The secondary roads and forest paths on which this route runs are perfect for beginners, and the short, moderate climbs under the Pra da Ri are a nice warm-up for the more expert riders. the Vallunga is part of the Puez-odle natural Park and is a cross-country skiing paradise in winter. the view on the Stevia and chedul Group is a good psychological warm-up for future tours and visits. At the entrance of the Vallunga, under the rocky face of the Ste- via, rests the residual ruins of the Wolkenstein castle, a medieval country palace, historically used to control the Passo Gardena.
