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. We pass through the villages Plaus and Rablà until we reach Tel. We cross the state road and take the new cycle path to Lagundo which takes us downhill to the town's open air swimming pool. We cross the wooden bridge and continue to the next intersection, where we turn left to the Forst brewery. Near the brewery we cross the state road again and take the climb that leads to Marlengo. Via a hilly road we arrive in Marlengo. We pass through the town and descend to Cermes and then Lana (signposted). In Lana we cross two roundabouts and arrive at an intersection where the road turns sharply to the left. We continue straight ahead on a short stretch of cobblestone towards Lana di Sotto. We pass by the church of Lana di Sotto (where the altar of Schnatterpek is located) and continue through the apple orchards towards Bolzano. Finally we get to a roundabout near a gas station, which we cross. We ride straight on to the next intersection. Then we ride downhill, where we pass by a sawmill. We continue along this road keeping to the left. We pass through an underpass and arrive at a snack bar. Next, we continue along the Wine Route until we get to a crossroads, where we turn right towards S. Paolo. After a short climb, we arrive at S. Paolo. We pass through the town and continue in direction of Appiano and Caldaro. We continue on the road that leads to Caldaro, past the "Maxi Mode Center" shopping center. At the crossroads, we turn right towards Passo Mendola. Once at the Mendola pass (1363 m), we continue downhill towards Fondo. From there, the road takes us to Passo Palade which is the highest point of our excursion (1520 m). From Passo Palade we ride down to Lana (be careful in the tunnels!). Once in Lana, at the roundabout we continue towards Merano and eventually Marlengo. We turn left and take the climb towards Marlengo. From there, we ride on to Foresta and Lagundo. We return to Naturno the way we came.
