An adrenaline-infused and challenging descent that repays the exertions of the ascent to Tremalzo.
The first part, between Rifugio Garibaldi and Bocca Caset, unfolds on a relatively even forest road, whereas the descent proper happens in the second half of this route, as the trail gets narrower and the surface more uneven.

This information is subject to inevitable variations, so none of these indications are absolute. It is not entirely possible to avoid giving inexact or imprecise information, given how quickly environmental and weather conditions can change. For this reason, we decline any responsibility for changes which the user may encounter. In any case, it is advisable to check environment and weather conditions before setting out.
The route is a variant of the 779. Tremalzo Big Tour that allows you to shorten the tour considerably.
Along the Tremalzo provincial road, near the Garibaldi refuge, we take the Caset forest road. When we reach the beginning of the road, we come to a fork and take the path to the left, which first leads to Malga Caset and then to Cima Rinalt. We follow this path down to the valley near Tiarno.
From here we can follow the cycle/pedestrian path to return to Pieve di Ledro and reach the lake.
Valle di Ledro is connected to Riva del Garda by the intercity bus line 214 (Riva-Valle di Ledro-Storo).
Up-to-date information on timetables and routes.

Riding your bike requires specific clothing and equipment, even for relatively short and easy trips. It is always better to be prepared… e.g. for bad weather or a sudden drop in your energy levels. The unexpected things are part of the fun!
Remember to thoroughly evaluate the type of route you plan on doing, the locations you intend to cross and the current season. Has it been raining? Attention: The paths may be slippery and require more caution.
