NEW from June 2015: The Bike Trail Carezza
Not far from Bozen / Bolzano – to be exact, in the South Tyrolean Dolomites of the Eggental Valley – great things are coming. Where the new gondola aerial lift starts in the center of the village of Welschnofen / Nova Levante and takes passengers to the foot of the UNESCO Nature Heritage Site of the Rose Garden, an attractive flow trail is being established for bikers of every stripe. The trail begins amidst the idyllic scenery under the Frommer Alm and leads through the small, beautiful Niger Valley and to the valley station of the Welschnofen gondola aerial lift. Along a stretch of about 4.4 km, the flow trail repeatedly runs parallel to a brook, winds its way through forests, and crosses meadows. With its steep turns and high banked curves, small bridges and jumps as well as northshores, the trail will offer biking enthusiasts real excitement. To make the flow trail even more interesting, there will be smaller and larger jumps, drops, and tables.
The trail is scheduled to open in late-May of 2015.
With the inauguration of this trail, the already very attractive mountainbike region of Eggen Valley in the Rose Garden and Latemar of the Dolomites gains yet another fascinating attraction.
The popular "Latemar Round" is thus enriched by an additional flowing – a must for passionate tour bikers and endure fans.
Length: approx. 4.4 km
Altitude differential: 500 meters
Average grade: approx. 11 % , ideal for a flow trail
Length of the northshores: up to 70 m
Banked curves and turns: more than 45 in number
Jumps: Up to 20 in the form of tables, jumps, or drops
Start: With the Welschnofen gondola aerial lift, from the center of Welschnofen to the Frommer Alm; the trail begins there.
The "Latemar Super Trail" is one of the top tours of the region - in any case for fit bikers with good handling skills.
A scenic and technically very rewarding round with a high proportion on trails. The trail is predominantly composite with nature trails and only partially optimized for biking. Despite the 4 time use of the cable cars the trail should not be underestimated.
Length: about 32,8 miles
Duration: 5 hours
