Panoramic tour located near Fai della Paganella. There are no particular technical sections, however, pay attention on the downhill parts. The route is characterized by some unmissable panoramic windows completely surrounded by nature.

Author’s recommendation

Tour suitable for any type of rider, however, due to some steep climb to face, we recommend the use of an Ebike to the less trained people.

Along the tour you should not miss some interesting places: the archaeological excavations, the ruins of a "Caldara" (old oven to bake lime) and the panoramic tower with a spectacular view of the "Valle dell'Adige".

In the center of Fai della Paganella there is a chance to stock up on water to different fountains. 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.

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 parking behind the "Famiglia Cooperativa" of Fai della Paganella, you have to reach loc. "Capannina" near the playground. At the end of the playground, turn left and follow a dirt road along the park, at the junction turn left again passing the bar "Black Ice", then turn right and continue downhill keeping right, until you get onto the pine forest. After the short climb, turn left and continue until you reach the archaeological excavations. After the excavations you'll find a crossroad with three roads, take the second right (sentiero degli Ori) which continues downhill through a forest of beech trees. After about 2 km you'll arrive to the loc. "Seraia", cross the river and follow the road. Arrived at a crossroads with 4 streets, take the first right, cross a small bridge and turn right again facing the descent. The road continues uphill going to reconnect to the previous intersection, turn right and continue along the uphill which will take you back in the center of Fai della Paganella.
