Cross-country/all-mountain trail leading to the wonderful meadows of Pian del Bene, under Mount Ario.
The track starts at a convenient parking lot in Zigole, a small district of Bovegno. From here you’ll ascend on a secondary asphalt road, continuing until Irma, from where the steepest section of ascent starts in the direction of Passo Croce: the road is half unpaved.
From here you’ll take the nice unpaved road, leading you to Malga Pian del Bene after some hairpin turns; here you can enjoy some amazing panoramas of higher Valtrompia and Garda territory.
Starting from Malga Croce, the descent is on a forest road: at first, it’s steep in some segments, then it continues on forest roads in the woods along the whole trail. In the second part, the track becomes more steep and technical, with short single-track segments, until the village of Bovegno.
40% asphalt, 20% single track, 30% unpaved road
