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!

Author’s recommendation

The path length and height difference will be a source of satisfaction for already well-trained bikers.

Turn-by-turn directions

Leave the car at the Albio car park, at the intersection of Via Villa and Via el Bue in Vigolo Vattaro, continue on the asphalt road that goes up towards Malga Doss del Bue and at the first bend (1.5 km from the start) turn right on a dirt road that, having crossed the torrent Garzillone and passed a short downhill stretch in the woods, leads us along farm roads and forest roads to Maso Franzoi (5 km from the start). Go past Maso Franzoi and continue on flat ground for about 3.3 km until the steep climb that with two turns reaches the site of the former Forte Fornas. The road continues uphill, with an irregular pattern and a short downhill stretch, up to the Capitel del Verzer, 11.6 km from the start to continue with a more regular ascent which, passing some gullies, leads up to the maximum altitude reached by the itinerary (1135 m asl) at the crossing of the "Lavinella Grande" gully (13.2 km from the start). Then continue downhill to the Malga Doss del Bue (14.6 km from the start) and then always downhill but on a paved road to the starting point at the Albio car park, thus completing the 17.9 km route.
