The route | Veneto Trail 2024

The Veneto Trail 2024 will start in Cittadella, Saturday 22nd of June at 08:00 a.m.

Each Veneto Trail includes a mix of dirt roads, trails, single-track and secondary paved roads that varies from edition to edition, trying to remain the right compromise between a noteworthy adventure and a not too challenging route. Check out the preview of the new route below...

Iscrizioni aperte fino al 1 Maggio 2024!

The route of the 9th edition of the Veneto Trail will bring you around the Veneto region for about 500 km, with 10500 m of elevation gain. The loop begins and ends in the medieval walled town of Cittadella (PD).

The 2024 route will be counter-clockwise, as was the case so far for the 2016 edition only, thus allowing access to numerous new climbs and sections.

The first short climb will be to the lovely town of Asolo, followed by a continuous alternation of paths and dirt roads through the wine-growing areas of Prosecco and the lakes of Revine, later reaching Lake Santa Croce.

The first part of the Veneto Trail, as you may have guessed looking at the altimetry, will be faster than usual, lacking long climbs such as those of Mt. Grappa or Asiago Plateau present in the last editions. The idea is that this route will offer more of a crescendo towards the heart of the route: the Dolomites.

Longer and more demanding climbs will only begin after km 160, near Auronzo di Cadore. After climbing the Passo Sant'Antonio and some picturesque valleys, you will almost touch the Austrian border, near Col Quaternà (2503 m a.s.l.), enjoying a splendid view of Monte Popera and the Sexten Dolomites.

The route will then enter Alto-Adige (Südtirol), approaching Sesto (Sexten) and San Candido (Innichen) and continuing south to Cortina d'Ampezzo, along the famous Dolomites cycle path.

Here begins another memorable ascent that leads to the Cinque Torri and Forcella Averau (2436 m a.s.l.). Despite the portage section, you will have incredible views all around you.

Descending from Forcella Averau through another new stretch around Monte Pore, the track heads to Selva di Cadore and then up to Col dei Baldi, circumnavigating the part of the Civetta that leads towards Val di Zoldo, until reaching Rifugio Bruto Carestiato.

The trail will then descend to Agordo to travel in the opposite direction (compared to last editions) through the Valle del Mis, within the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park. Having crossed Belluno Valley and the town of Feltre, you will only have the last mountain to climb: Monte Grappa!

Once you reach the top accompanied by a panorama that on clear days reaches as far as Venice, you can finally enjoy the last long descent. From Bassano del Grappa, all that remains is a relaxing twenty kilometres off road along the Brenta river to return to Cittadella.
