GTA: Stage 8C Riale - Nufenenpass

da Formazza a Bedretto (Switzerland) (11,50 km)
Highlights and tour details

Follow the little road that goes up to the Morasco dam and runs along the lake. At the departure point of the cable car, a path that is still paved in some sections goes up to Alpe Bettelmatt, the production area of the homonymous and renowned cheese. From the alp a rather steep path leads to Passo del Gries. You continue along the hillside, skirting Lago del Gries to the dam area, where a small service road begins that you follow for two hairpin bends. Continue to the right along a short hillside stretch arriving on the Nufenenpass road.
