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

Punto di partenza

The route is a variant of the 779. Tremalzo Big Tour that allows you to shorten the tour considerably.

Along the Tremalzo provincial road, near the Garibaldi refuge, we take the Caset forest road. When we reach the beginning of the road, we come to a fork and take the path to the left, which first leads to Malga Caset and then to Cima Rinalt. We follow this path down to the valley near Tiarno.

From here we can follow the cycle/pedestrian path to return to Pieve di Ledro and reach the lake.

public transportation

Valle di Ledro is connected to Riva del Garda by the intercity bus line 214 (Riva-Valle di Ledro-Storo).
