Naranch Trail is a classic enduro trail, physically challenging (difficulty is 7/10), that offers spectacular scenery. It is perfect for those looking for downhill runs on natural technical trails.
This is the most accessible enduro trail in all of Garda Trentino. Good steering technique and confidence on steep downhill runs is essential.
The first part, as far as Maso Naranch, is fairly wide and easy. The first stretch is more a single trail for about 400 metres which, then widens out more than a metre for 800 metres. Just before the Maso there is the only rock Garden section which you should evaluate before taking it on.
Below Maso the trail is narrower and full of narrow bends with natural footholds, most of it in a little valley between two ridges and coming out onto a tarmac road which leads to Nago.
The trails all runs through the woods on not too rocky flow terrain.
