Description

The route is technical with a steep ascent and descent section. The majority of the trail takes you through beautiful woodland, before ascending to a stretch of open pastureland. You begin and end at the Tea del Plan refuge and you also pass the Costaccia refuge just before the finish, so there are a couple of opportunities for a refuel and breather.

The Forest Loop Route was developed as part of the Carosello 3000 high altitude Run Park together with Soul Running Magazine back in 2016. For more information on the Trail Running Park in Livigno: https://www.livigno.eu/en/magazine/Running18052016LIVIGNO-LAND-FOR-TRAIL-RUNNERS6710
