Safety information

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.

San Lorenzo in Banale - sport center

Turn-by-turn directions

San Lorenzo in Banale – Dorsino – Dolaso – San Lorenzo in Banale – Senaso – Baesa (Val d’Ambiez) – Malga d’Ambiez – Andogno – Torcel (DBB) – Centro Sportivo

The route begins from the car park of the sport centre in San Lorenzo in Banale. Go downhill at the crossing in the direction of Dorsino, and stay on the main path. In the old centre of Dorsino [5] turn right, cross the main street [6] and keep climbing this street. You will reach a tight crossing [7] where you have to turn right on a forest road. The road becomes less steep. At the village Dolaso, turn left before the church [8]. Leave the church below you and reach San Lorenzo in Banale. At the first junction [9] keep to the right; in a moment the street joins the main road at a hairpin bend [10]. Follow the main road for 200 m uphill and turn left after the church [11]. This secondary road will take you uphill to some nice villages of the Banale area, such as Pergnano and Senaso. There is a beautiful old church in Pergnano [12] which you can see on the right side of the road. Turn right and then left and you will arrive in Senaso [13]. In the middle of the burg, turn left and take the small street that will lead you out of the village through pastures and woods. Then you will reach the crossing with Val d’Ambiez. After about 1 km we abandon this path at a junction [14] where you have to turn left [15] and continue on a steep descent. Pay attention and don't miss the next junction after about 1 km on the right [16]. [This junction is near point 07 of the route which we have already passed uphill]. The path becomes a nice single trail, quite technical, enters the forest for about 1 km, then it rejoins the main road near Malga d’Ambiez [18]. Follow the main road on the right, which leads you on a descent over the bridge of the Ambiez canyon. Immediately after the bridge turn left in the direction of “Dolomiti di Brenta Bike” track. Cross again stream d’Ambiez on a small bridge on the left. Keep right at the next junction and cross the stream again. The route will take you into a forest road heading towards Tavodo. Shortly before the point where the street hits the main road [21], still climbing, take the secondary road on the left which will take you down to Andogno [22]. Turn left and cycle along the original “Dolomiti di Benta Bike” track. After 2 km the track becomes a small forest path for 800 m and leads you to a wayside shrine [26]. Turn left and return to the starting point ascending on the main path.
