Bormio 2000 - Stazione partenza Funivia Bormio 2000
This is the other route spreading out over the area above the town of Bormio and is composed by more challenging rides than the previous itinerary n. 16. From La Rocca you go along an excellent single trail heading straight for the Valfurva while admiring the panorama over the mountains surrounding Santa Caterina.read more
On the way back to Bormio you run both on easy dirt roads and on a trail coming down diagonally with steady steep slope as well as bumpy and stony ground: you will have to use all of your technical riding ability.You begin climbing from Bormio 2000 (1943 m _ sign Way n. 543) on the dirt service road of the surrounding ski runs and reach the crossroads near the starting point of the chair lifts named La Rocca (2170 m _ sign Way n. 542). A road goes south to the right towards Bormio 3000, while our tour continues straight on eastwards always on an uphill dirt road up to the sign at 2220 meters above sea level, where the single trail begins (always sign Way n. 542), which will lead us to the Sobrettina mountains (2150 m), after enjoying the gentle uphill and downhill ride. From here on we change radically direction and turn northwest again on a dirt road (sign Way n. 543), we leave the road going down to Sobretta Bassa on the right and proceed through the flat forest up to the Baita Pozzo dell'Acqua (2070 m). The relaxing ride must not make us loose the beginning of the trail n. 522.1 on the right, which seems to be flowing and easy at first, but then becomes a challenging descent strongly sloping down while entering the thick wood. Once we get to the road going through La Poce, we follow the same signs of the route n. 16 and reach the town of Bormio.
