HOW TO REACH THE STARTING POINT

The MTB itinerary starts from the square of the former Cesuna station, a large place to park the car and unload your mountain bikewithout problems. From the square take the climb that leads to the main road to Asiago. At theintersection at the Sports Bar, turn left and head straight towards the Church of Cesuna. After passing the Church, continue towards the place called "Pannochio". This road is the old connection between the hamlet of Cesuna and Treschè Conca.

 

DESCRIPTION OF THE ITINERARY

The road, after having climbed with awide view of the Asiago Plateau,descends to the first houses of Treschè. Here, on the left you will find a sports field,pass it and go down to an underpass that crosses the state road to Treschè Conca. From here it is necessary to continue towards the church which is located on the top of a climb about 1 km long. At the church there is a roundabout on which to turn left in the direction of Fort Corbin.
The paved road climbs with a steep but not extreme slope, passing through Malga Ronchetto. Attention:after a few hundred meters, leave out the main road and turn right following the signs for the Val di Gevano. Theindication for this direction is not very visible because it is written on a boulder resting on the ground. The dirt road crosses this small valley with pleasant views.

Continue straight for about 1.5 km leaving out a side to the right that indicates the direction towards the Corbin Fort,a place that will be the second destination of this itinerary. At the end of this stretch you will cross the asphalt of the road that leads to Monte Cengio. Turn right and go up until you arrive, first at Piazzale Principe di Piemonte,and then, after a short descent to rifugio Granatieri.

From the Rifugio Granatieri it is possible to continue for another 500 meters making a couple of hairpin bends, to get to Piazzale Pennella. Here you can leave your mountain bike and continue on foot to the top of Monte Cengio (5 minutes) to admire the view overlooking the plain.


Monte Cengio is a sacred place to the homeland: during the First World War it was the last bastion of defense against the attack of the Austro-Hungariantroops. Here theItalian army suffered huge losses to stop the enemy's advance towards the plain.

Back to the square, with the bike strictly by hand, those who want can take the perching road that starts from the square with a tunnel,   making a sheer path until you reach just a few meters below the Granatieri Hut.
Reassembled on the mountain bike, from the Rifugio Granatieri return to piazzale Principe di Piemonte then turn left for Pra delle Pozze and then towards the farmhouse Malga Roccolo.

Follow the descent and then the ups and downs,leaving out the side streets that meet until you cross the road that leads to the Corbin Fort.

Turn left and continue, always remaining on the main road for about 2 km, until you reach the Fort.
The fort can be visited after purchasing the entrance ticket. There is also a small museum and dining options.

After the visit, we resume the road back retracing the last stretch. Crossed the junction from where you had previously arrived, continue straight until you reach the church of Treschè Conca.

From the church, go back down and take the highway that leads to Asiago. At the roundabout take a dirt road to the right that leads to the two tunnels of the old train road.
Past the tunnels you are in Cesuna,near the Baita Jok and at the starting square.
