Classical singletrail in Calestano (Parma, IT). First steep ascent to top of monte Groppo with dirty terrain, then great downhill on narrow singletrack on rocks in the first section (gret view over middle Baganza Valley) then in the wood the surface becomes dirtier till the end (open gate). Pay attention to a very steep section before entering the wood.
