Destination

Dòlandes Water Centre - Canazei (1.465 m)

Turn-by-turn directions

Start from the centre of Canazei, the San Floriano Church on the right, and ride along the "Mortic" dirt road.  From "Pecol" starts the descent on a dirt road, demanding and quite technical, that leads onto the cycling route to Canazei.

Single Trail Scale STS: S2. An S2 difficulty rated trails will most likely contain larger roots and stones. The surface is frequently loose. Steps can be expected. Often there are narrow curves and the gradient can be up to 70% in places. The obstacles require body displacement to be successfully ridden. Readiness to break at all times and the ability to shift your centre of gravity are necessary techniques as well as the ability to regulate the attack of your breaking and permanent body tension.
