ITALIANO: sentiero da guidare molto con il corpo, con caratteristiche variabili, veloce in alcuni tratti. La prima parte presenta due "rampette" impegnative da superare sui pedali, dopo di chè il sentiero si allarga tagliando la costa della montagna fino ad una S cavatappi tutta da studiare che immette su un passaggio con sassi. Si acquista velocità fino ad un'altra S (molto meno impegnativa) che immette su un tratto tra i faggi che ci fa riposare le braccia. Svolta a sinistra, il sentiero prosegue in contro pendenza fino ad una curva a sinistra che ci immette su un passaggio tra gli alberi che curva secco a sinistra e ci collega al sentiero CAI che "muore" sulla strada carrabile

ENGLISH: nice track with different features and somewhat pretty fast. First part of the trail has 2 "climbs" that you might take off saddle. Then the trail become wider.

Access Info

ITALIANO: Da Poggio Sant'Elsa (arrivo della bidonvia) dirigersi verso la strada carrabile che torna a valle e, superata la sbarra di ferro, al tornante sinistrorso seguire la strada andando dritti.
la strada scende un po' per poi spianare fino ad una vecchia frana di sassi. Qui inizia il sentiero che, più a valle, si ricongiungerà con la strada carrabile prima di immettersi sullo "smile trail", una vecchia traccia realizzata in occasione del Insubria Bike Festival 2010 o proseguire fino all'incrocio con la strada tagliafuoco in direzione Cittiglio (consigliata).
Ideale per giri ad anello con e-bike partendo dal ristorante "la Gigliola" in loc. Casere per risalire lungo la carrabile e sfruttare il sentiero in discesa (o salita, vedete voi).

ENGLISH: from top of the cable car, follow the directions that heads to Laveno and, passed an iron bar, go straight. Here the road starts losing a bit and, rrived to an old rocks "landslide", it starts the trail. Enjoy the ride till you will meet the mountain road again. Here starts the "smile trail" an old trace designed for a local bike event. You can follow it or take the fire-break mountain road to Cittiglio (suggested).

      reporter Overall good conditions. Some old branches make it just a bit "dirty". Two small trees down across trail might slow down your ride; branches...
