Child-friendly circuit in an archaeologically significant area.
Signage: 947. Palafitte Bike - Tour
Start in the centre of Fiavé, head south past the Museo delle Palafitte (well worth a visit) until you reach the Torbiera Fiavé, a peat bog where pile dwellings were built in prehistoric times. The route continues southwards. At the highest point it almost reaches Passo del Ballino, the crossing towards Tenno. There the route turns and leads in a northerly direction on gravel paths, slightly downhill through the forest. You then switch back to tarmac and describe a wide loop around the village of Fiavé, through agricultural land. Passing the villages of Dasindo and Favrio, you end up back at the starting point having covered just under 15 kilometres.

Fiavé – Passo Ballino – sentiero Dus – Cornelle – Busca – Curé – Dasindo – Favrio – Molina – Fiavé
 From the centre of Fiavé head south (Via 3. Novembre). When you reach the main road , turn right and immediately right again (localitá Dos). At the end of the street drive through the factory on the left and then turn right at the main road  in the direction of Passo Ballino. After having passed the Torbiera wetlands, on the right hand side (open to the public, no bicycles), the sport field and the picnic area, take the forest road  going uphill. Once you're out of the wood , cycle through the meadows towards a house, turn to left and take the road uphill . Just before the pass, turn abruptly right and traverse the main road [7 – 3.9 km]. The gravelled road descends slightly through the forest for 3 km. Cross a farm track [8 – 7.3 km] and continue straight ahead until you reach another house  and a right bend; finally you will reach the main street going from Fiavé to Cavrasto. Cross the street and follow the farm track, slightly descending. Stay always on the main track, pass two junctions [10/11 – 8.7 km and 9.6 km] and two other junctions [12/13] where you have to turn left both times. You will see the remains of a house at the crossing after the factories in Curè . Here turn right downhill and with a right/left combination, surpass a ditch. Soon the road turns right continuing in the middle of the fields . Turn right again at the next junction  towards Dasindo. Cross the main road , traverse the centre of the village keeping to the left , and then turn to the right side leaving the village behind and head southward. Shortly before the graveyard , take the small and steep tarmaced road to Favrio. There turn right  and take the road that goes back to Fiavé.
