The route of the “fourth Stelvio”
The route meanders through the long Forcola valley, situated between the Cancano lakes and the Braulio valley with the Stelvio. The landscape, especially in the higher part, is moonlike, and the route is rich in history, as the area was a theatre of war during the First World War: in the mountains around Bocchetta della Forcola, the trenches and military installations are still preserved.
The average gradient is steep, with long stretches, after the Malga, exceeding 15% on very uneven and pebbly terrain: you might therefore need to be prepared to use medium-high motor assist. From the Bocchetta you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Stelvio glaciers and the Ortler group and you can also see the start of the steep trail that descends to the Umbrail Pass (Giogo di Santa Maria).
A few technical tips
The entire route is practicable by bike. On the Umbrail descent, which is also on a trail, there are some more tricky sections and a few obstacles that must be overcome on foot. The rest of the route is on forest or military roads that are suitable for vehicles, so you can ride your e-bike without any problems.
The steepest incline you will encounter is at Boscopiano. The military roads up to Colle di Pedenolo are fairly easy. To get to the Stelvio, a 30% gradient will give you a hard time, but after about 500 metres the road becomes more approachable.
