Usually ridden as a descent. Climbing this road is only recommended in the early morning. A lot of bikers who have been driven up by shuttle take this way downward.

Description

Start at the end of the tarmac road ("Tremalzo Nord") at the restaurant / alpine hut "Rifugio Garda." Car parking is possible here.

A gravel road (Trail #224) continues upward to "Passo Tremalzo." The highest point is a tunnel (It is possible to ride the tunnel without light - you can see the bright end). Leaving the tunnel, you have started the breathtaking downhill on the old road. A lot of gravel, some easy rocky section, some tunnels and a big flow bring you quickly down, more than 2.000' to "Passo Nota" (alpine hut with small restaurant, mostly open).

Here, ends the dirt road and continues to the right as a tarmac road down to Limone, Lago die Garda.

View from Tremalzo tunnel nr.1 upward to the south: You can see the gravel road first on the left side, then tunnel nr.2 on the right side. There are some more visible parts of the gravel road in the center and then on the left side of photo. The end at Passo Nota is marked.
