Stenico – Seo – Sclemo – Tavodo – Dorsino – Centro Sportivo S . Lorenzo in B. – Torcel – Andogno – Premione (DBB) – Stenico
The walk starts from the carpark near the church of Stenico (in the direction of Ragoli) in via Brigata Torino. Follow the signage B3.09 that in some points corresponds to route of the Saint Vili path. You will pass by S.Vigilio theatre along street “Alpi”, then turn right (2) and proceed uphill. At the crossing (3) you will rise rapidly on the right side, keep following the 300 sign. Then you will come to a little chapel, a junction with a wayside shrine with a cross and an isolated bell (5); here you have to turn right (not left towards Malga Plaz) and cycle for a bit on a mule track. After 200 m the cart-track joins a slightly better drive way  where you turn right still marginally climbing.You will reach a little pass between Stenico and Seo and keep easily climbing to Seo leaving behind a hairpin bend . Pass by Seo on the main road, then turn right at the huge crossroads  in the village hwading towards Sclemo. Wnhen you arrive in Sclemo, take a left turn , pass by the main square on the main road, and turn left after 50 m. The unremarkable back street  joins a cart-track after 150 m taking you out of town and into a forest. The forest path offers you a sometimes steep downhill until it rejoins with the main road  near Tavodo. Turn left and take the ring road to Tavodo. At the junction between Tavodo and Dorsino  turn left and immediately after turn right  leaving the main road for the secondary road which will lead to Dorsino. Cross the stream Ambiez , and fight your way up to Dorsino. Cross the village and go straight ahead  while you are cycling under some remarkable old archways. These archways between the close-together houses are typical of this region. At the crossroad at the end of the village keep left and face another steep climb leading to S.Lorenzo.. At the next junction  you keep right. You reach the striking turn around  at the sport centre after a steep ascent. Follow the signs straight ahead to “Moline di Deggia”. A tarmaced road takes you downhill. Here you will find yourself over the gorge of Limarò, in a place offering a stunning view on the deep canyon and on Mount Casale in the background. After a refreshing descent you reach a wayside shrine with a cross . Here take the bumpy cart-track on the right. This is part of the “Dolomiti di Brenta Bike” round tour which you will follow until the village of Andogno. Stick to the “DBB” route, cross the main road [30/31], and reach Premione  on back roads. Keep following the “DBB” route which will take you back to the starting point in Stenico.
