This easy MTB tour delights everyone, as it runs mostly on the forest path without any major challenging passages. The fantastic view of the neighbouring Dolomite mountains such as Rosengarten/Catinaccio, Schlern/Sciliar and Latemar is always fascinating.
Take highway's exit “Bolzano Nord/Val d'Ega”, turn right direction Bolzano/Bozen, after about 0,5 km on roundabout keep left and head towards Val d’Ega (SS 241). Keep driving up to Ponte Nova. At Ponte Nova’s crossroads, turn to the left and continue to Nova Levante (about 20 min. from highway toll booth).
The Laurin I cable car takes you comfortably up the first 560 metres of altitude; you go from Welschnofen/Nova Levante (1182 m) to the Hut Frommer Alm (1743 m). Via the trail entrance you reach a gravel path, where you keep to the right. Soon afterwards the trail crosses the Niger road and you continue along the road to the Nigerpass/Passo Nigra. Here you branch off to the left and the forest path leads leisurely through the forest. The Farm Hagneralm and the Farm Schillerhof invite you to take a break and enjoy the fantastic view of the mountain ranges of the Rosengarten/Catinaccio and the Latemar. Then pass the four-metre-deep wolf pit, where it is said that the last wolf was caught in 1822. After about another 5 km you reach the Restaurant Lärchenwald. To the right of the Lärchenwald, follow the road to the crossroads, where you turn left and head towards Gummer/San Valentino. Continue along the main road for about 3.7 km until the road to Welschnofen/Nova Levante branches off to the left. After a good 6 km you reach the starting point.
