A surprisingly lower gradient descent on this very steep mountainside, but be prepared for narrow switchbacks.

Overview

This is an alternative to the three routes officially advertised by the cable railway on Monte Baldo. All in all, a rewarding, rarely used route through the west side of Monte Baldo.

Need to Know

Easiest access for this ride is with the cable car from Malcesine: note the departure times. Or there's easy access with a shuttle service from Torbole to Rifugio Graziani/Monte Altissimo. You'll need lights for the unlit tunnels on your way back to Torbole.

Description

The first part of this ride on Sentiero 16 until Punta di Vo has great scenery. The trail is very narrow and occasionally blocked by roots and rocks. Expect to hike, especially when it's crowded with hikers.

The second (short) part on Sentiero 3 is smooth and fun. The main part on Sentiero 10 leads over an old military track, which has decayed into a singletrack trail. Typical for the Gardasee region, the trails are not well maintained, so expect loose rocks and some fallen trees along the way.

Part four on Sentiero 4/4a gives some nice views of the lake and is faster and fun. The shortcuts in the last section are more difficult and can be avoided by staying on the main doubletrack.
