The route of the Giudicarie Inferiori cycling path covers a distance of about 20 kilometres. It starts from the Chiese river delta on the shores of Lago d’Idro, passes through Storo, and crosses the towns of the Valley all the way to Bondo.
The place of “judgement”: not of your physical condition, but in a historical sense. This is the land of the seven Parishes, and therefore of the seven main churches. There are many places of artistic interest along the route, from the Santa Maria Parish church in Condino to the church of Santa Giustina in Pieve di Bono. The cycling-hiking path is an excellent starting point to discover the signs left in the territory by the Great War, like walkways, trenches, and posts.
Safety informationPlease note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
