the other side. There is a very tight hairpin at the beginning, then a pleasant descent, with loose terrain, and a beautiful view over the Sarca valley. At the end of the dirt road,  you’ll find the provincial road and, keeping to the left, continue on the road to reach your start point
