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.

Turn-by-turn directions

Stenico – Seo – Sclemo – Tavodo – Dorsino – Centro Sportivo S . Lorenzo in B. – Torcel – Andogno – Premione (DBB) – Stenico

The walk starts from the carpark near the church of Stenico (in the direction of Ragoli) in via Brigata Torino. Follow the signage B3.09 that in some points corresponds to route of the Saint Vili path. You will pass by S.Vigilio theatre along street “Alpi”, then turn right (2) and proceed uphill. At the crossing (3) you will rise rapidly on the right side, keep following the 300 sign. Then you will come to a little chapel, a junction with a wayside shrine with a cross and an isolated bell (5); here you have to turn right (not left towards Malga Plaz) and cycle for a bit on a mule track. After 200 m the cart-track joins a slightly better drive way [6] where you turn right still marginally climbing.You will reach a little pass between Stenico and Seo and keep easily climbing to Seo leaving behind a hairpin bend [8]. Pass by Seo on the main road, then turn right at the huge crossroads [9] in the village hwading towards Sclemo. Wnhen you arrive in Sclemo, take a left turn [10], pass by the main square on the main road, and turn left after 50 m. The unremarkable back street [11] joins a cart-track after 150 m taking you out of town and into a forest. The forest path offers you a sometimes steep downhill until it rejoins with the main road [13] near Tavodo. Turn left and take the ring road to Tavodo. At the junction between Tavodo and Dorsino [15] turn left and immediately after turn right [16] leaving the main road for the secondary road which will lead to Dorsino. Cross the stream Ambiez [17], and fight your way up to Dorsino. Cross the village and go straight ahead [19] while you are cycling under some remarkable old archways. These archways between the close-together houses are typical of this region. At the crossroad at the end of the village keep left  and face another steep climb leading to S.Lorenzo.. At the next junction [21] you keep right. You reach the striking turn around [22] at the sport centre after a steep ascent. Follow the signs straight ahead to “Moline di Deggia”. A tarmaced road takes you downhill. Here you will find yourself over the gorge of Limarò, in a place offering a stunning view on the deep canyon and on Mount Casale in the background. After a refreshing descent you reach a wayside shrine with a cross [25]. Here take the bumpy cart-track on the right. This is part of the “Dolomiti di Brenta Bike” round tour which you will follow until the village of Andogno. Stick to the “DBB” route, cross the main road [30/31], and reach Premione [33] on back roads. Keep following the “DBB” route which will take you back to the starting point in Stenico.
