From Compaccio, where there's also a bicycle rental, we cycle on the asphalted road towards Punta d'Oro and Molignon. Before arriving at the Hotel Punta d'Oro we follow gravel trail no. 7, which leads us to the Molignon mountain hut, where we take a short rest.
Afterwards, we continue our tour on trail no. 8 in the direction of Saltria. Arrived at the Tirler mountain hut (1,770 m asl), we follow the trail upwards towards the Zallinger mountain hut (2,037 m asl). Cycling through the wood in the direction of Monte Pana, we take trail no. 3 on our left, which leads us to Saltria from where we cycle on an asphalted road back to our starting point Compaccio.
Information: this MTB tour offers great panoramic views of the Alpe di Siusi and the Dolomites. Although the length of the tour and its altitude difference are not exaggerated, some ascents can be quite challenging since there are few shady sections!
