Livigno, Alpe Trela, Val Alpisella
Livigno Pemont Park 4 - Livigno Pemont Park 4
This is the third of the famous round routes crossing the wonderful valleys from Livigno, to Cancano and Valdidentro. We have to ride on two relentless climbs. The reward is a suggestive landscape of unspoilt nature. At the top of the first hill of Val Trela, the enchanting mountain pastures suddenly appear to us stretching out at the junction of four valleys.read more
Then we descend into the obscure Val Pettini, reach the Cancano lakes and start the nice climb uphill the length of Valle Alpisella on a dirt road through a conifer wood accompanied by the sight of the mountains of the Ortles group, which we soon leave behind us. As soon as we get to the source of Adda River and reach the pass, we are immediately thrown into a high mountain environment, among gravel, rocks and thin pastures. The last descent to Livigno is really spectacular. The route can be run backwards too and most of all you can create other alternative ways following the routes n. 25-26-27.You start from the car park n. 4 in the hamlet of Pemont (1807 m) following the dirt road n. 138 along the lake to the crossroads before the Ponte delle Capre. Here you turn right on the uphill trail through the wood (sign Way n. 136) into Valle del Torto and reach the hamlet of Trepalle, after descending on the left and crossing the Ponte da li Vaca(1852 m). You proceed to your left on the orographic right side and always on the Way n. 136 into Val Pila and then you reach the Passo di Val Trela with toil (2295 m). The following descent heads for the pleasant Alpe Trela (2165 m). We cross the plain towards north (sign Way n. 130) and turn into the dirt road downhill the length of the steep Val Pettini to the Lago di San Giacomo (1953 m). After riding alongside its shores towards Fraele (sign Way n. 199), we get to the diversion to the source of Adda River in Val Alpisella. The following climb to the Pass of the same name (2290 m) and the downhill to Livigno are on a wide unpaved byway indicated with sign n. 138.
