Take the bike trail towards Dobbiaco.

When the paved stretch ends, continue straight for about 200 metres, turn right uphill and follow directions for Mietres – Larieto.

Once on top of the steep section we suggest taking a short detour to visit the highest vineyard in Europe.

The road levels up and continues alternating hairpins with long straight sections. At the “Cujinates” intersection, turn right and ride up the last very steep stretch where remaining on the bike is always a challenge. After a demanding descent, enjoy a leisurely ride on the fairly level section along the mountain footslopes as far as you spot Rifugio Mietres below you.

Stop at the Rifugio for a well deserved rest and enjoy the spectacular view from the panoramic deck.

The descent, along the dirt road that follows the former ski run, is rather steep and bumpy, especially the first stretch.

Another option is riding as far as Brite de Larieto and returning to Cortina along the SR48 road that descends from Passo Tre Croci.
