Punto di partenza
Ponte Arche - Terme di Comano at the tourist board Terme di Comano - Dolomiti di Brenta
Directions

Comano Terme, Ponte Arche – Stenico – Val Algone – Malga Nambi – Mga. Movlina – Bregn da l’Ors – Lago di Valagola – S. Antonio di Mavignola – (DBB Country) – Pinzolo – Preore – Ragoli – Stenico – Ponte Arche

The route starts in Ponte Arche at the tourist board Terme di Comano - Dolomiti di Brenta in the direction of the pedestrian bridge / park. Cross the bridge and keep left. Cross the main road and climb to Stenico [1]. Keep left dir. Ragoli/Tione. After 4 km turn right [2] and ascend on the tarmaced road to Val d’Algone for 12 km. At the crossing [3] near Malga Serli (1577 m) follow the hairpin bend uphill to the right. After about 3 km you will pass by a car park; the tarmaced road ends at a gate, and turns into a gravelled road, still climbing towards Malga Movlina [4 – 1785 m]. A bumpy cart track takes you past the alpine hut and you will cycle on it for about 600 m, until it ends. Continue to climb steeply on your bike or pushing it for 300 m. You will reach the Passo del Gotro [5 – 1859 m] along the pastures. Keep left to the DBB route dir. Passo Bregn de l’Ors [6 – 1844 m]. Follow the harsh right curve downhill to Lake Valagola (1587 m). You might like to walk sometimes. At the end of the beautiful mountain lake [7] , pass by the renovated alpine hut of Malga Valagola. Follow the wide gravelled road downhill for 6 km without turning. At the bottom of the valley cross the bridge on the river Sarca di Campiglio [8 - 1160 m]. Keep left and cycle slightly uphill to S. Antonio di Mavignola (1166 m). Go back following the signs of the DBB-“Country” route. After 600 m, abandon the main road [9], turn left and off you go, leaving the heights behind. Take the smooth cycle path without traffic down to the valley of Pinzolo (770 m). Then take the marked cycle path, which is easy to follow for 15 km (but pay attention at the crosswalks in Spiazzo). Near Ragoli this tarmaced cycle path ends abruptly [11 – 484 m] and turns into a gravelled path going in the direction of Ponte Arche. Start climbing again and the path will take you to the country road going from Ragoli to Stenico [12 – 610 m]. Soon you will pass the junction to Val d’Algone. From now on the route back to Ponte Arche via Stenico (660 m) is well-known to you from the outward journey.
