The route winds on dirt roads surrounded by spruce forests, within the Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino Natural Park. At times you can see the signs left by the storm Vaia (October 2018). The wood of the spruces that grow in these forests, also called resonance firs, is used for the construction of the soundboards of some musical instruments such as violins, guitars and pianos.

Author’s recommendation

Possibility to rent e-bikes at the Park's Visitor Center. Possibility to return to Paneveggio with Trentino Trasporti public buses. Check timetable before leaving.

Destination

Predazzo

Turn-by-turn directions

You start from the Visitor Center of the Paneveggio Park. Once you have passed the building, go down to the right following the signs for "Forra del Travignolo" and cross the first Tibetan bridge pushing your bike. In the first part the path runs along the banks of the Fortebuso dam. Continuing downhill, after the dam, you cycle through another Tibetan bridge, longer and higher than the previous one. We invite you to pay attention to the height of the Andreola lonely house: first, there is a short stretch on a path with some stones, immediately after, there is a stretch of steep concrete road. You reach then Sottosassa, where the Travignolo stream flows alongside the characteristic cliffs (climbing walls). Leaving the woods behind, you cycle the last stretch through piles of logs and meadows, until you reach the village of Predazzo.

The way back to Paneveggio takes place on the same route, or on the asphlated road. It is also possible to use public buses (check timetables before leaving).
