MTB-Ponte, Val d'Arigna

Ponte stazione, Sazzo, Arigna, Centrale di Armisa, Foppe, Prataccio in Val d’Arigna - ritorno a Ponte stazione

This route winds through Val d’Aringa, one of the most beautiful valleys in the Orobic mountain chain. It starts at the railway station in Ponte and it is tarmac from here to Fontaniva-Arigna with a constant gradient of about 8%. A compact rough track takes you into the valley, on long straight stretches to the Armisa power plant. The car park above is the start of the steepest climb, a rough track with some concrete parts that, about 3 kilometres later, comes out at Foppe on the upper valley shelf. Continuing along the steep loose mule track with a gradient of up to 20% then brings you to the mountain chalets or baite in Prataccio, set in an unspoilt natural amphitheatre “up in the mountains” at Cime del Druet, Pizzo Coca col Dente and the small Lupo glacier. At Foppe you can turn left onto the rough track to Campei mountain chalet.
