The route begins in the centre of Moniga del Garda: from Piazza San Marco, cross the town to reach the castle with the pretty village enclosed within its walls. Continue along via Roma and, having crossed the SP572 and the roundabout to the north, take via Monte Cicogna. After 1.44 km, the road turns into a dirt track through a beautiful rural landscape comprising meadows, vineyards and olive groves. The track becomes asphalted when you cross via Trevisago, which you follow for about 300 metres before turning onto a small road to the right, via XXV Aprile, which takes you through the village of Soiano del Lago towards the beautiful castle (3.6 km, 193 m asl). Head back along via San Michele and southward along the SP25 road, like on the outward journey, until you reach the roundabout. Follow the road to the right (first via San Carlo Borromeo, then via Roma), then after about 4.9 km turn right onto via Enrico Fermi. After about 200 m, the road becomes a dirt track until it joins the cycle path, which you then follow faithfully, turning right to reach Castelletto (6.77 km, 239 m asl), with its beautiful fresh-water fountain. Having passed the small hamlet of houses, continue uphill along via Montropero to reach a beautiful plain covered with geometric rows of vines. Follow the red and white signs for path no. 801 through a beautiful hilly landscape dotted with woods, cultivated fields and vineyards, until you cross via Brescia. Along via Levrini, keeping the vineyards on the right and, for a short distance, an industrial area on the left, turn left onto via Fienile where you find signs for the cycle path towards Salò (10.3 km). Follow this until you cross via Brescia again after 2 km. From here, continue in an easterly direction, crossing Soiano del Lago and then the roundabout at SP572. From here, retrace your route to Piazza San Marco in Moniga del Garda.
