Driving technique (S0 - S5)

The rating of the driving technique is based on the values ​​of singletrail-skala.de.

S0 = S0 describes a single trail that has no special difficulties. These are mostly liquid forest and meadow paths on grippy natural soils or gravel solidified. Stages, rock or root sections are not expected. The slope of the path is light to moderate, the curves are extensive.
S1 = a S1 described way you have to even minor obstacles such as shallow roots and small stones to expect. Very often the odd gulley erosion damage and cause of the increased difficulty of the ground can not be partially solidified. The gradient is a maximum of 40%. Hairpin bends are not expected.
S2 = expect the S grade S2 have to with larger roots and stones. The soil is often not solidified. Steps and shallow steps are expected. Often sharp bends occur, the slope is passages, up to 70%.
S3 = Splinted single trails with many large rocks and / or root sections belonging to the S-level S3. High levels switchbacks and brain-lateral gradients often occur, relaxed roll sections are rare. Frequently is also expected to slippery surfaces and loose rocks, slopes above 70% are not uncommon.
S4 = S 4 describes very steep and strong interlocked single trails with large boulders and / or demanding root passages therebetween often loose debris. Extreme steep ramps, narrow switchbacks and steps in which the chainring touches inevitably come in 4th grade common.

Course: Naturno – Castelbello – Laces – uphill Töbrunn – "Latscher Alm" hut – trail “4-gewinnt-13” – Laces – Castelbello – Naturno

From the town center of Naturno, we take Via Stazione which leads us to a bridge, the starting point of the cycle path on the Lungoadige. We turn right and follow the cycle path to Stava, where we have a beautiful view of the Castle Juval. Arrived in Stava, we turn right, cross the bridge and turn left to follow the cycle path. We continue on the cycle path, which leads us through the village Castelbello. Next we arrive in Laces: we ride to the center, where we turn left. From there we follow the street to the intersection near the "AquaForum". We keep right, go past the ice rink and the restaurant "Latscherhof" and onto a forest road that leads us to the "Magrinböden". From now on it's a long mid-steep uphill ride to the picnic area of "Töbrunn". The last stage of the climb is an up and down before we reach the rustic "Latscher Alm" hut, which offers local specialties. Downhill we take the "4-gewinnt-13" singletrail (S2) which combines two technically demanding trails into one. After 1,2 kilometers on the forest road, we arrive at the legendary trail no. 4, which according to the MountainBIKE magazine, belongs to the Top-Ten-Trails in the Alps. We start the challenging trail, ride downhill through the forest and come back to a forest road. The lower part of trail no. 4 is for hikers only, so we keep riding on the forest road before we turn right onto the next trail (no. 13). This trail is phisically and technically demanding, with some exposed sections alongside some rock and root sections at the lower part of the trail,  which make it even more challenging. Finally the trail crosses the "Neuwaal" path, which brings us back to Laces. From there, we take the cycle path back to our starting point in Naturno.
