Already in March the Propain Trail brings joy in Schlanders. Thanks to the mild climate, the Monte Sole mountain is a paradise for mountain bikers from spring to late autumn.
The beginning of the Propain Trail is shared with hikers. Then the trail, famous for its aridity and its ground and forestry floor, winds its way through the valley partly steep terrain with different curves, some of which are more narrow, and beautiful passages crossing between the sparse forests of conifers. After a short "Share the trail" the path is all back for cyclists up placing in the trail 13 to Schlanders/Silandro. On this stretch is again necessary tolerance, because here also hikers walk.
The slope of Monte Sole mountain steep slopes near the trails and glades leave to see the apple orchards and the amazing surrounding mountains. The stretch of trail constructed, 550 meters downhill, always has a width of 80 cm thus offering security to beginners and space speed and jumps to experts. Good technique on the curves and "nose press" in the narrow curves for all those who do not want to get off the saddle.
The Propain Trail is located on Monte Sole di Schlanders - an area with a fascinating flora and fauna and unexpected views. Our tip: take time to ride up by bike and discover with each altitude the varied landscape - from apple orchards, vineyards to steppes and picturesque setting.
Information: from authorization to completion the Propain Trail was built in just three months, demonstrating that the municipality of Silandro and the Tourism Association Silandro-Lasa want a good joint utilization of Sun Mountain by the two groups: hikers and cyclists. The rest of the trail 14 and trail 7 are reserved for hikers.
The bikeschool vinschgauBIKE has had the contract for the construction and maintenance, and conducts guided tours and technical training as well as shuttle service to the trail.
