Description

This short loop departs from the bike shop in downtown Laigueglia and climbs up a paved road to the top of the nearby mountainside.

Once on top, the route jumps onto singletrack, descending the Laigueglia DH trail along the ridge. The route then banks hard left to pick up the Cimitero trail, eventually dropping all the way back down to the town of Laigueglia.

Overall these trails are less technical than some others in this region of Liguria, but some exposure mixed with rock features can pose challenges to intermediate-level riders.

If you don't want to pedal all the way to the top of the mountain, the entire climb consists of a paved road, so this singletrack is easy to shuttle
