In the second adventure in Trentino he gets on a mountain bike for a ride around the Castellaz. In the protected natural area of the Paneveggio Pale di San Martino Natural Park, you cycle through the beautiful Val Venegia on well-practicable hiking trails. Over 500 different plant species are found here and the mountain views are simply breathtaking.The starting point of the tour is located in a small parking lot along the Provincial Road 81 which crosses the nature reserve. From here the path heads east through the Val Venegia and follows the course of the Travignolo stream which becomes increasingly narrow with increasing altitude, and then disappears completely into the rock.Following a serpentine of tight hairpin bends, the path climbs up to the Segantini hut. If you wish, here you can eat, drink and sleep, but above all from this position you can admire the wonderful Pala Group, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site together with the Dolomites since 2009.For maximum fun, the way back to the car park is all downhill. After the Capanna Cervino refuge, another opportunity to taste the delicious Trentino cuisine, an exciting descent begins. Although the area is open and there is visibility even from a distance it is recommended to pay particular attention to hikers.After six kilometers you reach the parking lot. Near the Capanna Cervino Refuge, for those with an advanced driving technique, it is also possible to take a couple of trails to the left of the itinerary to add a little more adrenaline to the descent. At the end of the tour it is recommended to pay attention to a stretch of about one kilometer on which mountain biking is not officially permitted.
