If the initial 10% climb on asphalt does not intimidate you, then this short tour will give you the opportunity to admire the tranquil beauty of Lake Cavedine.

An all-year-round tour, suitable even for gravel bikes - if a bit of loose terrain doesn’t bother you. The initial climb, which leads from lake Cavedine to the archaeological area, is all on asphalt. Although the length of the ride is rather short, it would be wise - especially during the hottest periods, to prioritise your personal water supply, as there are no fountains en-route.

The upper part of the route develops on an old block pavement, with some rather rough sections, in the vicinity of some interesting archaeological sites. The descent will be mostly on asphalt with the exception of a short gravel section.

Punto di partenza
Lake Cavedine - Trebi
Directions

The starting point of the route is in Trebi. Coming north from Dro you will find the first sign for route 753 to your right, at the forked road. However, starting from the south of the lake, continue south for a few dozen meters where you should take the first road on your left. Here you will quickly find the route signage which guides you uphill, through the locality of Trebi. Continue to climb on the main road, where the gradient is constant at around 10%. Quickly gaining altitude, you’ll have the possibility to admire the remarkable views of Lake Cavedine and the Sarca Valley.

A little after you have passed over the hill-top, follow a wide curve round to the right. Leave the asphalt road, and take the archeological gravel road, continuing to follow the directions for route 753. All of the turnings are well indicated and the route continues with undulating terrain until the locality of San Siro. Once again riding on asphalt, keep left and start to descend, following the main road - as indicated by the signage.

At the fourth hairpin bend, take the gravel road on the left that brings you back to Lake Cavedine. After approximately 100 meters, the terrain returns to asphalt. Continue to follow the road downhill toward the lake, where you will rapidly meet its tributary.

Turn left here and follow the road that runs along the water course to the south, where for a short time you will arrive at the lake itself. Continue straight on to find the route starting point.
