all details
Cross Country (XC) tour with a dual personality: the first part is very hard, with a steep climb that connects Santel to the top of the "Monte Fausior"; the second part is very easy, on top of the "Monte Fausior" you ride along a pleasant scenic loop surrounded by woods. At the beginning of the second part you can visit the "Croce di Fai" and enjoy a breathtaking view over the "Valle dell'Adige".

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.

Attention to the final steep descent on a dirt road.

Restaurant "TRE3" is a great place for a typical lunch or for a short break to regain energy.

Along the way there are no fountains to stock up on water. Start properly prepared. User

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.
