Lagazuoi - 5 Torri - Giau: Riding Through History and Nature


@g.pompanin

The Lagazuoi - 5 Torri - Giau area is very famous in the Dolomites and  highly popular with hikers and mtb lovers alike. The wonderful mountainscape, one of the most beautiful in the Dolomites can’t but amaze mountain lovers while climbing up or venturing down technical trails.
In this area, mountain bike trails run across the WW1 Open-air Museum rich in great historical highlights. The itinerary continues along Via del Ferro (the iron road) as far as Andraz Castle, one of the most  ancient castles in the Dolomites.A veritable journey through history and nature.
Some of the most beautiful MTB trails, such as 5 Torri Freeride,   Bike trail Averau,   and Bike Trail Super Panorama start from the top station of the bike-accessible 5-Torri and Fedare chairlifts.

Mountain Biking in Misurina around Lakes and Mountain Farms.

In Misurina, the Cold de Varda chairlift is bike accessible. From the namesake mountain inn, ride along the dirt road or down the trails winding through the forest to reach Misurina and d’Antorno lakes.

Another option is the Casera Maraia trail, which alternates demanding stretches to paved sections. Enjoy the awe-inspiring views while reaching the bike path leading to Lake Misurina.

Looking for new  exciting challenges? If you are a MTB expert, you may venture along more demanding trails like the one that connects Rifugio Col de Varda to Rifugio Città di Carpi or even attempt  the legendary road up to the Tre Cime di Lavaredo.  Continue as far as Rifugio Auronzo and then return to the bottom station of the chairlift.

Auronzo: High-altitude Mountain Biking


@trecimebike

In Auronzo, Mt Agudo lifts are bike-accessible. If you feel like an adrenaline experience, from the mountain inn at 1534 m, challenge your skills riding down the scenic trail with amazing views of Tre Cime di Lavaredo and the Auronzo Dolomites.  The highly technical descent runs by the Fun Bob rail and then levels up on a more gentle slope that allows you to  catch your breath and fully enjoy the ride.

Experienced MTB lovers: this is for you! Take the chairlift up to Mt Agudo, descend as far as the start of the Fun Bob rail (top station of the Taiarezza-Malon chairlift) and descend along the trail towards Val Da Rin. When you reach a fork - the only one you meet on the way - you may either turn left to return to Auronzo (easy option) or continue to the right as far as “Pian dei Buoi” and the namesake Rifugio. The latter itinerary is certainly longer and more demanding (medium difficulty) and can be further combined with the trail leading to Rifugio Ciaredo. The return is along the same way.
