Quick ride, if you don't have much time. Starting from Ceriale, in front of TrekUpBike (bikeshop). You cross 4 towns on the main road to warm your legs. When you reach Pietra Ligure, you go in the hinterland and start climbing. Pedaling up till Madonna della Guardia. Your downhill section starts here. Kill Bill, it's a rollercoaster, nice funny trail. And then Madonna della Guardia (one of the famous trails of Finale Outdoor resort) a rocky trail, with sections really fast. Good for training. If you have more time there are many trails to ride. Otherwise you pedal back to the shop. It requires a good level.

Dopo il cancello ci sono delle piante cadute. Si riesce a passare lo stesso sulla sinistra. Poi dopo tutto ok

Watch out - the trail shown on the Trailforks map is NOT Madonna della Guardia! The start of the actual MDG trail is a couple hundred meters north, right next to the end of Kill Bill 2.

Mostly rideable, though the steep sections have areas of loose rock that make things a little trickier. The route is mostly in shade which helps with the heat. Can be joined from rollercoaster at various points.

Trail Kill Bill 1
Can‘t understand why it‘s rated blue as most of it is super steep and gnarly. I would say its at least black! Maybe also hasn‘t been maintained for a while
