This MTB route leads slightly up through Mazzin to Muncion and Gardeccia

The route allows you riding slightly uphill on the left of the Avisio river, following the Marcialonga track up to the Mazzin village. From here the route goes southwards to the picturesque and panoramic village of Muncion, then shortly thereafter follows a curve to a shingle road towards Gardeccia. After a well deserved break in one of the many restaurants of the area, it goes back down to the valley, passing through the hamlet of Pera.

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the Church of San Nicolò in "Meida", take the streets Strada del Piz and Strada de Ciancoal. Cross the wide meadow until you reach the area "Piciocaa". Once you’ve left to the left the wood bridge and the Chapel to the right, continue along the cycle path (dirt road) along the Avisio River. Once reached the bridge that gives access to the hamlet of Mazzin, cross it and ascend Strèda de Chiavacia. Turn left in Strèda de Col da Chieve, then take a small dirt path, that leads to the hamlet of "Muncion". Once arrived in "Muncion", turn left and follow the road until you get to the area called "Soal". At the crossroad take the left path to ascend the ski slope and get quickly to "Gardeccia". From here ride along the path that follows the ski slope (under the Vajolet chair lifts) to return to Pera. Descend the street Strada Tita Piaz, cross the national road and take the street Troi G.F. Bernard, then turn left in Strada Jumela. Flank the Avisio River, pass the bridge on the right, and crossing again the "Ciancoal" plain pasture, you will reach the hamlet of "Meida".

Single Trail Scale STS: S1. On a trail marked S1 you will already have to deal with smaller obstacles such as flat roots and small stones. Very often you’ll find that the odd gulley or erosion damage is the reason for the raised difficulty rating. The surface may not always be firm. The gradient would have a maximum of 40%. Hairpin turns are not to be expected. On an S1 trail basic MTB technique and constant attention will be required. The trickier passages call for dosed breaking and body displacement. They should generally be ridden in a standing position. Obstacles can be rolled over.

Equipment

Helmet and protective gear (gloves, kneepads and elbow pads). Clothing adequate to follow high-mountain bike trails. Puncture repair kit and first aid kit.
