A flat stage that can be traveled by foot and by MTB, that is suitable for everyone: sportsmen, families, children in strollers, and joëlette.


From the Towers of Fraele, in Valdidentro, traverse the panoramic Decauville until Arnoga. This trail gets its name from the French inventor, Paul Decauville, who designed a railway prototype particularly well suited for difficult mountain areas. This railway, now dismantled, was used to transport materials for the construction of Cancano dams and hydroelectric plant.

Details


This stage is completely flat, easy, and suitable for all. From the Fraele Towers head down two bends on the main Cancano road, then take the Decauville (path n. N195) to the right, an unpaved road that leads to Arnoga. Along the way you can admire the picturesque Alpine pastures and pine forests between Val Vezzola and Val di Foscagno, with the Cima Piazzi glacier and views over Bormio and Valdidentro visible in the distance. This stage offers no refreshment stops along the route. Take water and snacks sufficient for the length of the route, especially if there are children with you. From Arnoga you can take a bus in either direction between Bormio and Livigno.
