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 – Silandro – Lasa – Tarnell – Cava di marmo di Covelano – "Göflaner Alm" hut – Holy Hansen Trail – Covelano – 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, Laces, Coldrano, Silandro, Covelano and finally Lasa. Right at the beginning of Lasa we turn left towards Tarnell and the valley of Lasa (signposted). We take the uphill towards the mountain village Tarnell and get to a crossroad at a marble road. We turn left towards the marble quarries of Coldrano (2150m), where we can have a look at the white gold. From the quarries we take the trail nr. 3 to the "Göflaner Alm" hut. After a break at the hut we ride on the forest road towards the "Kohlplätzen" (1682m), where we take the forest road that goes slightly uphill. This road finally leads into a trail where we need to cross some mountain streams, to arrive at the "Weiskaser Alm" hut. Just underneath the hut, the well known "Holy Hansen Trail" starts and brings us all the way back down to Covelano, where we return to Naturno on the cycle path.
