Downhill-oriented mountain bike tour with crisp single trails on the heart of Route 32 Trans-Altarezia Bike. Thanks to the shuttle to the Umbrail Pass, you can save the ascent with around 1000 meters of altitude difference on the Umbrail Pass road and enjoy the long descents on the single trails to the fullest. 

From the Umbrail Pass (2501 m above sea level.M) you can reach the Bocchetta di Forcula at 2768 m above sea level on a well.M route, where you can marvel at old military installations from the First World War. After a short downhill, the ascent to the Bocchetta di Pedenolo (2704 m above sea level.M) is worthwhile and then tackles the descent to Lago di Cancano on the flowing single trail. Along the lakes Lago di Cancano and Lago di San Giacomo di Fraéle you drive on a wide gravel road in the middle of the alpine landscape to the Passo di Fraéle and then reach the Passo Val Mora (1934 m above.M sea level), the portal to Switzerland.

To Palüetta (2009 m above sea.M level) you drive on a well-navigable single trail and then reach a forest road, which leads through the picturesque Val Mora up to Döss Radond at 2234 m above.M sea level. The scenic beauty of Val Mora makes this long, but not steep, climb a pleasure.

From Döss Radond some exciting and secret single trails lead right next to the forest road back to Sta. Maria.

Alternatively, the tour can be organized by very strong bikers as a round trip from Sta. Maria.
