In the Val di Sole, specifically in the Folgarida-Dimaro area, you can travel a dirt road surrounded by nature, skirting the Meledrio stream, which mixes waterfalls with ruins of old artisan workshops. A cable car then takes you up to high altitude loading your bike, to descend back down into the valley admiring the beautiful views courtesy of the Brenta Dolomites, from the highest point of the route at the top of the Daolasa gondola to the stunning Brenta terrace of Malghet Aut.
The route starts with a 1 km asphalt climb and then enters the forest on the left. A dirt road is followed down to the Meledrio stream. From here, head back downstream by taking a left along the dirt road that runs alongside the river.
At some point you park your bike to go to Pison Falls, which is worth a visit, about a 10-minute walk away.
After the break, we go further down the river to Dimaro. Before the village begins the first traces of the Ecomuseum dedicated to ancient crafts, with ruins and old craftsmen’s huts. You go through the village and then take the beautiful Val di Sole bicycle path that leads without road traffic to the start of the Daolasa gondola lift.
You take the ski lift down to the Mastellina and admire an early panorama at altitude. From here there are many ways to descend: the one we propose is the softer one, which, although it has fairly steep sections on a dirt road, has no particular technical difficulties.
Reaching the second wonderful view of this itinerary, the terrace of the Malghet Aut, overlooking the Brenta Dolomites, the alternatives for returning to Folgarida are three: you can go down the dirt road; walk a small technical section (this is the option shown in the gpx track) or take the direct route down the ski slope to the village, the choice is yours!
