Amazing trail with 1300hm of vertical drop from the top of the Spitzige Lun, a beautiful mountain located at the bottom of the Vinschgau valley. The climb and the descent are always exposed to south, which makes it rideable even in late fall.
The trail starts with a rocky alpine section at the top (with easy switchbacks) and then becomes a fast flowy run in to the spruces woods, with a top quality dirt compound
totally worth the climb

Access Info

From Malles head to Tarces, climb first on the road till the small town of Monteschino and then take the forest road till the meadowns on the top. From here take the trail (mostly pushing your bike) that traverses all the way up to the top cross

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

      Do NOT ride this trail. It’s very clearly marked as closed to bikers. If you’re still riding it you’re hurting the bike community...
