The Lake Ledro has become better known due to its archaeological findings. Many years ago, this mountain-lake was also “discovered” by numerous bikers. Therefore, many of the path are perfectly indicated by now.


From the port in (1) Riva del Garda (70 m) you proceed south for approx. 500 m while following the “western Gardesana”. Little before the tunnel you start to climb on the “Sentiero del Ponale”. 3 km later you reach the terrace-bar “Ponale Alto”. At the following junction you keep the right (sign Pre/Molina). Following the access-road into the Ledro valley for approx. 2 km, you reach the entrance into the (2) SS240. On the main road you continue until you reach the bridge, which you cross to continue via the steep forest road on the right (also bike-track), continuously entering the valley (sign Pre/Molina). Following the signs you will reach the village (3) Pre (501 m). Across its centre and always entering the valley you will reach (4) Molina di Ledro (640 m). After approx. 700 the path enters the main road next to in (5) info-point. The now following path around the lake goes clock-wise and along the road close to the shore. You pass the village (6) Pur (662 m) and reach the suburbs of (7) Pieve di Ledro (658 m) after having passed through a small forest. At the second junction and little behind the small stone bridge you turn right in the direction of the lake until you come to the (8) Hotel/Ristorante Lido. Close to the hotel you will find yourself on a gravelled road and the bike is “allowed” on this track. In the season, this path is frequented by hikers and you should consider using the road parallel to this path. At the village of Mezzolago you follow the (9) main road SS240 for a short track to then enter the lake-path again and to reach the info-point at Molina di Ledro. Your way back follows the same track until you reach Riva del Garda. In 1929, some interesting pieces of constructions from the Bronze Age were found in the area around the Lake Ledro. The most notable of these and also some reconstructions can be visited in the museum right next to the lake.

Starting point

Target point

Riva del Garda, 70 m


Asphalt: 55%    
Forest road: 45%            
Comfortable mountain-bike tour with unique panoramas: mostly over bike-tracks and little-frequented side road without any technical difficulties worth mentioning. After the village of Pre you will find two asphalted climbs that are a little steeper than the rest. Be aware of the downhill at the terrace-bar “Ponale Alto”. On this narrow mountain road you will encounter dirt patches and sometimes heavy traffic while some of the curves are not secured perfectly (steep slopes).
