Inaugurated by Hans Rey... need any other descriptions?
From Mount Varadega to Grosio → 10,7 km ↓ 1.852 m
Follow the first section to the junction at Cross de l’Alp, the trail is rocky and bumpy, with a plenty of switchbacks. Keep following the trail and enter the wood. At this point the track is somehow flowing, but the presence of a lot of hairpins and switchbacks still reminds you why this route is called “Tornantissima” (literally full of hairpins, ndt.). Once arrived at the Baiton (sign - Step 3 – 1.450 m height) briefly follow a dirt road and soon turn right on a mule track that goes down to Grosio.

Access Info

from Grosio, ride (better if you take a shuttle that lift you) to Passo Mortirolo. Before "Albergo Passo del Mortirolo" you will find an off-road track on the left. Follow it till the road will start a big curve on the right. on the left, you should see a left turn Wink
