      Betasso is a popular trail system close to town. It gets a lot of traffic from both hikers and mountain bikers alike. The trails are one direction, but that direction changes and is provided on signs. The trails are marked as "bidirectional" and the Trailforks direction detection does not show any directional bias because the direction changes.

      The trail system starts out with a stiff climb up to rolling trails through pine trees and some open spaces. Expect flowing single track that is mostly pretty easy, with some small embedded rocks and rooty areas, and few stiff pitches
