This is not Blue for sure. Barely ridable...80% pushing the bike up and walking down on foot...

 Absolutely. Had a plan to come back and ride the end in other way, but no, thanks...

 Okay, actually I really like technical and rocky trails but this one feels like you're urging wheels straightly to the slaughterhouse..
50% of the trail is barely rideable unless you are some sort of a freaking bikewizard und the rest of the time you're living in constant fear of crashing your backwheel or some other part of your insanely overpriced rig..

So if you plan on spending a day on riding this trail, I would recommend to go somewhere else - even if the view and everything else is truly amazing on this...
But this trail just isn't ment to be ridden on a bicycle..

 i'm sorry for your "trekking bike"...but the trail is a "tipical ligurian" trail, not harder of many other famous trails...with a proper bike (full) and tech it's a medium difficult.
thank you

 I think you basically made two mistakes:
1) we Austrians are to direct which makes you appear rude, especially as we should appreciate that barolo publishes such tracks
2) you had the wrong bike, I rode it today on a Specialized Enduro Evo (170mm) and it was fun. I would want to ride it on a XC bike though and I agree it is a bit underrated.

Thanks Barolo - nice track for a afternoon ride Wink

 This is not Blue for sure. Barely ridable...80% pushing the bike up and walking down on foot... I have a full, maybe not very experienced but can handle most trails, but this one is kind of mistake... It's just for pedestrians not bikes. Austrians are right...waste of time but views are great.
