Valsassina cycle route
This trail is ideal for the entire family
This trail is ideal for the entire family. A blissful cycle on a safe, specially designed route, it allows travellers to admire the mountains of Valssassina and discover some of the most
beautiful and well-hidden corners of the Pioverna River.
It begins at the so-called “Chiusa” of the Valsassina (570 m), the area bordering the rocky
sides on the outskirts of the valley, before reaching the village of Introbio near to the
bridge on the Pioverna river. A large sign will point you towards the cycle route on the left hand side of the river. The route snakes down the bank of the Pioverna and will take you to the village of Prato San Pietro/Cortenova (478 m). The entire cycle route is paved and easy to travel on. It is particularly suited to families, and ideal for organising picnics, swims in the river during the hotter months of the year, visits to the neighbouring villages and other sporting activities such as horseback riding at one of the many riding schools dotted along the trail.
