Fascinating route, it allows you to cross two suggestive Tibetan bridges from which you can see the sparkling waterfalls of the Travignolo stream.

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.

Destination

Predazzo

Turn-by-turn directions

The trail runs mainly on dirt roads surrounded by fir trees forests. It starts from the Visitor Center of the Paneveggio Natural Park, then it goes on to the first suspended Tibetan bridge on the Travignolo creek, where you have to walk your bike to cross it. The trail then continues along the banks of the Fortebuso dam. Afterwards, you ride across another suspended bridge, longer and higher than the previous one. At the Andreola area, you have to push your bike for a short stretch of trail and then you will reach the area of Sottosassa, with its characteristic cliffs well-known to climbers.
