Two less known passes are climbed in this tour, starting at the northern shore of the Lake Garda: the Passo del Ballino and the Passo Duron with exactly 1000 meters. Compared to the more known brothers in the Dolomites, these appear less special but this itinerary shows a very pleasant and variety-rich landscape with a completely different aspect than the one at the Lago.


From Arco (parking area super market Poli) you drive in the direction of Riva and at the third roundabout (1) you turn right onto the SP37 in direction of Madonna di Campiglio / Valle di Ledro. At the next roundabout you drive straight, direction Valle di Ledro (2). Passing more roundabouts in this direction you will soon find signs for the Lago di Tenno (3). After the Lago di Tenno (4), which you circle on the left side, you rise to the Passo del Ballino (5) and descent rapidly thereafter. Turn left (6) and pass the village of Fiavè (7). Turn left in the village and follow the SP222 in the direction of the Passo Duron. After the Passo Duron of exactly 1000 m (8) you roll downhill until you reach Zuclo. Here you turn right and descend to Trento (9) and shortly after turn right onto the SS237 (10). At the next roundabout (11) you turn left for Preore/Ragoli. On the SP34 you go to Stenico, pass Sclemo and at Tavodo (12) you turn left. At the entrance in the SS421 you turn right (13), following the signs for Ponte Arche. At the entrance (14) for the SS237 you turn left “Sarche 9 / Trento 28 / Riva del Garda 30”. Before the tunnel (bikes prohibited) you turn onto the cycle path that joins the main road again after a hairpin curve. In the Sarca valley you turn right and then left (15) at Pergolese onto the SP14. Following it you drive along the Lago di Cavedine and turn right after the entrance (16), through the Marocche to Dro. At Dro (17) you follow the SS45 back to Arco or the cycle path / via Prabi along the Sarca.

Especially during fall you can enjoy this tour because of the colourful dense broadleaf woodland along the path. Optical highlights are also found in the numerous lakes you come across. First, the Lago di Tenno, then the view onto the artificial lake of the Sarca at Comano Terme before you descent into the opening Sarca valley before the lake, and then rolling along the Lago di Cavedine.
