More challenging treks as well as downhill sports and mountain-biking are also available, as well as the opportunity for high-altitude rides with racing bikes, such as the Coe Pass and the Menador ascent. The range of summer activities is completed with Lake Lavarone and its beach with facilities.
On the traces of the Great War
The 1st World War left a number of still very evident traces on Alpe Cimbra, and there are trenches and military buildings to be seen. However, the most remarkable sights are the 7 forts of the Emperor, massive fortresses in strategic locations. In particular, the Cima Vezzena Fort is the arrival point for one of the most fascinating walks in the area, crossing the sunny meadows of the Vezzena Pass, the route then gently climbs to the peak of the “Piz”. The view from up there is breath-taking!
A race for hard-core mountain bikers
One of the most fascinating and well-known cycling races in Trentino is the 100 Km of the Forts. Every year more than 1000 mountain bike enthusiasts race to complete 100 km of dirt tracks through woods and across meadows in the area of the military forts.
