This tour is well sign-posted, with the exception of a few crossings, and includes some nice and steep climbs, short hike-a-bike sections, but also a gnarly single-track (for a short section bikes are not allowed). Almost all mountain bikers are forced off the saddle to navigate a few parts of the Val di Roda and some of the descent to the Busa. The road to Passo Rolle is very busy in summer.

Directions

S.Martino di Castrozza, south of the Passo Rolle in the eastern trentino, is one of the jewels of the Dolomites. For thirty years the village has been part of the Paneveggio-Pale di San Martino nature Park. the evening sun paints the Pale a beautiful red colour. these trails are becoming increasingly popular with local mountain bikers; well sign-posted trails, bike hotels, shuttle services for bikes and even downhill trails in the San Martino Bike Arena make this a perfect mountain biking mecca.
