Easy but exciting route on the forest roads of Alpe Cermis. Check the brakes carefully as you get off the gondola lift, more than 15 km of fun descent await you!

The itinerary, also suitable for beginners, has a continuous and gradual downward development, but never steep. After the first stretch entirely in the woods, the panorama opens generously over Val di Fiemme near the Salanzada pasture. The only ups and downs that follow, lead to the last stretch of descent to the final surprise: the suggestive waterfall, a jump of about 15 meters, whose microparticles of water suspended in the air give refreshment on hot summer days.

It is also possible to start with the cable car from Cavalese.

Safety information


Along all routes, always pay attention to other people and vehicles coming from both directions. MTB routes are not for bikers only.

After windstorm Vaia in October 2018, forest roads are used also by heavy vehicles to transport wood.

When riding on streets, bikers have to respect the traffic code just like drivers.



  1. Plan your ride
  2. Share the trail with other users
  3. Yield right of way to hikers
  4. Let your speed be determined by your experience
  5. Ride slowly on crowded trails, overtake with politeness and respect
  6. Cycle only on authorized and open trails
  7. Avoid muddy trails in order not to damage them further
  8. Respect nature, plants, animals and the trail
  9. Do not frighten animals
  10. Take your rubbish home with you
  11. Respect public and private property
  12. Always be selfsufficient
  13. Do not cycle solo in remote areas
  14. Take back home only good pics



Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and it is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Valley lifts-station of Alpe Cermis

Turn-by-turn directions

From the valley lifts-station of Alpe Cermis (open from Mid-June to Mid-September) take the two gondolas to reach 2.000 m of altitude.

This is where the dirt road with wide curves called “Via del Bosco” starts, leading down to Doss dei Laresi at 1.200 m. The road on the left descends to the meadows of Salanzada. The trail continues slightly uphill to the area called “Tabià”, from where the descent to the amazing waterfall of Cavalese begins.

Return to the starting point along the cycle route.

Transport of bicycles on cablecar € 5,00.

Public transport

Cavalese can be reached by Trentino Trasporti buses from all the villages of Val di Fiemme.

By road

Once in the center of Cavalese, follow the signs for Funivie Alpe Cermis. The second departure station is located on the valley floor road, between the village of Masi di Cavalese and the waterfall. From here, take the cable car that takes you to an altitude of 2,000 meters.


Numerous car parks are available both at the start of the lifts in Cavalese and at the valley station.

È possibile fare la salita in MTB senza impianto?

In estate sì, fino a Pasqua no, perché alcuni tratti della strada sono piste da sci.

Tour facile, che si sviluppa su strade sterrate forestali ottimamente mantenute, ed è quindi adatto anche alle persone meno pratiche. Anzi, potrebbe addirittura risultare monotono ai biker più esperti.

Raggiunta la cime del Cermis, il panorama ricambia certamente della fatica (soprattutto l'ultimo km su tracce cementate). Partendo dal parcheggio di fondovalle la sola andata è di 15 Km con ca. 1350 m di dislivello. Poi però è tutta discesa!
