Mount Specie

The shuttle bus takes us from San Giorgio into the Braies valley. Once we have reached Braies we turn left towards Prato Piazza where we leave the bus in a car park, transfer to our bikes and begin a wonderfully beautiful tour with a spectacular panorama over the Dolomites. It is just under 6 km to the summit cross at Mount Specie with an ascent of 334 m, but the climb is well worth the effort, as the reward is a wonderful view of the Three Peaks. We return towards the car park, where there are plenty of opportunities for refreshments. Afterwards we can either cycle along the ‘Stolla’ technical trail or take an easier route along the forest track towards Ponticello. From there we cycle out of the valley along an easy forest track that joins the cycle track to Brunico. We follow this track, enjoying the scenery in peace. Once in Brunico we pass the swimming pool and reach the centre of the town, from where it is only another two kilometres back to San Giorgio.

The entire route has a descent of 1,613 metres, making it very pleasant and an easy ride. This tour is also recommended as a sunrise tour, with a superb breakfast at the hut!
