A long ride in mtb towards Forte Fornas and return through the woods of the northern slope of Vigolana da Vattaro along the "street of the soldiers".
Distance 25.3 km
The route mainly offers historical prerogatives, due to the presence of the former Forte Fornas, built by the Austro-Hungarians on the slopes of Vigolana in the late nineteenth century (1878 and 1880). Together with the twin Forte Brusafer, which guarded the other side of the valley, they had the task of controlling the road that goes up from Trento to the plateau. The itinerary also follows the route of an old military road (Strada dei Soldai) which has been specially recovered. Along the route, in addition to the historical peculiarities, there is also the exceptional refreshment point of the Malga Doss del Bue restaurant. The restaurant is located at 1020 meters above sea level and enjoys a spectacular view of the Brenta Dolomites with an extraordinary view of the Cima Tosa at sunset. A unique show to round off the ride with a tantalizing stop!
The path length and height difference will be a source of satisfaction for already well-trained bikers.
