The route, which is rather shady on the lower section, runs entirely along a forestry road, which is partly paved and partly gravel (follows Mountain Bike route no. 66, in reverse). This variant is ideal for those who want to avoid steep and uneven trails and it can also be walked with pushchairs suitable for dirt and gravel.Departing from Alpe Foppa, you follow the directions for Piano di Mora and, after about an hour, you reach the intermediate station at 1,127m a.s.l. The well-stocked snack bar of the adventure park Monte Tamaro is the ideal place for a little break. You can then continue for about an hour and a half on a forestry road until Rivera.

For those who prefer to take a more direct and challenging path, we recommend this one.

Turn-by-turn directions

Attention: the official signs indicate the most direct path, which deviates from the forestry road in several places. When in doubt, we recommend you consult the map (which can be printed from our website or obtained from our sales points and stations) and follow the signs for Mountain Bike route no. 66, in the opposite direction.
