Tour XC that connects Molveno, through the "Paganella", at the "Pian del Dosson" with a ring of 20km entirely surrounded by woods. The route presents some challenging parts but runs entirely on dirt roads. It's therefore suitable for any type of biker provided with a good workout and a discrete driving technique.

Author’s recommendation

Tour suitable for any type of rider provided with a good workout and a discrete driving technique, we recommend the use of an Ebike to the less trained people.

Restaurant "Dosson" is a great place for a typical lunch or for a short break to regain energy.

Along the way there are several fountains to stock up on water.

Safety information

Rules DPB:

1 Ride Open Trails
Respect trail and road closures — ask a land manager for clarification if you are uncertain about the status of a trail. Do not trespass on private land. Obtain permits or other authorization as required. Be aware that bicycles are not permitted in areas protected as state or federal Wilderness

2 Leave No Trace
Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. When the trail is soft, consider other riding options. This also means staying on existing trails and not creating new ones. Don't cut switchbacks. Be sure to pack out at least as much as you pack in.

3 Control Your Bicycle
Inattention for even a moment could put yourself and others at risk. Obey all bicycle speed regulations and recommendations, and ride within your limits.

4 Yield Appropriately
Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you're coming — a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Bicyclists should yield to other non-motorized trail users, unless the trail is clearly signed for bike-only travel. Bicyclists traveling downhill should yield to ones headed uphill, unless the trail is clearly signed for one-way or downhill-only traffic. In general, strive to make each pass a safe and courteous one.

5 Never Scare Animals
Animals are easily startled by an unannounced approach, a sudden movement or a loud noise. Give animals enough room and time to adjust to you. When passing horses, use special care and follow directions from the horseback riders (ask if uncertain). Running cattle and disturbing wildlife are serious offenses.

6 Plan Ahead
Know your equipment, your ability and the area in which you are riding and prepare accordingly. Strive to be self-sufficient: keep your equipment in good repair and carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions. Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the gondola parking in Molveno turn immediately left along via Belvedere and follow it until the intersection with the SS421 that connects Molveno Andalo. From here, cross the main road and continue up to loc.

Turn left and continue uphill until you cross "via Rindole", turn right and in a few seconds you'll arrive at the ski camp "Le Rindole". From this point, keep left and then right riding on a long false flat that will lead to loc. "Maso Toscana", then continue turning right and getting onto the main road that connects Andalo to Fai della Paganella. Keep riding for about 400m uphill paying attention on your right, you'll find a dirt road that goes uphill towards the "Pian del Dosson", follow it. Once arrived at the "Pian del Dosson", take the dirt road that leads into the forest passing adjacent to the intermediate station of the "Paganella 2001 gondola". Ride into the woods for a few kilometers until the crossing of a ski slope, continue to follow the dirt road keeping left, after a few minutes you'll arrive at loc. "Acqua delle Scudelle".
