Take the biking trail towards Dobbiaco.

When the paved road ends, continue straight for 200 metres, then descend on your left along a narrow dirt road.

A long level stretch, running parallel to the bike trail, leads to an underpass crossing beneath the state road. Turn right and shortly after you reach the shore of the Boite river.

The clear waters of the river and the crown of the surrounding peaks call for a stop to appreciate the scenic beauty of the area.

A few minutes ride takes you to the “Spiaggia Verde” rest stop, featuring a playground for children.

Continue slightly uphill, ride past the Info Point of the Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites and just a few metres further on, a stop is worth to enjoy the awe-inspiring sight of the Rio Felizon gorge.

Get back on your bike, turn left downhill and cross a scenic little bridge over the Boite river.

Ride along the hydrographic left-hand side of the river, through a fairy-tale forest. After a short uphill stretch, continue as far as the Olimpia camping site before leaving the forest.

Turn left, cross the bridge and the state road is a few hundred meters ahead.

Pay attention in crossing the road. Take the trail through the forest and ride slightly uphill to reach the bike trail to return to Cortina.
