Naranch Trail is a classic enduro trail, physically challenging (difficulty is 7/10), that offers spectacular scenery. It is perfect for those looking for downhill runs on natural technical trails. 

 

This is the most accessible enduro trail in all of Garda Trentino. Good steering technique and confidence on steep downhill runs is essential.

The first part, as far as Maso Naranch, is fairly wide and easy.  The first stretch is more a single trail for about 400 metres which, then widens out more than a metre for 800 metres. Just before the Maso there is the only rock Garden section which you should evaluate before taking it on.

Below Maso the trail is narrower and full of narrow bends with natural footholds, most of it in a little valley between two ridges and coming out onto a tarmac road which leads to Nago.

The trails all runs through the woods on not too rocky flow terrain.

Directions

The “Naranch Trail” starts from the service area near the trenches overlooking Val di Gresta. Here you keep to the right at the next junctions until you come to the forest trail which runs down the slope above Malga Fiavei. You are now in the area of the farmhouse Maso Naranch, keep on going down until you come to it. The meadow in front of this farmhouse is a natural terrace overlooking Lake Garda and if visibility is at all good, you will simply have to stop and take a photo.

At the end of the meadow overlooking the lake, you will find directions pointing you on down the trail. There are a number of turn-offs here in the woods, all signposted, although, unfortunately, signposts have disappeared on a number of occasions. Following the various shortcuts, you will cut across the narrow, steep, paved road for Nago a number of times: always take great care when you come out of the trail onto the road.

There is not much traffic here but you may come across other vehicles or bikes on their way down. Depending on the state of the trail, certain stretches in this area can also be quite treacherous.

When you get close to the village of San Tomè, the trail is interrupted and you have to follow the steep paved road as far as Nago.

public transportation

Nago can be reached by the number 332 bus from Arco, Riva del Garda and Rovereto, and the urban bus number 3 from Riva del Garda, Torbole and Arco. For up-to-the-minute information on timetables and routes: www.gardatrentino.it
