Mountain Bike in Andalo Paganella



1) DOSS PELA' - PIAN DEL DOSSON - ANDALO

Reach Doss Pelà by cable car; from the arrival station turn right and crossed the flat area descend for about 50 metres on the left- hand edge of the ski track then continue on the road that cuts across the hillside.
After a few minutes of easy biking, you come to the S. Antonio slope; cross this and continue along a flat strecht to the fork for Malga Covelo. After the first true descent (take care) ignore the fork to the left. Continue up a short climb that takes you across the slope descending from Paganella2. The road continues through the woods to reach Pian Dosson, which we go through to the right, taking the second fork, and after some metres continues downhill again for about 4 kilometres. At the junction with the provincial road turn left to reach Andalo.

2) DOSS PELA' - MALGA COVELO - PASSO SAN GIOVANNI - MALGA CIAGO - GAGGIA - ANDALO

Reach Doss Pelà by cable car; from the arrival station turn right and past the flat area descend for about 50 metres on the left-hand edge of the ski track then continue on the road that cuts across the hillside. After a few minutes easy biking, you come to the S. Antonio slope; cross this and continue along a flat stretch to the fork for Malga Covelo.
Follow the sign at the fork, keep right to the top of a small panoramic hill from which you see the route which after a short challenging descent takes you to the shepherd's hut. Continue uphill to the road that leads from Malga Covelo to Passo San Giacomo.
At the fork (1800 m) turn right to descend to Malga Covelo. The typical mountain scenery is worth a stop. Cross the pastures to begin the descent towards Passo San Giovanni.
At the end of the descent, close to a small altar, turn right and follow a track across the meadows that ends when it meets a tractor road. Continue then turn right along the tractor road, going past the barrier. The road continues up and down hill; after a couple of kilometres ignore the first left- hand turning and take the second one that goes down to Malga Ciago, once used for grazing cattle.
Look carefully on the left hand side of the meadow next to the woods for a path that descends into the valley , marked by red and white stripes on some stones. The descent through the woods is pleasant and ends with a small fountain on the edge of the path.
At the end of the path turn right and continue along the tractor road, which ends in a clearing. Follow the path that enters the wood on the left and at a spring (Acqua dele Scudele) turn left along a path strewn with large rocks where is better to dismount and walk. On leaving the woods there is a farmhouse where you continue straight ahead; cross the meadow and the road continues in the pine woods to the meadows of Gaggia, where it meets the ski slopes.
Continue downhill to Andalo along the road at the edge of the piste.
