Enduro trail that from Fai della Paganella goes down to Mezzolombardo. The path is quite heterogeneous, presenting various uphill sections, alternating stretches flow and technical passages. The itinerary is suitable exclusively for expert and trained riders.

Author’s recommendation

Trail suitable only for expert riders.

The ascent from Mezzolombardo is possible through the highway (pedaling) or with the use of paid shuttle.

A stop to admire the archaeological excavations is strongly recommended.

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

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", before the ford of the river, go right on the dirt road, after about 400m you'll see a path on the left that leads into the forest, follow it until you reach the loc. "Val del Rì". From here continue holding left till the first intersection, then turn right and continue the ascent along the path (in some places you'll have to push your bike) until you come to another dirt road, keep right and, after a long descent and a short steep climb, you'll arrive at  loc. "Belvedere Giuel". From here starts the trail, you'll see a path on your right, follow it pedalling up and down until you get to the "Belvedere" (we recommend a stop). Once you pass the viewpoint, the trail will become fast and fluid with moderate slopes, continue riding but at the same time pay attention because the path will turn right suddenly. Made the breakthrough you'll enter in the second part of the trail, here the difficulties increase in a continuous mix of technical sections with rocky terrain and fast sections with clean and compact ground. Along the trail you'll not find respite and you'll lose about 500 m altitude until you'll arrive in front of the Mezzolombardo's galleries.
