Rocks and icecream
Probably one of the most famous MTB spots in the alps since Elmar Moser published his bike guides in the 90s. Already because of the landscape Garda is worth a trip. Ending the descent at the lake, riding along the promenade of Riva del Garda, sitting down and enjoy a good italian coffe and the best icecream. What else do you want?
Ah yes, trails! Well the trails directly around Riva and Torbole are more on the technical side. Fans of rocks, especially loose rocks will love it. You have long descents, for example from the Monte Altissimo 1900vm down to the lake with famous tracks like the 601 on your way.
But also easier trails were built, such as the Navene or Naranch trail. Most of those trails are accessible by shuttles.
Leaving the lake behind and moving to the valleys around - Rovereto for example - the trails change their character, and you will also find some less known trails.
