Description

If you are staying in Bormio it's really worth riding the cable car up to Bormio 2000 for mind-blowing views and an excellent network of hikes. This trail is full of mountain vistas, shady forest paths and opportunities to stop for a bite along the way.

At the Bormio 2000 station follow the S543 to La Rocca. Here you need to switch onto the S542 to Sobrettina before descending along a series of switchbacks through a red spruce forest to San Pietro. At this point, the trail flattens out, and patches of clearing open up to give you panoramic views of the Valfurva. From Campolungo take the S540 down to Feleit and on to Bormio.
