Sentiero 115 -> Ca Bianca Shuttle Run Map

This two-trail combination runs from the Base Nato shuttle drop all the way down the mountain.

Description

Sentiero 115 is yet another “berm-packed track” in the flowy Base Nato zone, according to local mountain bike journalist Brian Gerow. Dropping a short ways down the mountain, it quickly reaches a dirt road where you could catch a shuttle back up… or, you can opt to continue further down to reach the valley floor.

After finishing Sentiero 115, a few short trails weave around the pavement, allowing you to bypass most of the paved riding. Keep an eye out for trails dropping off the road for some fun side hits!

Ca Bianca is yet another ultra-technical lower mountain trail that features a massive washout down the middle most years, and plenty of exposed, sharp rocks. The key tip for riding Ca Bianca, according to the local guides? Ride high on the sides and try to stay out of the wheel-sucking middle trench!
