 One of the best trails in the area, completely natural no artificial drops berms.
The first bit is very technical slippery gravel and white dust over hard, very steep with lose and sharp rocks.

Then it gets into the woods (bosco della portella) after the spring water fountain, with steep and not so steep switchbacks but you can sometimes chose alternative lines which are very steep but grippy.
Terrain drains a lot so it can be antigrip in summer when it is very dry.

Only for enduro and freeriders, some exposure here and there but not overly dangerous.

Between june and september you can enjoy the cablecar, which gives you access to 1,000 meter drop descents.
