2. Trail Tour “Marchkinkele” and Monte Elmo

Start from the Bike Hotel Alpenblick ****s along the cycling path towards San Candido, continue along the railway line to Dobbiaco. Keep following the “Stoneman” signs over Costanosellari, pass the “Lachwiesen Hut” (1,690) to the S. Silvestro Chapel (1,800) and from there along a military road from the First World War in switchbacks until Marchkinkele (2,550). Each turn of the pedal on this magnificent descent is accompanied by the unique panorama of the Sesto Dolomites with the Tre Cime di Lavaredo in the background. The Marchkinkele is situated on the border with East Tyrol and offers an amazing 360° view of the Sesto Dolomites as well as Austria’s glacier landscape. Follow the path across the plateau and then turn left along an initially flowing trail which has a few, not too technically difficult, hairpin bends towards Malga S. Silvestro hut, from there to S. Silvestro Square and then towards Versciaco. From Versciaco, take the Monte Elmo cable car to the Monte Elmo (2,040). The comfortable descent to the Baita del Cacciatore starts here and then on to the last rest stop at the “Gasthof Waldruhe” with a fantastic view across the valley to the starting point at the Bike Hotel Alpenblick ****s back to Sesto/Moso.

Refreshment huts: Gasthof zum Klaus, Rifugio Lachwiesen hut, Malga S. Silvestro hut, Monte Elmo restaurant, Baita del Cacciatore, Waldruhe restaurant.
