Safety guidelines

ITRS - International Trail Rating System

The ITRS is an objective way to assess trails and routes from a biker’s perspective, evaluating four aspects:

  • Technical Difficulty: riding skill level needed
  • Endurance: combined effect of length, uphill and downhill
  • Wilderness: amount of planning required based on mobile phone reception, rescue options, water supply and wildlife
  • Exposure: consequences of a fall

Discover more about the ITRS system and check the classification of this tour in the photo gallery.

Punto di partenza
Loc. Moletta - Arco

At the traffic light cross the main road and turn left, cycling down the footpath. Almost immediately turn right into Giare, now cycling along a side road with little traffic. Continue along this road watching out for signposts for the Anello Garda Sarca Ring which you follow in reverse. Turn into via Trento Trieste and then turn right and continue through fields, always keeping to the right. Cycle along the Coste di Varino and come back for a short stretch on the main road SP84 in the direction of Drena. After about 600 metres turn right. Now you are at the gorge Forra del Rio Sallagoni and start to climb on a dirt track along the Brozza road until you come to the main road. Turn right towards Drena.
As you climb you have a spectacular view of the entire valley below, Arco Castle, Monte Brione and the lake in the distance. Now you come to Drena where you must stop off for a visit to the castle which is another excellent viewing point.
Cycle through the picturesque centre of Drena along the road which runs parallel to the main road. Turn left at the stop sign. You are in Luch. You return to the main road for a short stretch and keep on for about 300 metres before turning right in the direction of Malga Campo. You climb uphill on tarmac and, after a bend in the road, turn right and continue along the same road as far as the Zanetti farm. Now you head downhill to La Casina until you come to a dirt road. The road alternates flat stretches with gentle uphill gradients, with a view of Drena Castle all the way. Now head down a dirt road, surrounded by the sculptures of the Open Air Gallery, an exhibition of art installations in natural surroundings. Turn left and take the tarmac road as far as Braila. You cycle uphill through the little hamlet and then begin a downhill run to the end of the dirt road. Now turn left and you are riding on tarmac again. A series of flat and short uphill stretches take you to Pianaura where you can take a look at some petroglyphs carved into the rock which date back to the Iron Age. Now you head down to the right through one of the most famous areas for the production of chestnuts. The descent through the woods, all on tarmac, offers spectacular views of Arco and Lake Garda. To your right you can see the Policromuro crags, one of the most famous climbing areas in Europe. Cycle through some olive groves and at the first junction, turn left until you come to the little square in Massone. Ride under the portico in via Bezzecca and go straight on. Follow the signs to San Martino and go back in short to the starting point.
