    Description
    Alpe Cardada (Locarno)
    Description

    The Cimetta is the «local mountain» of Locarno and, along with the Alpe Cardada, boasts one of the classic mountain bike routes of Ticino. The route is considered one of the smoothest in the rugged surroundings of the Sopra Ceneri.

    From Locarno train station, cross the Piazza Grande and cycle through the historic town to the road to Orselina. You will make your first ascent on this road before turning off towards Monte Bre. Wind your way up the mountain, round countless bends, to the idyllic resort of Monte Brè, 800 metres above Locarno. Follow the gravel road until it becomes a forest trail at the edge of the woods below the Cimetta. Here you turn right onto a trail and have to push the bike along a path through the forest to just below the summit of the Cimetta. The descent begins when you reach the first houses. You pass the Alpe Cardada and then follow the singletrail to Orecco via Pianca and Resa. From here, you are going slightly downhill (almost) all the time, past Brione until you reach Orselina and then continuing onto the mountain road towards Monte Bre. The final few metres back to Locarno are either on the road or via one of the many long, steep flights of steps.
