The Seicentouno is a historic route on Mount Altissimo enjoyed by bikers since 1990, and its final stretch up to Busatte Park is now dedicated exclusively to MTBs.

From here, you’ll enjoy an incredible two kilometre descent that’s entirely free from loose stones and brushwood, with a rock garden, various new jumps and banks guaranteed to please all bikers, and a spectacular view of Lake Garda to boot!
