This stretch of the long-distance mtb competition 100 km dei Forti represents the ring developing in the territory of Folgaria. Is a challenging route that requires technical skills and gives great satisfaction thanks to its variability and to the numerous historical, naturalistic and panoramic points of interest.

The spectacular mtb circuit of the "100 Km dei Forti" combines the areas of Folgaria, Lavarone and Luserna. This is the stretch on the territory of Folgaria. The high variability, the important differences in height, the sudden changes in altitude suggest this track only to experienced bikers. It requires a lot of effort but allows you to visit beautiful places such as the Forts of the Great War Dosso delle Somme, Sommo Alto and Cherle, some of the most exciting views in Trentino on the Brenta Dolomites, the Adamello and Presanella glaciers and the mountains overlooking Lake Garda.

Author’s recommendation

Segnali per percorso 842 non ce ne sono, é possibile seguire il percorso 100km dei forti. Bellissimi paesaggi, saliscendi mai troppo impegnativi.. Al passo Coe ho allungato andando al passo Valbona e tornando poi via asfalto fino al passo Sommo..
