Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
The single trail between Lago Bianco on the Bernina Pass and Forcola di Livigno leaves impressive images in your mind. The view of the highest peaks in the Eastern Alps is overwhelming. In front of you are the Piz Bernina (highest mountain in the Eastern Alps at 4,048 m) and the Piz Palü (3,899 m) with their fascinating glaciers.
In recent years the trail has been continuously optimized without losing its high alpine character. You can drive the path in either direction. A few short passages still require you to push your bike.
In recent years, the number of gravel bikers who have found a good alternative to the pass road has increased on the route.

We rode the trail in both directions: from the Forcola Livigno to the Bernina Pass, we often pushed the bike, nice descent to the Bernina Pass. Then in the opposite direction: pushed a few pieces from the Bernina Pass to the highest point and then drove almost everything to Forcola Livigno. From a driving point of view, it is better for us from south (Bernina) to north (Forcola Livigno). However, the landscape is more rewarding from north to south because of the impressive view of the glacier world from Piz Palü and Co.
