MTB trails in Finale Ligure:
The Altopiano delle Manie plateau extends into the hinterland of Finale Ligure, behind Varigotti.
The route of the “24hrs of Finale” winds through this plateau (download the GPS track) and passes from easy-riding sections deep in the greenery to technical single-tracks overlooking the sea, with breathtaking views.
For those who love All Mountain, there are several single-tracks that descend the slopes of Varigotti and Noli: Ponti Romani, La Briga and the most famous descents of Finale Ligure DH Men and DH women.
Behind Final Marina lies S.Bernadrino, full of tracks characterised by slabs of rock that make them unique and often uneven ground, for lovers of technical driving, including Dolmen, Ruggetta and Ca del Vacche.
CAPRAZOPPA / BORGIO VEREZZI
The west side of Finale Ligure is abutted by Caprazzoppa, a steep hill that conceals several XC – AM itineraries and a “Hard” trail, reminiscent of Bondi and Xmen.
PIAN DEI CORSI / BASE NATO
Going deeper into the hinterland, you come across Colle del Melogno hill. The eastern side is called Pian dei Corsi and it is a Freeride paradise. Some itineraries for passionate cyclists ascend the entire hill, involving a difference in altitude exceeding 1000 metres, before descending to the valley in one fell swoop by the various trails taking you to Finalborgo or Feglino. Base Nato, Madre Natura, Ingegnere and Crestino are just some of the many that characterise this area.
Some very long and enjoyable trails start from the top of the Melogno. Descent is via the Isallo and Calice Ligure slopes. Various XC and AM itineraries are possible, along with some Freeride descents: Toboga, Rollercoaster, Cacciatori and Kill Bill
And after a day on the bike, you can relax in the charming medieval village of Finalborgo, sampling a typical Ligurian aperitif, or you can relax on the beach and enjoy a sunset by the sea sipping your beer, well deserved after a day on the fantastic trails of this paradise.
