Safety information

  • The roads, trails, and ski runs indicated are often used in the opposite direction as well, so keep an eye out for hikers, other cyclists, and vehicles.
  • On trails and other narrow roadways, pay close attention to hikers and slow down or stop as seems appropriate under the circumstances.
  • Always were a helmet and never underestimate the difficulty of the trails.
  • Be careful when crossing wood bridges, as they can often be slippery.
  • Avoid skidding as this can damage both your tires and the road surface.

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.

Destination

Pinzolo-Prà Rodont lifts

Turn-by-turn directions

Take the lifts, first the Pinzolo-Prà Rodont gondola lift and then the Prà Rodont-Doss del Sabion chair lift, up to Doss del Sabion. Looking out to the east (over a panorama of the Brenta Dolomites), turn left down the Rododendro ski run (follow signs for 973). Follow route indicated past the first switchback to the right at Pass dal Gatt (do not continue on downhill run) and then back to the left, continuing along the ski run until you get to a fork.

Along this section, it is mandatory that you give the right of way to cyclists coming down the downhill run.

At the fork in the ski run, keep to the left (the Competition run) and continue for about 100 yards. Turn left at the sign and follow the trail, which will take you to a dirt road in about 1km (six-tenths of a mile) at the village of Stablei.

Along the trail, there will be a number of sections that only the most expert cyclists will be able to take on. Others will want to get off and push or carry their bikes.

Pay close attention to any hikers you may encounter, and slow down or stop as seems appropriate under the circumstances.

When you get to Stablei, turn left (following the 974 signs) and continue on to La Modannina, where the 975  itinerary will begin. Follow the trail towards Lake Valagola, which will take you down towards the forest where you will see a sign telling you to get off your bike ("bici a spinta"). Push or carry your bike for about 300 yards until you see another sign saying that it is safe to ride your bike again. Continue along the trail, which will feature some technical sections and will then take you alongside Lake Valagola.

Once you have passed the lake, turn right and either take the bridge or cross through the stream, continuing on in the direction of Malga Valagola. Pass the malga on the left and then follow the dirt road. Head down this road towards Val Brenta, and watch out for the bar across the road about 50 yards after the second bridge. Beyond this point, you may encounter cars coming up the road, so BE CAREFUL.

Continue along the dirt road to Plan da li Bori (an open area with fencing along the right), and here you will turn left. Continue across the next bridge, where the road becomes paved, and cross in front of Prà de la Casa.

Follow the paved road and cross the bridge. Continue under the gondola lift and, after about 50 yards, turn left and head down until you reach the Pinzolo-Campiglio Express connecting lift.

Cross the bridge and turn right. Continue on for about 1 km (six-tenths of a mile) and turn right at the crossroad. Cross the stream and then the bridge and follow the trail, which will take you up to another crossroads (Ponte di Cavradoss), where you will take the 969 itinerary through Mavignola, the villages of Ponte Canale and Tulot and on to Pinzolo.
