Below us the blue and green colours of the rich vegetation, above us the tall vertical rock faces which climb high into the sky…The Ponale road (Strada del Ponale) is closed to motor vehicles and is a very famous bike trail.

Along the route we will find many engineering works, some were used to build the road itself, others linked to the ancient aqueduct of Riva del Garda. The most fascinating  one is the well known ‘Tagliata del Ponale’: a fortification which dates back to the First World War, on different levels all connected between them with a long staircase carved out inside a tunnel…in a few words nature, history and many other points of interest.

A pleasant break at the small bar with terrace overlooking the lake, before crossing the Ponale torrent and tackling the last section of hair pin bends which lead to the panoramic point of Pregasina!

We go back down the same way we came up.
