107-Ringia Supertrail-

Valle del Chiese
Malga Ringia is one of the most fascinating trail junction points in the valley of the river Chiese.
It is a mountain pasture located at a height of 1,386 metres, amidst bloomy meadows and facing the majestic glaciers of the Adamello massif. This tour was named Ringia Supertrail because this is precisely what it offers: a super tour with countless amazing flow-trail stretches and a few technically difficult ones. 

TRACK DESCRIPTION

From the tourist office of the town of Cologna a long gravel road climbs to the pass of Monte Giovo, where you will face the first real challenge of this super trail: 

after the last, very steep stretch leading to the pass, the following couple of hundred metres between Monte Giovo and Malga Cap are extremely arduous, and require peak physical shape ‒ or an eMTB. Those who do not have either, may want to dismount and push their bike. But do not despair: upon reaching Malga Cap the track stops climbing, and from there onwards it descends constantly on gravel terrain until it reaches Bocca Giumella.

The following stretch is truly fascinating: it starts with a steep ascent until the trail reaches a flat stretch and then continues downhill through the wood, offering a number of very fast slopes that are ideal for your eMTB turbo mode. If you are riding a regular MTB, however, you might want to dismount to cross them. 

Once you reach Malga Ringia, you may either turn right and uphill continuing on the super-trail itinerary of Via dei Todesch Tour, or resume your descent on a narrow paved road leading to Forte Cariola, an imposing World War I stronghold built to prevent the Italian army from penetrating North into the Austrian territory. Ahead of the stronghold a smooth but exciting path crosses the small town of Por and leads you to the stronghold Castel Romano, whose solid build lies on ancient Roman foundations.

After a short break at the Castel, you can resume your tour ‒ and the fun ‒ by following the narrow path leading to Valle Naione, which runs alongside a little brook and where levelled ground alternates with steps. Here you conclude your tour by following the road that takes you back to Cologna.
