MTB tour via Pochi to Mount Corno

This trip leads us from the valley bottom of the Adige river up to the Malga Corno (1,715 m a.s.l.) in the Trodena Nature Park.

Starting point of this mountain bike trip is the village of Laghetti (Laag), south of Egna, of course any other village along the route can be starting point and ending as it is a circular tour. In Laghetti we cycle towards south, through the apple orchards until shortly before Salorno (220 m a.s.l.), where the road to Pochi di Salorno and Cauria starts. We cycle uphill and after some bends we reach the village of Pochi di Salorno at approx. 550 m a.s.l. Past the village we continue our tour always along the asphalt road up to the mountain village of Cauria (Gfrill) at 1,300 m a.s.l.

Broadleaf and mixed forests and vineyards characterise the landscape. In Cauria the gravelled road up to the Monte Corno (Trudner Horn) starts. We follow the marker E5. The path is traced out quite well, only a short section is eroded and another one is paved with partly broken cobblestones. Finally we reach the Malga Corno mountain hut at 1,715 m a.s.l., just beneath the summit of the Monte Corno. It's time for our lunch break and we enjoy typical South Tyrolean dishes. To come down into the valley again we take the forest road to Trodena (Truden).

After this really nice downhill ride we reach the village centre and drive along the asphalt road towards Molini and Gleno (direction of Montagna). At the village entrance of Montagna, the road to Pinzano and Egna branches off. In Egna we take the Adige Cycle Route which leads us back to Laghetti again, where our circular tour ends.
