On a length of 28 km, the Val Rendena cycling trail stretches from Pinzolo via Villa Rendena and Tione to Lake Ponte Pià. Most of the track parallels the Sarca river, emptying the area of the Brenta Dolomites and the Adamello Presanella mountain massifs.
Starting in Pinzolo underneath Madonna di Campiglio, the track circuits the village, paralleling the river, and proceeds towards Strembo, where it goes round the golf course of Bocenago. The valley basin is characterised by meadows and fields. After the village of Spiazzo Rendena, it proceeds on the eastern side of the valley, past Villa Rendena, down to the area of Tione di Trento.
From here you can proceed further 8 km, via Preore and Ragioli, to the lake of Ponte Pià. Otherwise you could also do a tour on the ancient panoramic road (SP 34) to Stenico, starting from Ragoli. What is guaranteed is a great view of Comano Terme and Fiavé. Stenico is also site of the famous castle, in which makes you admire a regional collection of arts.
