One of our best cycling trips in the area of Lago di Garda was Passo Rocchetta. The starting point was Riva del Garda. The first part of the trail went through serpentines above Lago di Garda and all the way we had nice views of the lake. The first point we reached then was Pregasina-very small and beautiful village. From there leads only unpaved route in forest.Then we reached the place Bocca Larisi (907 m) with great view of Lago di Garda. After cycling higher and higher from there through the stony path we reached our goal - Passo Rocchetta.
Riva del Garda is a great place to launch your boat to sail on Lake Garda. Many come here just to sail their boats.
