Passo delle Erbe - Malga Zannes - Malga Gampen - Rifugio Genova - Passo Göma - Passo delle Erbe
Starting at Passo delle Erbe, follow the tarmac road to San Pietro in Funes, where you turn towards Santa Maddalena. From Santa Maddalena, a hamlet of the municipality of Funes, we proceed in the direction of Malga Zannes, at first on an asphalted road and then into the forest. Accompanied by incredible views of the Odle, you reach Malga Gampen (altitude 2,062 m), from where the toughest section begins: the ascent to Rifugio Genova, which cuts vertically through the mountain with a difference in altitude of over 300 m in just a few hundred metres. On reaching the hut, the trail turns into a scenic single trail, which becomes slightly technical, but developed on a flat or slightly downhill slope, when you move onto the lower right-hand path. Here the view sweeps from the Sexten Dolomites group to the Odle and the Sella group to the Marmolada. From here, the section through the meadows dotted with wooden huts at the foot of Sass de Pütia allows you to relax for a moment and enjoy the nature of the high altitude. On reaching the Göma pass, the path descends to the left, and past the hut of the same name (Ütia de Göma), it gradually becomes rockier and it will be necessary to push the bike for about ten minutes. Soon the path turns into an easy dirt road, which completes the loop around the massif and takes us back to the Passo delle Erbe. From here we ride along two hairpin bends on an asphalt road and then take a path to the right. Asphalt and dirt road sections of ascent and descent follow one after the other until the return to Santa Maddalena.
Fanes Trail for experts
Dedicated to experts with great physical endurance is the Fanes Trail, which, as the name suggests, branches off into the Fanes-Sennes-Braies nature park. Needless to say, one is confronted with unspoilt nature that offers landscapes of extraordinary beauty, but conquering it will not be easy: around 57 km of trail, where in some sections it will be necessary to carry the MTB by hand due to the steepness of the paths.
