MTB-Torre S. Maria, Alpe Arcoglio inferiore e Alpe Piasci

A classic route offering a chance to visit some of the Torre Santa Maria mountain meadows. There is no direct easy link on roads between Arcoglio and Piasci, only a really bumpy trail, so this route has two separate aims: the amazing views offered by both options are worth the effort. The average gradient and length at times make medium pedal assist necessary. The climb starts on tarmac and continues on concrete and rough track. There are a good many hairpins before you cross to the north and reach a turn-off just before Braccia. Here go left to your first meeting with the Arcoglio Inferiore baite or mountain chalets and views out over the Bernina mountain range and Pizzo Scalino. Returning to the previous turn-off and a short crossing with final climb brings you out in the vast meadow with the Piasci baite.
