Punto di partenza
Pieve di Ledro
Directions

Starting from the information office, we embark on a cycling journey through the Ledro Valley, heading towards Lake d'Ampola. As we leave the asphalt behind, we transition onto a gravel path, passing by the lake, until we reach the provincial road leading to Tremalzo. Here, we make a right to descend, followed by another right to merge onto the main road that guides us towards Tiarno di Sopra. After approximately 3 kilometres, we take a left onto Via di Brì, entering the village. Our route continues along Via Marconi, running alongside the river. Once we reach a rustic wooden shrine, we make a left onto Via dei Belissi. After rediscovering the river, we cross a bridge on the right and continue along Via alla Sega. Passing the church of Tiarno di Sotto and traversing the entire village, we make a right turn after the bus stop. Crossing the main road, we locate the cycling path, now retracing our steps in the opposite direction. Beyond the Santa Lucia in Pratis church, we take a left, cross the main road, and proceed towards Val dei Molini. At the first junction, we turn right and journey through meadows adorned with chalets and bungalows. After crossing a stream, we follow a paved road leading to the village of Bezzecca. In Piazza Concei, we venture onto Vicolo Pepe, which guides us to the artisanal area. A right turn, followed by a stream crossing, leads us uphill towards Locca. At a shrine, we veer onto the left path, continuing through rural lanes until we reach Lenzumo. From there, we travel along the main road for 4 kilometres until we reach the Rifugio Al Faggio. On the return journey, we retrace our steps through Val Concei, this time via the riverside nature trail. We pass through the artisanal area of Lenzumo and proceed along countryside lanes until we reach Locca. Navigating through the village along the provincial road, we take a traffic-free asphalt road at the hairpin bend, guiding us to Pieve. Crossing the village, we reach the cemetery, then follow the lakeside road until Mezzolago. Entering the village to avoid traffic, we proceed to the church and take a right onto Via Belvedere. After about 1 kilometre, we rejoin the main road. Continuing along the lakeside for approximately 4 kilometres, we pass the Museo delle Palafitte and then Pur. Beyond the beach, we ascend via an asphalt road, eventually reaching a cycling path at the hairpin turn, guiding us back to our starting point.
