Somamunt da Monguelfo
Very challenging itinerary for both the steep ascent and the technical descent, but also very enjoyable and scenic.
From Monguelfo take the bike path to Valdaora, climb to Bagni di Pervalle and then to the Furcia pass all on dirt roads and trails.
At the pass you descend into Val Badia and then climb up the challenging forest road to the Somamunt pass, with the last km very steep.
A beautiful view of the Braies Dolomites opens up from the pass and you take a fun trail at altitude, which then connects to the trail down into the valley, which is fun but technical.
The trail first comes out in the Foresta valley
and then comes to Lake Braies. Here one must be careful of the many hikers present.
From the lake you descend on the fun trail 1 and then on a bike path back to Monguelfo.
