A demanding and varied high-altitude route on the side of the Predaia.The Predaia Superbike is organised on this circuit once a year. However, athletes miss out on the beautiful landscapes and views seen from the route which other, more leisurely bikers enjoy.

This tour features all the traits that will make a biker happy: flow trails across peaceful pine forests, crystal-clear lakes, high-altitude climbs at the foot of Roen mountain, views across the Brenta Dolomites and a neverending succession of exciting trails! While this trail takes centre stage once a year of the MTB scene in Trentino, it’s also of interest to non-competitive bikers for the variety of routes it offers: descend from Samarano into the pine forest until you reach the Coredo and Tavon lakes, before reaching a long and somewhat steep forest path in the shade of the lush Rio Verdes valley until you reach the spacious meadows stretching out below the Roen mountain. The coveted route is nothing other than a succession of single trails leading to Smarano, cutting through the village of Vervò.

Author’s recommendation

Small detours will take you to the Malga Nuova in Coredo, the Malga Rodeza and the Todes Ci Hut. The route itself features the Predaia Solarium and the Sores hut.

Turn-by-turn directions

Smarano is your traditional starting point but you could also leave from any of the villages in the Predaia province.

From Smarano head to the sport grounds in Pineta. The route wends its way across forest paths, descending on hiking trail 12 to the Tavon lake. Keep to the trail and the bridle track until you reach Coredo lake. Continue your leisurely ride along the lake’s shore, heading to the northern shore of Tavon lake. Keep to the trail on the western side, heading south, to then embark on the last forest path. It’s extremely steep and will take you to a statue of the Virgin Mary on the side of the Pineta di Coredo mountain.

On the ridge of the Dossi mountain, continue on the course on a pleasant ride towards Tavon; follow the route east towards the hermitage. The Rio Verdès valley is the perfect spot to take a breather in the shade so you can decide whether to visit the hermitage just a stone’s throw away. If you wish to continue, climb following the Verdès stream.

Prepare yourself for two demanding climbs. The path crosses to the other side of the valley (14.4 km) and continues climbing, cutting across the Toc Valley. The path at 15.8 km will lead onto the forest path heading o the Coredo Alp; however, take a right, valley-bound, towards ‘Sette Larici’. At 17.9 km the path takes a turn south at a fork and continues climbing until 22.4 km. This is the Val de la Lama, and you’ll take a right northbound towards the Predaia meadow. All of a sudden, the shaded forest will stop and you can enjoy the view across the summer pastures and the stunning mountainous landscape.

A well-deserved reward for all bikers who faced demanding climbs and descent and who can now enjoy a unique view. On the side of the plateau of the Predaia, descent to the Solarium Predaia restaurant where you’ll meet the Pass path. Keep to the road until you reach the Sores hut (tree top adventure trail), which will open up to another trail leading to Vervò.

Return to the starting point by following the signs of the bike path of Predaia, until Sfruz and then to Smarano.

Getting there

Exit motorway A22 at Trento Nord and follow the SS43 towards Val di Non and Val di Sole. In dermulo turn right and take the SS43dir towards Bolzano. After 1 km turn right again onto the SP7 to Coredo first and from there follow the signs for the next village called Smarano.

Parking

All the parking spaces in the village of Smarano are free.

Molto deludente dal punto di vista escursionistico il tracciato si sviluppa avvitandosi su se stesso..
