    25 years ago there was a NATO base here. Today there are empty, abandoned buildings that create an interesting atmosphere. The NATO base is one of the places the bike shuttles go to.

    From here the trail paradise opens up. Use the shuttle up to here and then just enjoy.

    It's on the way anyway! And still is a place worth seeing.

    I can only warmly recommend it. Was there for two weeks in June '18. Sensational, one trail after the other. P.S. Flixbus offers a bus route from Stuttgart to Finale Ligure for little money. Incl. Bike transport. Departure at 9 p.m., arrival at 10 a.m.

    The abandoned Nato base on the Piano dei Corsi is a bizarre ruin and spreads in combination with the three wind generators a strange atmosphere on the mountaintop in the hinterland of Finale Ligure.

    The former military site is also the starting point for the bike shuttles, which freeriders drive to the starting point of downhill skiing.

    In the parking lot below the NATO base, the shuttle will drop off.
    Also for supergroppo you can cycle from here with the enduro.

    One of the most famous places for those who go cycling in Finale Ligure. It is possible to go back up both from the coastal area and from the area of Lake Osiglia or from Bormida via asphalt or dirt road. From there a multitude of fun descents.

    The former NATO base, abandoned by the Americans, is the starting point for some really great and varied trails.

    Although it was only used by the Americans in the Cold War (probably for espionage), it is called the NATO base.

    A brilliant starting point .... With a little skill you can compose a route of a good 20km. Most of it trail and minimal asphalt 😎

    Downhill after the final, mind you, with only 150 m ascent

    Not a really nice place, but an interesting one! The old NATO base serves as the starting point for several trails and offers a great view.
