The descent of La Grosina is part of the Five Crazy Downs - a series of five descents for MTBs around Tirano.
This descent has exposed sections with steep slopes, but the rest of the way is smooth and fun.
The departure of the freeride route of La Grosina is from Grosio. By pedaling or with the bike shuttle you have to go up the Val Grosina up to Eita, on asphalt. This climb is very long and also has significant slopes (from Grosio there are more than 15 km with about 1000 m in altitude).
From Eita , continue with the climb and weigh it for about 40 minutes to reach the Redasco huts. At this point, a long high-altitude traverse begins that leads up to Cigoz.
You pedal still for a stretch until you reach a military road at an altitude of 2020 m. The descent begins.
The first stretch descends on a splendid and panoramic military road, which with a series of hairpin bends leads down towards Poda. The route then continues on mule tracks, even with steep slopes, until arriving near the castle of Grosio.
