From the center of Brentonico the route reaches the village of Saccone on a paved road, crossing the pastures around the hamlets. From here the climb takes place on a dirt road, inside large beech woods to the locality of Polsa. Continuing beyond the panorama opens onto the Adige valley, where the gaze can range from the wide panorama of the Lessini plateau to Verona. Along the way you will encounter numerous testimonies of the First World War, such as buildings, ruins, trenches, built in this area by both the Austro-Hungarian and Italian armies. There are many possibilities to stop in characteristic places (Malga Susine, Malga Costapelada, Malga Fos-ce, Malga Campo, Malga Campei) where typical dishes of the local tradition are presented, made with products obtained directly on site. Numerous variants branch off from the main route.

The climb continues on a dirt road through the locality of Cestarelli until it meets the road that climbs from Polsa (1352m).

percorso appagante sotto tutti punti di vista, richiede un po di preparazione, fatto tre volte (in tre giorni differenti!) con variante al Corno della paura e improvvisazioni varie nella discesa, da Malga Campo a casaccio ma si arriva comunque a Brentonico, da S. Giacomo entrando nell'MTB RED TOUR

Nella sezione 'Percorso' la parte finale mi sembra sbagliata perché fa arrivare a malga Campo e non a Brentonico
