Mountain Bike - Monte Fertazza (Alleghe)

Difficultydifficult Length14,98 km

Start off from Alleghe taking the cable lift to Piani di Pezzè and then the  new 8 seater cable car that takes us up to scenic Col dei Baldi (1915 m). Once off the lift and facing South we take the right on the first downhill for about 550 m to the junction for Col Fioret, from here we continue left towards Prà della Costa from where we go up for 100 m. of altitude change over 1,2 km until we arrive after a hard climb to the village of Costa del Conte (1933 m). From here we continue in descent on a rocky and sometimes slippery surface for 750 m towards the chalet rifugio Fertazza , we pass this pedalling for another 100 m heading towards the lift that will take us to Belvedere di Fertazza, where we find the chalet with the same name. Leaving the lift behind us we take the right towards Cima Fertazza  (2099 m) following the signs marking trail no. 566 in the direction of  Col di Davagnin (1922 m) covering a challenging stretch of about 1300 m. downhill between trail and single track and continue downwards with caution, considering the almost 28% incline and a few tracts that are definitely technical with slippery surfaces, continuing for another 1300 m with a negative incline of- 350 m to arrive in the village of Ru delle Sorize (1572 m). We are at the final stage towards the lake; we take a tough downhill path to the hamlet of Piniè, where we find asphalt, and then we follow the path and pass Col di Fontana to land in the village of Vallazza, a stretch about 3600 m long with an altitude change of  -625 m and only 24 m of climb for a median gradient of 17,5%. Now we are on the outskirts of Alleghe, another 500 m to get to the lake shore boardwalk, the last 500 metres we can pedal enjoying the view of the calm green waters of the lake.
