A very runnable sprint ring, after the first 4 km in which most of the height difference is concentrated.

From Varone, two steep and enjoyable climbs (the Gola and Salt paths) take you first to the village of Calvola and then to the medieval village of Canale, which you cross passing the characteristic "faces" of the old trades. When you reach Lake Tenno, you first walk along the lake from above and then along its perimeter, admiring its colours (spectacular in autumn). From Ville del Monte, we return to Tenno, descending along a stretch of the "Molini" path, an ancient crossing of the Magnus River. the ancient crossing of the Magnone stream, then taking the diversions on the left that quickly leads to Tenno, through countryside and vineyards. From Tenno you enter the walls of the historic village of Frapporta, admiring the view of the upper lake and the BUSA (Riva-Arco) from the panoramic point of Il GROM and then descending towards Deva along the path that passes in front of the beautiful little church of San Lorenzo. From Deva, an express descent along Via Roncaglie.

Author’s recommendation
