Pietra Ligure and the Maremola Valley offer a unique experience within the Finale Outdoor Region.
You'll wake up just steps from the sea and gaze naked eye at the trails of Monte Grosso and Ranzi, which are perfect for a quick ride or to return from a riding day on the endless descents that start at the Giogo di Giustenice. Each day offers different scenery.
Not to be missed is the climb to the summit of Mount Carmo at 1.389 meters above sea level, where the Karma Trail – a true icon of world riding – begins.
An e-bike paradise, with dedicated trails that are constantly evolving thanks to the work of the local administration and Pietra Ligure Outdoor.
