Monte Cavone variant
- Alpe di Siusi
- Presule, 1084 m
The route runs along the slopes of the towering Croda del Maglio and Monte Cavone, giving bikers an extra challenge if you still have some energy left after the Schnaggenkreuz route.
The Monte Cavone variant splits off from the Schnaggenkreuz Cross loop just before the hamlet of Umes; at the crossroads to the Via Cavone, where the regular route leads to Umes, take the left (towards the “Strickler Häusl”). Unlike the regular route, you can clock up a few metres of elevation here. This variant leads you up to 1,375 m at the foot of the Cima di Monte Balzo and Monte Cavone. The descent leads you past the Schönblick mountain restaurant. 1 kilometre further on, you meet up with the Schnaggenkreuz loop route again; if you want to take a trip to the Schnaggenkreuz cross, head straight on here.
