"Meriz", at the top of the Bike Park. You can reach the starting point through the first part of the trail "Giada line" (MTB806) or through the lift "chairlift Meriz-Selletta". The itinerary is suitable exclusively for expert and trained riders.

Author’s recommendation

Trail suitable only for expert riders.

Take note of the lifts' timetable.

Restaurants "Dosso Larici" and "Meriz" are great places 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.

Safety information

Trail suitable only for expert riders

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

Once at loc. "Selletta" (coming from MTB806 trail or through the lift "chairlift Meriz-Selletta"), continue along the ski slope on the right that descends on the side of Fai della Paganella. After a few meters, on the right side starts the trail with a short climb and continues crossing again a ski slope. Here starts the quieter part of the trail with moderate speeds till the "Rifugio Dosso Larici". Passed the restaurant, turn right into the most technical part with several Nose Press bends. Keep right and continue downhill to Malga Fai. Before of the hut you have to turn left crossing the ski slope and climbing over a channel, you'll enter again in a trail in the woods that will end with a new crossing of a ski slope. At this point, keep right on the concrete road and turn right again into the woods following another trail. You'll come back on the ski slope behind the arrival of the "chairlift Rolli Marchi", turn right again and you'll face the last section of trail that will take you directly to the "Rifugio Meriz".
