Monte Piana & Monte Piano – Epische Trail-Momente in den Dolomiten
Freeride Inc. Austria went mountain biking.
November 8, 2019
A tour steeped in history in the middle of the Dolomites - recommended in autumn, as driving is prohibited uphill. When the hut keeper comes, you have to get off your bike and push for a moment, otherwise the dolce vita is over! (That is meant seriously: The hut keeper is not to be trifled with).Then you can expect an amazingly great crossing and the descent over the Pioniersteig. The trenches can still be found above - extreme historical impressions. But be careful: you absolutely have to be free from giddiness and have alpine experience, because the descent is very, very steep and exposed. The trail is really impressive considering why it was built earlier. Be careful, because there are a lot of exposed areas and also a few areas that are secured with climbing ropes.

An alternative descent (in total about half a step easier) is from the Forcella Castrati down the Val Castrati on the 111er Kriegssteig. The problem with the taxi service to the hut and the associated ban on biking is also there, of course, whereby you don't get much (er) attention when driving up the Forcella Bassa (from Lake Antorno) ....

Yes, the jeep driveway can only be made at half past five in the morning. We were there on October 3rd in 2019, I've never seen such militant road protectors, never, one of the jeep drivers is probably the problem here, the other jeep driver was practically normal. So better the other way up. I will definitely come back here 👍
