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 – Rablá – Tel - uphill Rio Lagundo – Bike Highline Merano to "Tablander Alm" hut – Lupo Trail – Fontana Trail - 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 left onto the cycle path towards Merano. Arrived in Tel, we turn right and start our uphill ride towards Rio Lagundo. The first 2,4 km are the toughest with a gradient of 16% at some points. At the first crossroad, we keep right and follow the signs to Rio Lagundo (1340m). From Rio Lagundo, we take the asphalt street and follow the signs to San Vigilio. After a barrier, the asphalt street turns into a forest path that leads us to San Vigilio (1760m). Just before San Vigilio, we arrive at a crossroad where the Merano Bike Highline starts. We follow the Bike Highline westwards in a constant up and down past the huts of Naturno, Zetn and Mausloch to finally reach the "Tablander Alm" hut. The Merano Bike Highline mostly runs along a forest road - only a small part from the "Mausloch Alm" hut to the "Tablander Alm" hut stretches on a narrow trail. After a well deserved break at the "Tablander Alm" hut, we follow the Bike Highline to the start of the "Lupo Trail" (no.4). On the "Lupotrail" we cross the forest road twice, before getting to an asphalt street. There, we leave the trail and proceed on the asphalt street to the next hairpin bend, where we take trail no.9 (Fontanatrail), which brings us to the "Niedermair" farm. By following the technically demanding "Fontanatrail", with a lot of rocky and blocked but also flowy sections, we reach the bottom of the valley at Ciardes. From there we take the cycle path to return to Naturno.
