Latemar MTB circular tour

Thanks to the cable cars, cycling around the mighty Latemar massif is possible also for not that experienced mountain bikers. The landscape is just great and the trails are rewarding.

We start this tour at the valley station of the Latemar Cable Car in Predazzo which takes us up to the Baita Gardoné mountain hut. By chairlift we continue to the Passo Feudo and save 1,100 m of altitude difference uphill. The single track no. 521 leads us to the Malga Zischg and Rif. Ganischgeralm mountain huts above the Passo di Pampeago. The downhill trail via the Malga Epircher Laner mountain hut to Obereggen is asphalted - the alternative way follows the gravel path no. 9.

From Obereggen the forest paths no. 9 and 8 (gravel road) lead slightly uphill via the Bewaller Farm to the famous Lago di Carezza lake (Karersee). The end of the uphill section is located 4 km further on the Passo di Costalunga (Karerpass) between the Catinaccio and the Latemar massifs - a short section follows the asphalt pass road at the junction with the Passo Nigra road.

Right past the pass the path no. 519 branches off on the right and takes us via the Malga Secine mountain hut to Moena. A gravelled downhill section through the forests at the eastern slope of Mt. Latemar lies in front of us. Past the Malga Runcac mountain hut we reach the village in the Val di Fassa valley, located 550 metres lower than the hut. The cycle track following the course of the Rio Avisio stream proceeds slightly downhill and takes us back to our starting point in Predazzo.
