MTB tour to Mount Salto and Langfenn

The famous larch meadows between San Genesio and Meltina are our destination for today. A MTB tour with valley and mountain sections.

Starting point of our MTB tour is Andriano. Thanks to the good cycle path network also other near villages like Appiano or Bolzano can be perfect starting points. First we cycle to Riva di Sotto where we go to the other side of the valley, to Settequerce. Here we proceed towards Bolzano, arrive at the market square of San Quirino and reach the valley station of the S. Genesio cable car via the Fagenstraße road. The cable car brings us up to 1,000 metres asl.. Now the actual effort starts.

Through the village of S. Genesio we cycle uphill towards Valas. The path no. 1 branches off on the left, it leads past the Edelweiss inn up to the larch meadows. The path is a forest road without any problems to cycle. After about one hour (from S. Genesio) our destination is reached, the little church of Langfenn. From there we cycle downhill to Schermoos (gravel road) and further to Meltina on the country road. Past the villages of Vallesina and Frassineto we proceed downhill towards Terlano and from there we cycle back to Andriano, our starting point.
