Bormio Pedemontana della Reit

Bormio Parcheggio Pravasivo - Sant'Antonio Valfurva

The Pedemontana road i.e. a road running at the foot of the mountains starts sloping gently uphill and then turns into an almost totally flat trail while passing through the depths of the larch wood dominating the whole Bormio valley. After riding through Uzza valley, the second part of this route stretches out also on the first part of the military dirt road of the Ables, which gradually rises with long sidetracks and wide switchbacks among thin woods allowing us to catch a glimpse of the dominating ridges as well as of the mountains of Valfurva.

On this alternative way you can decide to free your desire to climb over 2000 meters above sea level. The tour we suggest here continues instead among the hamlets of Madonna dei Monti to the mouth of Val Zebru' and finally to the valley bottom quickly riding on a dirt road.You start from the car park in Pravasivo 1400 m following the sign to Pramezzano and Uzza on the dirt road n. 533. You ride on a long track through the wood until you meet some diversions on your right, which could allow you to descend directly to Bormio sign Way n. 538 and Way n. 511. We find instead on a panoramic clearing with a wooden construction 1530 m and take the way n. 511 on the left proceeding eastwards to Casina Alta. We leave soon another diversion on the right and climb gently uphill the length of Uzza valley to the North. We come out of the wood underneath the rocky faces of the Cresta di Reit hanging over us. With a ford at first and then through a bridge we cross the brooks of two valleys, and soon after a brief uphill sprint we turn to the left into the forest and find a diversion. Then we meet the Military Road of the Ables by a wide hairpin provided with notice board sign Way n. 531 1580 m. We climb on the dirt road uphill to Ortagio 1620 m and just past the second curve we take the road on our right sign Way n. 546 leading firstly to Plazzanecco 1690 m, then to Cadalberto sign Way n. 547 and finally to the car park in Fantelle 1600 m. The next trail gets to the Ponte delle Tre Croci 1610 m, which represents the gateway to Val Zebru'. We proceed on the unpaved byway to the right sign Way n. 527, cycle up to Pradaccio 1658 m and find a junction past the mountain huts: we descend to the right again sign Way n. 567 and reach San Gottardo and Sant'Antonio Valfurva. At the diversion to Plazzanecco you can choose instead to continue on the uphill military road, turn right at the fourth switchbacks, reach the panoramic Alp Solaz di Sopra and descend to Fantelle on a steep and challenging trail.
