This itinerary of intermediate difficulty runs from Pinzolo to Rifugio Bebole along the 18 km of Val Genova. The route is not particularly technical and so can be enjoyed even by inexperienced cyclists, including on e-bikes to make the trip even easier. This valley, nestled in the Adamello Brenta Nature Park, is home to countless waterfalls, farmhouses and mountain lodges and features many artifacts from World War I, when this valley, then under the rule of the Austro-Hungarian empire, served as the point of access to the Adamello front.

Author’s recommendation

For those who make it to Rifugio Bedole with energy to spare, the road continues for another kilometer to the gondola lift at Rifugio Mandrone, where there is a panoramic view of the valley below. When heading back down, watch out for cars coming in the opposite direction. During the high season, we recommend enjoying this itinerary early in the morning or towards evening when there is less traffic. In the village of Ponte Verde, obey the one-way streets (when in effect), then cross the bridge to the right and continue around the reservoir.

Pinzolo

Turn-by-turn directions

From Pineta in Pinzolo, cross the bridge over the Sarca river. Turn right and continue along the bike path for 600m.

Continue straight at the bridge along the paved road, which will take you to the bridge in the village of Antica Vetreria.

Continue along the paved road for about 500m until the Madonna del Potere chapel.

Turn left onto Via Negrelli and continue on for about 100m, then turn left onto Via Santo Stefano.

Continue along the partially paved road for about 700m until the Santo Stefano church, then continue straight along the dirt road for about 900m until the road becomes paved again.

From here the road remains paved for about 14 km until Malga Bedole before becoming a dirt road again for the 1 km to Rifugio Bedole.

Along this route, you will see (in order): the Nardis falls, the Lares falls, the village of Ragada, the Folgorida falls, the Casina Muta falls, Malga Caret, the Pedruc falls, Malga Bedole and, in the distance, the Matarot falls and the valley’s 5 mountain lodges.

The return trip back down into the valley is the same, with the exception of the one-way streets around the reservoir at the bottom.

When enjoying this itinerary, we recommend paying close attention to traffic, especially on the downhill return.
