Trail Valle Fredda Details

apline Downhill that has its beauty in the landscape. First part is a high passage on the ridge of Le Chiuse, that overlooks the Campo Imperatore ski area on the left and the L'Aquila valley on the right. The trial is horizontal till under the M.Scindarella (mt 2233), then it drops to the crossing with Fossa di Paganica area and the saddle with M.Cristo (1928 mt). The trail uses the large dirt road in Valle Fredda to reach Hotel Nido dell'Aquila and then Fonte Cerreto. Valle Fredda is rectilinear, closed by Colle Finavera and Scindarella, and caution has to be used to avoid excessive speed as several large rocks are presents.

 Hello, I've just ridden this trail yesterday and unfortunately I didn't managed to complete my way down due to long section of fallen trees stretched over the valley in the lower part od the trail. Finally I had no choice but climb back about 500 altitude metres uphill with the bike on my back to the saddle to find another way down. Quite exhausting and dangerous alpine adventure!

 Avalanches... this summer the trail should be clear.
You can find your way through the trees, it happened to me a few times.

The trail is really fun, it starts from monte Scindarella where the chair lift ends, then it is a few up and downs until the CAI trail starts properly and then it continues into the canyon.

Watch out to find your way to the second part of the trail. There also might be snow even at the beginning of the summer there.
If you are lost follow the wide road that ends into the trail, sometimes the grass covers everything and the trail is not maintained.

Then when you are on the trail you can let go more and more, very rocky very wide environment, wild experience.

 trail ancora interrotto a causa della valanga di 2 anni fa che ha trascinato innumerevoli tronchi spezzati di alberi. Il sentiero non รจ stato ancora ripristinato. Peccato.
