Garda MTB-Roundtrip

  

Short Info: 

A beautiful roundtrip along the backcountry of Garda leading through a beautiful valley, the typical Italian countryside and ending with an amazing view over Garda and Bardolino.

 

Route Description:

From the shop, follow the road in the direction of Costermano and turn left at the second roundabout. You are then at the canal bed, which runs along the Val Dei Mollini (Eng: Valley of the mills) and forms an impressive cascade, especially after rainy days. By driving along this path, which becomes increasingly steeper and rockier, one sees on the left and the right, again and again, a joyfully splashing brook course and after the first kilometer the very recommendable Trattoria La Val. Excellent food, idyllic and a little bit rustic furnished, it lures people with atmospheric live music in the evening. Passing the Trattoria, we continue along some rough gravel and stone paths between small waterfalls and horse paddocks to the steep ascent, where most prefer to descend and push the bikes up to the end of the Vals for 5 minutes. Once at the top, turn right and cross the plain to Costermano, past the parish church on the main road to the German Military Cemetery, the resting place for over 20,000 fallen German soldiers. Passing it, one always follows the yellow signs through vineyards and olive groves - a typical landscape for the hilly country at Lake Garda. The next part of the route takes you through the villages of Feudo, San Vito and Cortelline di Bardolino with beautiful views of Lake Garda. Back on the main road, you can now decide whether you are fit enough to cycle up the Rocca (tip: best view of Garda, it's worth it!). Continue along the cultivated fields until you come to a gravel road that leads to the hermitage of the Camaldolese. The ancient Benedictine monastery, built in 1663, is a place of peace and meditation (admission only after fixed opening hours). Pass it on the right, and you are already on the trail up to the Rocca. Unfortunately, the last few meters up to the Rocca are not (or only extremely capable) passable for mountain bikers, so that the last few meters either the bike must be locked or carried up to the Rocca.
