MTB-San Giuseppe, Sasso Alto

San Giuseppe, I Barchi, Lago Palù, Alpe Palù, Passo Campolungo, Monte Motta Sasso Alto - ritorno a San Giuseppe

A fairly short but difficult route due to its gradients with some quite long stretches of about 15% that require help from medium/high pedal assist. You ride up from San Giuseppe on tarmac to Barchi, make the short climb up the ski slope and turn off to the left along a rough track with some very steep parts that leads to the lake and Rifugio Palù. After riding around the lake on the right-hand bank, continue along the service ski track that will bring you first to Passo di Campolungo and then to Monte Motta, again fairly steep. At the top you get a 360° view of all of Valmalenco. From Passo Campolungo you can link up with the Campo Moro dams’ area following rough tracks and trails, but returning along the same route may require the use of a second battery. You can also complete the entire round trip starting from Chiesa.
