This variant of the 732. tour unwinds mostly through woods, whereas the last section, the most panoramic, goes across the meadows above the village of Locca at the entrance to Val Concei.

Signage. 732a. Variante Dos de Preghent - Trail

The descent, though much easier than the one via Malga Grassi, is quite steep and requires a little attention in some places.


Author’s recommendation

The church of Locca lies on the slopes of a sunny hill and offers wide reaching views over Val Concei. It is also the location of one of Games of Cubes installations, 100% designed and handcrafted in Valle di Ledro with the aim of bringing attention to some of the valley’s most beautiful and panoramic spots.

Safety information

ITRS - International Trail Rating System

The ITRS is an objective way to assess trails and routes from a biker’s perspective, evaluating four aspects:

  • Technical Difficulty: riding skill level needed
  • Endurance: combined effect of length, uphill and downhill
  • Wilderness: amount of planning required based on mobile phone reception, rescue options, water supply and wildlife
  • Exposure: consequences of a fall

Discover more about the ITRS system and check the classification of this tour in the photo gallery.

Rifugio Pernici

Turn-by-turn directions

The route is a variant of the 732. Rifugio Pernici Trail Tour that allows us to avoid the most difficult part of this tour, the wild descent from Malga Grassi to Campi.

The entrance to the variant is along the road from Lenzumo to Malga Trat at a hairpin bend with a bar that blocks motor vehicles from entering (about 4 km uphill from Lenzumo and 1 km downhill from Malga Trat, shortly after the beginning of the tarmac road).

The descent is almost all on a forest road, with the exception of a well-marked section on a path.  Shortly before the village of Locca, the forest road joins the tarmac road that descends towards the church and leads to the village, where we can take the 732. again to reach Lake Ledro or return to Riva del Garda.

Public transport


Valle di Ledro is connected to Riva del Garda by the intercity bus line 214 (Riva-Valle di Ledro-Storo).

Riding your bike requires specific clothing and equipment, even for relatively short and easy trips. It is always better to be prepared… e.g. for bad weather or a sudden drop in your energy levels. The unexpected things are part of the fun!

Remember to thoroughly evaluate the type of route you plan on doing, the locations you intend to cross and the current season. Has it been raining? Attention: The paths may be slippery and require more caution.

What do I need to bring on my bike tour?

  • An adequate water supply according to your needs (considering temperature, possibility of refuelling and duration of the route)
  • Plenty of snacks (for example, dried fruit or energy bars)
  • Waterproof / Windproof jacket
  • A spare top / spare socks (Descending in a sweaty garment, will make you cold).
  • Suncream
  • Sunglasses
  • Bike gloves/mitts
  • Map or GPS device
  • Bike lights: best placed on your helmet or handlebars. (It is always best to be prepared)

Percorso poco tecnico (quasi tutto asfalto) in salita, non per questo poco impegnativo. Il tratto di single track verso lo sterrato che va verso Locca (indicazione con inchiostro verde su un sasso) é un po sconnesso e scavato dalla pioggia quindi molto tecnico se lo si vuole fare in sella.

Bei der Abfahrt gibt es einen Trail mit 150 Höhenmeter, der sehr ausgewaschen ist und damit für den Durchnittsfahrer eine unangenehme Schiebestrecke auf engem Pfad darstellt. Ansonsten verläugt die Abfahrt, wenn man die Autostrasse verlassen hat auf Forstwegen. Erst flach und am Ende sehr steil. Es gibt im Gebiet schönere Touren
