Description

The route starts from the main road (Via Arbostora) that runs up the middle of the peninsula. It first follows Via Ceresolo for about 0.6 km (0.4 mi). At the end of Via Ceresolo, a singletrack begins. After a short climb, the singletrack runs about 3 km (1.8 mi) through the forest roughly following the 520 m (1,700-ft) contour. The track isn't too difficult with a few roots and rocks in the trail.

Around 4.8 km (3 mi), you'll come to an area where several trails intersect. Continuing straight or turning right will take you down to the lake. Instead, turn left towards the Santa Maria di Torello church/convent.

The now privately owned Santa Maria di Torello dates from the 13th century and lies in an open field. From here, a doubletrack climbs 120 m (400 ft) in 1.2 km (0.8 mi) to reach the Monte Arbostora forest road. Just to the left of this intersection lies the beautiful Madonna d'Ongero chapel dating from the 17th century, which is also worth a short detour.

There are several stables in the area, so expect to see the occasional equestrian in this area.
