Besides the shaped bike park trails, Paganella Bike Area has many natural lines to offer as well, which are often shared with hikers.
Among these trails, Giada Line is definitely a must-do for multiple reasons, such as length, variety, vertical drop, but also huts and amazing landscape. At the top of the lift, you can stop for a meal, a beer, or simply a coffee at Rifugio la Roda, a really nice hut located at the peak of Cima Paganella.
From here, the view is breathtaking, and it’s the best place to admire the surroundings.
Looking south, you can see Lake Cavedine and Lake Garda, all the way down to the horizon where the mountains end.
Moving your head towards the east, you can admire Brenta Dolomites, where amazing peaks for summer hikes and winter ski tours are waiting for you. When you feel like leaving the hut and dropping into the trail, a rather slow and technical first section is waiting for you - be cautious of the hikers here.
You'll often meet someone about to reach the peak of Paganella.
The second section of the trail is the most challenging one.
No matter if it’s sunny or not, it is often muddy and soapy, with different rock gardens where you don’t have a wide range of lines to choose from.
From Malga Zambana on, despite the terrain remaining full of rock gardens and roots, the trail gets a little bit wider and faster, allowing you to find the best lines and play around on the natural features. On some parts of the trail, you can either choose to go all the way down to Fai della Paganella bottom station through Giada Line or traverse back to Andalo through Ribs trail.
The two trails share the first parts. What this trail offers is a 360 degrees experience of enduro riding, starting from alpine single-trail on open fields to rock gardens and roots in the middle of amazing green forests.
Despite being one of the most beautiful trails in the area, it requires an advanced riding level and confidence, especially when wet.
