This route leads to particularly interesting places in the valley. Shortly after the departure you will find the building of the old Venetian sawmill, which is still working nowadays. Then a cycle path leads to the majestic forest of Val Cadino with high logs of spruce and fir. In Arodolo, at 1200 meters, your body can rest, while the view sweeps from the blue water of the Stramentizzo dam to the wonders of the green Val di Fiemme. At the end of the descent on the right you can admire the imposing Cavalese waterfall.

Author’s recommendation

Also suitable for E-MTB. A stop at the waterfall, on the bridge closest to the jet of water, gives refreshment thanks to the micro particles of water suspended in the air.

Destination

Cavalese - Piazza Verdi

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting in Cavalese, follow the directions to the waterfall, passing near the old water-powered sawmill, still working nowadays. Once arrived at the waterfall, continue along the cycle route to Molina di Fiemme.

The climb you will face next, never too hard, goes up to Val Cadino first and then heads on into the wood to the area of Arodolo.

On the way back, descend on an easy forest road to the waterfall and then continue along the cycle route to Masi di Cavalese. From here, thanks to an underpass, you can cross the valley floor road and ride back up to Cavalese, partly on the Vecchia Ferrovia (Old Railway) track.
