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

From "Passo S. Antonio", keeping right, follow the dirt road towards "Doss Pelà", continue passing "Malga Terlaga" till the junction with the dirt road that connects "Doss Pelà" to "Bait del Germano", then turn left. Ride along the way till the arrival of the "chairlift Paganella 2", then turn right and ride along the stretch of dirt road that runs down the ski slope. Arrived at the start of the "chairlift S. Antonio" continue keeping left along the first part of the ski slope, pay attention to the left because this is the point where the trail starts. The first part is easy, then the difficulties begin to increase: rocks and roots will continue to alternate until the crossing with a dirt road. The second part of the trail will be right in front of your eyes. Continue along the trail in the woods until the crossing with another dirt road, follow it turning left and then turn right on the path to Molveno. This last part of the trail has more technical and challenging passages, but in a few minutes will take you directly in loc. "Acqua delle Scudelle", now you are on the dirt road that connects to the second part of the trail MTB805 that will lead you straight to Molveno.
