Cycling from Santa Barbara and Monte Velo back to Lake Garda
The Gresta Valley stretches from the basin of Lake Loppio in the Mount Baldo Park to Mount Stivo, at more than 2,000 meters of altitude. Given its geographic location and altitude, it can be easily accessible year-round.
Road cyclists and fat-wheelers know Val di Gresta, Monte Velo, and the Santa Barbara Pass. In fact, from this area the famous Naranch Trail and Anaconda start that lead back to Lake Garda from Val di Gresta.
Val di Gresta is rich in trails, dirt roads, and single trails.
The Bike Shuttle from Malcesine takes about 45 minutes to reach the Santa Barbara Pass, about 1,200 meters above sea level.
The 8-passenger van trolley can carry up to 8 bikes and all sports equipment out of the sun and rain.
Shuttle service also for trekkers
You can also use this shuttle to get to the start of the hiking trails that go up Mt. Stivo.
