Valle delle Mine is one of the most famous and beautiful trail in Livigno, a beautiful singletrail in a high mountain environment and flow.

The start of this path is located in Livigno, we recommend to park in Tresenda, at the entrance of the Valli delle Mine, you will find a comfortable parking spaces indicated as P13. From here in this way we will have almost 3 kilometers of warm-up,along the bike path, before starting the climb.

From the center of Livigno it will start a long climb about 7 km on asphalt until the Eira Pass. All the route is along the main street that conduct to the Foscagno pass and in summer with high traffic.

Once you reach the Eira pass it is advisable to take a moment's break near the ski lift;in fact,just after the ski lift, on the right, we will find a wide dirt road that will lead us to the top of the Mottolino; the first meters are not demanding, however, at certain times the climb becomes extremely challenging with peaks at 20% interspersed with very short flat moments where you can breathe until you reach the Mottolino.



We will pass under the cableway and will continue to climb but only for a while until the path becomes flat.


At the end of the climb we will find a junction where we have to turn on right and follow a dirt road that leads to the refuge Camanel di Planon, from where starts the long singletrail of ups and downs that will lead us to Valle delle Mine.


From Camanel of Planon it will begin this long singletrail of continuous ups and downs that will remain always on the coast and will lead us to the valley of the Mine, the downhill sections are 100% on bike, while the short uphill sections can be extremely challenging in certain points and only the most trained will be able to overcome them always on bike.




We will meet some crossroads that can lead us to Livigno, we will have to avoid them, always keeping the left, once we reach the valley will begin a long and fun descent that will lead us along the dirt road of the valley of the Mine,always on beautiful singletrail.


At the end of the downhill we will arrive along the dirt road of the Valle delle mine, we will not immediately start the descent but will turn on left and continue towards the agriturismo alpe Mine.



Just before the farm we will turn right and cross the little river, thanks to a small wooden bridge, after which we will face for a few meters an impervious climb and after that it will begin the very long Flowtrail that will take us back to Livigno;the trail is very flow.


The second part develops in a beautiful wood, we will meet some crossroads along the way but we will always have to keep the left. The last part is the most technical and demanding, especially in the last meters where we will find a series of narrow hairpin bends where the slopes are very high.


At the end of the downhill we will arrive along the cycle path,keeping the right we will be able to return to Livigno and to the parking from which we had started.
