Overview

A strenuous climb to the top of Monte Altissimo. The first section of singletracks leads through the meadows to the northeast and gains approximately 700m. A relaxed doubletrack takes you to the northwestern hillside of Altissimo.

From there, the second section of singletrack will test your downhill skills as you drop the 700m that you climbed earlier. Be aware, you have to get over some harder rocky parts before you end the day.

Description

Take the small road from Nago-Torbole to Monte Baldo by shuttle or your own power. Start at the end of Via Monte Baldo (elev.1.150m).
Follow the Strada Varagna: A short and comfortable doubletrack for up- or downhill to the doubletrack's end at Bocca di Varagna (elev.1.712m). From here you'll take the Sentiero Della Pace #601: The Upper Part to Altissiomo trail and climb to the highest point of the ride (elev.2.079m).

From the high point, you'll begin your descent by following a ridge to the east: Path #622: Altissimo via Bocca Poltrane to Malga Campo. After riding this trail for a while, you'll join Path #650: Upper Malga Campo to Malga Campei at Malga Campo (elev.1.637m). Take Path 650, and continue to follow as the trail turns into Path #650: Lower Malga Campo to Malga Campei. You can make the descent a little easier by taking Malga Campei Path #624: Singletrack through the meadows, mostly earthy.

Here at Malga Campei (elev. 1.320m or 1.470m) the first singletrack section ends.
You'll have to take the forest road Malga Campei: Strada Forestale Frugnoni for a fast downhill to a junction at elev. 970m.

From this junction, you'll have to cross the northern hillside of Altissimo at Strada Brentegana Monte Altissimo where you'll reach the asphalt road of Via Monte Baldo (elev.1.080m). Take this road only for some meters, but keep an eye out. You'll only follow the road for two turns; one bend to the left and in the next bend (to the right) the second downhill section starts on your left hand (elev.1.020m).

Turn onto the Coast Trail: The Upper Part. Connect it with Coast Trail: The Lower Part and Coast Trail: Lower Extension. From the trail's end (elev.200m) follow the roads to Torbole (elev.70m).
