Monte Roen

The usual superlatives don’t suffice for this dream tour, which is counted as one of the best in the Alps. Yet at the start you’ll have to face a good 1,800 elevation gain ascent! From Kaltern start on asphalt on a traffic-low road to Altenburg, then on uphill gravel path to Curon/Graun. After the turning to the Passo Curon/Grauner Joch, a steep wall looms to the west. Time to ride up it! The gravel path leads moderately in bends to Grat. Even if you’ll bike across sparse woods most of the time, there are always beautiful sights to see. Even the Passo Curon, an old pass into the Nonstal in Trentino, is located in the woods. From here, bike on a forest path, then on a steep trail to the summit of Monte Roen. This trail will become so steep and peppered with obstacles from the weather cross that you’ll have to push or carry your bike for about 1.25 km. There are some places in-between where you can ride your bike at a more demanding pace. You’re rewarded by a breathtaking view across the Nonstal valley until the Ortler in the West and shortly before the summit even across the South Tyrolean Unterland and the Dolomites.

The last kilometres to the summit of Monte Roen can be biked across mountain fields. At the summit, the view will leave you speechless: the whole Dolomite chain with the Sciliar/Schlern, Rosengarten, and Latemar to the east, and the glacier region of the Ortler to the west. And a view across Bozen and its airport. A crowning end is the downhill trail. The easy trail leads down to the Malga Romeno, where you can stop for a bite to eat. Continue on a partially uprooted trail to the midway hut, another resting stop above the Mendelpass pass. From here, roll on gravel path to the Mendel. The whooshing downhill stretch on the Mendelstraße features another particular trait as a parting gift: the brand new Mendelsteig. This path is a fairly wide and gravelly forest path, which can be tackled by anyone fairly easily, featuring some bends, leading downhill to the Boos forest road. Take the sunken lane downhill to the edge of Kaltern - a highlight for technical bikers. Here you can choose if you want to take a detour across the Kaltern sport zone via beautiful trails and gravel paths, or end the tour by simply gently rolling down the hill to the village. Overall, the tour on Monte Roen is a gem for ambitious bikers with good physical condition and biking skills.
