Description

This doubletrack connects the village of Volastra (alt. 340 m) and a street at Colle del Telegrafo (alt. 516 m).

Between Volastra and the sanctuary of Madonna di Montenero the trails follows a dirt road at the elevation line of 400m. Near the sanctuary "MadonnaDiMontenero" the dirt trail changes to asphalt. The small paved road is closed for traffic and winds up at a ridge.

(In second u-turn a trail branches off: Madonna di Montenero (don't ride, when there a lot of hikers). I recommend to visit the church and the viewpoint. If there are no hikers at this short ride it: it's a little nice downhill through the vineyards and it's also possible to ride it upwards.)

The paved road will change back to a dirt road, when you've got the climb. Soon you'll get a view to the sea and shortly after you'll reach the street and a small restaurant at Colle del Telegrafo (alt. 516 m).
