    After using the lift yesterday to cross the 3,000 mark, I recommend that you skip the shuttle for the first ascent today. The path through the valleys Valle dei Forni and the subsequent Valle di Cedec are not a walk in the park, but on the way you can enjoy an incomparable mountain panorama with a view of the glacier. It's not like a bumpy ride locked in an off-road vehicle.At the Pizzini hut you can strengthen yourself after the arduous uphill. Then it goes on a hiking trail to the transition to Val Zebrù at 3,004 meters. Everything is mobile up to the hut. From now on you will have to push or carry your bike for the last 300 meters in altitude. What awaits you then is one of the great enduro highlights of the Alps: From Passo Zebrù it is initially steep and partly blocked, but for technically confident bikers it is easy to ride up to the eye of a needle. With one hand on the wire rope and one hand on the bike you conquer a passage of about a hundred meters. After that, it becomes much more fluid to ride: If you haven't been able to drive much up to this passage, then you can now look forward to a great high-alpine trail that gives you the flow feeling.At the rustic and comfortably simple Rifugio Campo you can take a deep breath, process the overwhelming impressions and reduce the adrenaline of the descent. You leave the Val Zebrù at the foot of the Königsspitze and the eponymous Monte Zebrù towards Bormio on gravel paths and a few beautiful trails.If you are extremely motivated, you can crank up from Bormio to the Stilfser Joch. That is about 21 kilometers and 1,550 meters in altitude. The alternative is the post bus line from Bormio to the pass or a shuttle service. You can find information here:

    The goal of today's stage is the Rifugio Garibaldi on the Dreisprachenspitze. The imposing location across from the Ortler is reason enough for an overnight stay. In addition, there is the super nice staff and the cosiness of the hut when it gets quiet in the evening. On the morning of the fifth stage you are the first on the Goldseetrail and don't have to worry about the temporary closure of the path.You can find information about the hut here: rifugiogaribaldi.it
