The 749/749A trail is the King of all the trails of the Natisone Valleys: 12 km of natural trail that starts straight from the top of Mount Matajur to reach a valley near Sorzento, after more than 1,450 m of negative altitude.

The trail is varied: the initial part is rocky and very challenging for the rider and his/her bike. After passing the meadows before the Glevizza pass, the trail continues with a very flowy central part with some technical passages in counter-slope.

After the slight ascent at the San Canziano pass, the final part of the trail is 100% fun. You will find some rock gardens and the “Sorzy” mini-trail with easy yet exciting jumps.

The ground is mostly made of clay, therefore in case of humidity it is very demanding and not recommended for inexperienced riders.

The 749/749A trail is suitable for Enduro and Gravity, not recommended for beginners.
