A mountain biking adventure that can be tackled by inexperienced riders. Variant of the 756. San Udalrico - Tour.

Signage: 756a. Variante San Siro

The Passo Udalrico tour, which is not overly long, can be extended by just under 9 km towards San Siro chapel. The longer section at the beginning is especially interesting, where you can glide along very easily on narrow tracks and bridle paths without much climbing or descending.

Safety guidelines

ITRS - International Trail Rating System

The ITRS is an objective way to assess trails and routes from a biker’s perspective, evaluating four aspects:

  • Technical Difficulty: riding skill level needed
  • Endurance: combined effect of length, uphill and downhill
  • Wilderness: amount of planning required based on mobile phone reception, rescue options, water supply and wildlife
  • Exposure: consequences of a fall

Discover more about the ITRS system and check the classification of this tour in the photo gallery.

Directions

The starting point of the route is in Trebi. Coming north from Dro you will find the first sign for route 753 to your right, at the forked road. However, starting from the south of the lake, continue south for a few dozen meters where you should take the first road on your left. Here you will quickly find the route signage which guides you uphill, through the locality of Trebi. Continue to climb on the main road, where the gradient is constant at around 10%. Quickly gaining altitude, you’ll have the possibility to admire the remarkable views of Lake Cavedine and the Sarca Valley.

A little after you have passed over the hill-top, follow a wide curve round to the right. Leave the asphalt road, and take the archeological gravel road, continuing to follow the directions for route 753. All of the turnings are well indicated and the route continues with undulating terrain until the locality of San Siro. Once again riding on asphalt, keep left and start to descend, following the main road - as indicated by the signage.

At the fourth hairpin bend, take the gravel road on the left that brings you back to Lake Cavedine. After approximately 100 meters, the terrain returns to asphalt. Continue to follow the road downhill toward the lake, where you will rapidly meet its tributary.

Turn left here and follow the road that runs along the water course to the south, where for a short time you will arrive at the lake itself. Continue straight on to find the route starting point.

Cavedine is connected by the intercity bus lines (204, 205). For up-to-the-minute information on timetables and routes

Where to park
