Points of interest along this bike trail

A nice ascent is waiting for you from Prada to Location Due Pozze along which you will find Alm Traure and its typical
menu.

Tour description

Starting from Prada Alta parking lot (ex chair lift start) head south on the tarmac road. Go beyond Hotel al Cacciatore on the right, just after a short ascent at 921m, and turn left on a hairpin bend starting the ascent which leads you to Location Due Pozze. Follow the small tarmac road going up for 4.3km to Due Pozze’s parking lot. The ascent is now over.

Take the off-road track on your left going down to Prada, across the stream, and at the crossroad next to it take a right and cross the path on the field leading you smoothly down.

Keep on the main road and once you go into the wood take a left, descending along a water channel.The ground becomes a bit loose and sloped until you reach tarmac again in Località Val di Sacco. Go down on the left side and take a right at the crossroad to reach the main road. Turning right you will end up at the starting point, the parking lot of Prada Alta.

Variant

The track cannot be done conversely.

If you need to make it longer you can start from San Zeno di Montagna, which means 7.5 km more with 340m drop both ways up and down.

Our suggestions

  • On hot sunny days better to start early in the morning to avoid doing the ascent in the full sun.
  • Always bring some water to drink. Apart from Alm Traure there are no other points to find some.
