Enduro Pegli

The route consists of a loop with start and end points in Vetta di Peglio and it offers breathtaking views of the sea and of the peaks reached by the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri track together with beautiful trails immersed in Mediterranean scrub.
The start of the route is on single-track; continue on gravel road (signposted E1) and, after a short portage, reaching Pian delle Monache, follow the trail that heads uphill to the right. At the end of the climb take the turn to the right: this is the start of the descent, very fast and exciting, with rock-strewn sections that require focus and precise riding skills. At the junction, continue along the trail to your left that takes you to a wide open space with an old house in ruin: from there the trail flows much better until you come to a few rocky passages to be approached with care. In no time you reach an incredible section; pay attention to the width of your handlebar when you pass throughout the tight gully! The trail offers some flow and after a switchback it takes you to a junction, where you keep left. The route soon reaches the impressive settings of Villa Doria (http://www.museidigenova.it/spip.php?rubrique35), house of the Naval Museum of Pegli. Keep going and you will soon be back to the starting point.
