This trail provides the chance to follow all the higher parts of the valley almost up to the Rolle Pass, to then return down to Fiera do Primiero via San Martino and then the Val Canali valley.
Distance 45.8 km
The variety of landscape that one passes through fully represents what this territory has to offer with the Pale di S. Martino mountain range which tower over the thick pine woods, “masi” (rural mountain dwellings) Alpine dairy farms or “malga” and the high mountain pastures. There are different possibilities to return down to the main valley and shorten the route in such a way as one could also use more than one day to complete the course; this can be aided by using public transport to return up to the route.
In order to avoid situations that may endanger their own and other people’s safety, bikers are asked to be particularly careful in case of men at work in the wood and interrupted trail. For riding this tour in safety, you can contact the Primiero Bike School visiting the following website: www.primierobike.com
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and 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.
Go to the hamlet of Pieve where the Via Nova track starts at the 0.7km mark (wpt.5), follow this to the 3.5km mark to the Camp crossroads. Turn R uphill on tarmac road and follow this road towards Camp for about 1km, then at the fourth hairpin bend in the zone called Segnana, take a L (2nd junction L uphill wpt.7), firstly on tarmac and then R along a path (Rampikissima route wpt.8), up to where you join the Camp road again and for a short way go downhill crossing the junction with the Bedolè Basso forestry track at the 6km mark (wpt.10). Follow this road until the zone called “Dismoni” at the 13.5km mark (1st return route to valley). At the junction climb uphill to the R, first on dirt road then turn L and climb up towards Crel, go straight over the junction (wpt.13) until you reach the access road to Malga Crel farm. Continue on a slightly uphill gradient in the direction towards S. Martino, after going downhill to the 19.3km mark, turn L (2nd return route via S. Martino), and climb uphill in the direction of Tognola. After about 1km branch R onto the forestry track, continue until joining the tarmac road that goes up to Malga Ces. After 300m turn R at the junction onto the new forestry track “Orti Forestale” that you follow to the 23.3km mark. Continue downhill along the path to Malga Fosse di Sotto farm (not very easy to cycle along), then downhill on the old ski-run to S. Martino village (3rd return route to main valley), where from junction by the bridge over the Cismon Torrent (“Drei Tannen”) follow the road Via Passo Rolle (one-way), using the part of the road reserved for pedestrians to avoid traffic. (Cross the SS.50 main road at Da Meto restaurant). Immediately after the restaurant turn R uphill and take the forestry track to the Val Roda valley up to the 28.3km mark where the track intersects with the bridle path N°724. After a while the mule track rejoins the forestry track which you follow to the Val della Vechia valley; keep to the R here on the path for about 1km and then return to the dirt road. At the 32.3 km mark (wpt.34 “Ronzi” junction), go downhill on the forestry track to the Prati Ronzi meadows, then take the tarmac road towards Petina. At the 35.5km mark “crossroads for Petina” (4th route down to the main valley), continue along the tarmac road towards Strine, Poline and Piereni. When you get to the zone called Piereni, go R downhill for about 500m being careful not to miss the R at the crossroads for the forestry road “Buse Tonadico” (wpt.41) which you follow to the end where on the R you join a path which firstly seems flat then is steep down to the S. Vittore road, always staying to the right and slightly uphill. Downhill into Tonadico on tarmac road, when you reach the centre of the village take a L, being careful on the steep descent which takes you to the crossing over the main road to the Cereda pass, crossing the bridge near to the Lanterna Verde, (wpt.48) follow the route down along the Canali Torrent to Fiera di Primiero.
