ITA: Parte alta della bellissima discesa dalla Baita La Suche, tipico sentiero alpino in cui si alternano drop, rocce (più o meno smosse), radici, tornanti e larghezze spesso ridotte. Discesa non particolarmente difficile, la bassa velocità di percorrenza aiuta ma è richiesto comunque un buon controllo del mezzo. Sentiero molto trafficato in estate. Prestate attenzione.

ENG: Upper part of a beautiful trail that starts from La Suche Hut. Typical alpine trail with narrow hairpins, rocks and lots of roots. Not particularly challenging it still requires good handling and confidence due to the narrow path and the numerous drops and stairs. Gets really crowded in the summer.

Access Info

ITA: Partenza dalla Baita La Suche, raggiungibile risalendo in ebike (pedalabilità 90% circa) o con portage, altrimenti bisogna sfruttare gli altri sentieri della zona per raggiungere la baita "da dietro".

ENG: Starts from La Suche Hut. Portage or ebike required.

Disclaimer

This trail is shared with hikers (quite crowded during peak season) so please ride carefully. Trail condiviso con escursionisti, rispettate gli altri e date la precedenza.
