Tremalzo MTB round tour

Not for no reason the journey from Ledro along the legendary Tremalzo Road is among the most popular mountain bike tours in the region of Lake Garda

We cycle the tour in a clockwise direction, starting in Molina di Ledro. The first section along the Strada del Ponale road proceeds downhill until the village of Prè di Ledro (470 m a.s.l.). There a cobbled mountain road branches off to the right which leads us to the hamlet of Leano. There we take the gravelled forest path to the Malga Vil and the Passo Guil mountain pass (1,211 m a.s.l.). After the arduous ascent, a breathtaking view on Lake Garda awaits us up here. Our route leads us to the junction at the Bocca dei Fortini and further to the Passo Nota mountain pass, where the Rif. degli Alpini mountain hut is located (last rest point before the queen’s stage).

Now the most beautiful but also most demanding section follows. The route proceeds along the actual Tremalzo mountain pass road now, constructed by the Italian Army in WWI. Several series of curves take us mostly uphill , for short sections also downhill again, through little tunnels and beneath the southerly exposed rock walls of the Tremalzo Group. From the 1,200 m a.s.l. at the Passo Nota, we cycle up to the highest point of our tour at 1,855 m a.s.l., to the gallery below the Corno della Marogna mountain. Immediately after the tunnel, the releasing downhill ride starts. First to the mountain hut at the Passo Tremalzo, then along the asphalt road down into the Val di Ledro valley. Here we use the cycle path to come back to Molina di Ledro again.
