The tour goes through the upper part of Valle di Ledro, climbs up to Malga Stigolo, descends to Lake Idro skirts the river Chiese and climbs back up to Valle di Ledro via Passo Giovo. A real up and down!

This tour alternates between long stretches of cycle path and forest road and mostly runs along the valley floor and below the forest line, not reaching high altitudes. The rather high drop is due to the double climb, first from Valle di Ledro to Stigolo and then from Valle del Chiese to Passo Giovo.
