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 / Bahnhofstraße which leads us to a bridge, the starting point of the cycle path on the Lungoadige / Etschdamm. We turn right and take the cycle path towards Stava, where we will have a beautiful view to Castle of Juval. Arrived in Stava, we turn right, cross the bridge and turn left to follow the cycle path. We follow the cycle Path which leads us through the villages Castelbello and Laces where we ride to the center and turn left and follow the street to the intersection near the AquaForum. We keep on the right side, ride past the ice rink and the restaurant "Latscherhof" into a forest street that leads us to the Magrinböden. From now on it´s a long mid-steep uphill to the pic nic place of "Töbrunn". The last stage of the climb is an up and down to reach the "Latscher Alm" hut. We take our time for a break and have lunch at the hut with a special local flavour. For the downhill we take the "4-gewinnt-13" singletrail (S2) which combines two technically really demanding trails into one. After 1,2 kilometers on the forest street, where we came from, we arrive at the legendary trail nr. 4, which according to the MountainBIKE magazine is one of the ten best trails in the alps. We jump into the trail and ride down through the forest and arrive back at a forest street. The lower part of the trail nr. 4 is only for the hikers so we take a ride a small part on the forest street to relax our whole body before we turn right into the next trail (nr. 13) which is also a phisically and technically demanding trail with some exposed sections alongside some rock and root sections at the lower part of the trail which makes it even more difficult. Finally the trail crosses the "Neuwaal" trail that brings us back to Laces and from there on we take the cycle path back to our starting point in Naturno.
