    Description

    The mountain bike route to the village of Rasa in the Centovalli is a classic in the Locarno region, despite being technically very difficult. It captivates cyclists with a promising climb and long but demanding singletrails.

    The tour to the village of Rasa high above the Centovalli starts in Ascona near Locarno. From the town centre, go up to Monte Verità and follow the little road towards Ronco. In Porano you turn off onto the mountain road that leads round countless bends up to Pozzuolo, 1000 metres above Lake Maggiore. At the top, you will have to push the bike for the last few metres along a trail through the forest. A demanding singletrail now takes you high above the Centovalli towards Rasa. Experienced riders with some suspension on their bike have great fun here, while less experienced bikers have to walk every now and again. The village of Rasa is a small, completely restored hamlet, accessible only on foot or by a small mountain railway. The descent from Rasa to the Centovalli is either via Bordei, from where an asphalt road leads into the valley or on the more demanding trail from Rasa via Bosind and Cadalom to Salmina and Corcapolo. This route is extremely difficult and only recommended for cyclists with very good technique. From the bridge over the Melazza, the bike has to be carried up another 130 metres or so on the opposite side of the valley. The end of the tour is along the small road out of the Centovalli valley and along the Melezza and Maggia rivers back to Locarno.

    Alternatives: Instead from Rasa directly to Corcaplo, choose the route via Bordei and Palagnedra (the route will be much easier)
