849 - Discesa Sommo Alto
Beautiful funny descent from the arrival station of the chairlift Francolini - Sommo Alto to the protected natural area Biotopo di Ecken, returning to the starting point, in Francolini.
The formula is chairlift + bike + steep descent. It means that it is possible to hang the mtb to the chairlift and climb easily to a height. In this way you start from Francolini and in ten minutes you arrive at the mountain hut Stella d'Italia, an "historic" hut, among the first of the Alpe Cimbra. From the terrace you have a breathtaking view on the village Folgaria and on the Brenta Dolomites. A little further up is the fortress Sommo Alto. Push on the pedal and reach it. It is worth stopping for a visit. Now it is time to get back on the saddle and start to descend quickly to the starting point. It's pure fun!
