Largo dell’altopiano della gardetta loop

Tour dedicated to trained bikers eager to tackle challenging climbs and descents.

It starts from Borgo Villa di Acceglio, where you follow a forest track along Maira da Frere that leads to the hamlet of Maddalena and from Prazzo Superiore to Ponte Marmora. Once arrived, go up towards Marmora-Colle Esischie up to Gr. Avalanghe. From here you leave the asphalt to take the hairpin bends on the right that lead up to Colle Del Mulo. In the last stretch, the hairpin bends require you to push your bike, but once you get to the Colle, you take a military road that runs through the entire plateau to the Gardetta Refuge and Gardetta Pass. You go down to Prato Ciorlero through a technical single track, where you follow the road to Acceglio
