Monte Baldo mountain bike itineraries

When warm weather arrives, nature lovers should not pass up the chance to ride one of Monte Baldo's many mountain bike routes.

From May to the end of the season, the Funivia di Malcesine / Malcesine cable car provides special rides from 8:25 am to 8:55 am (one-way trip) for the transport of bicycles, with 24 cabin seats available per hour. This makes it easy for biking enthusiasts to reach the uphill station, load their bicycles into the cabin, and then descend to the valley along beautiful and panoramic nature trails of varying levels of difficulty.

Please remember that you may not ride freely through the meadows. Instead, you must stay on the marked routes and respect nature, the grazing livestock, and hikers.

We would also like to remind you that you should choose the Monte Baldo mtb path to follow according to your own abilities, level of training, and technical knowledge. All routes are maintained by third parties and are only mentioned here.
