The Foscagno Pass (2291 m asl) connects the Livigno valley with Valdidentro. This mountain pass is the only way to get to Livigno without travelling through Switzerland (through the Poschiavo valley and Forcola).
The Foscagno pass - to be enjoyed by racing bike - is not that difficult, but its length (about 24 km) and its slope should not be underestimated.
The starting point is Bormio (1225 m asl) and for about 8 km - up to Isolaccia (1345 m asl) - the slopes are gentle and not difficult to face.
That’s where the real climb begins: a regular slope inexorably takes cyclists to the pass.
The road is the one that connects Bormio and Livigno and traffic can be heavy, especially on weekends and in high season. Pay attention, please.
The average gradient of the slope is 5.5%, and a maximum gradient is 11%, The vertical drop is above 1000 m.
