Cima Monte Tezio guida MTB escursioni Perugia Umbria

One of the most popular destination of the bikers from the area of Perugia is the top of Monte Tezio, which with its 960 m height rises between the Umbrian hills nearby representing the highest mountain in the northern area of Perugia. The itinerary can start on every side since it is completely surrounded by the unpaved road that covers the slope indeed called Monte Tezio Loop.

Our tour generally starts from the southern side in order to properly warm – up and climb on the not extreme but continuous ascent taking us up to the entrance of the Natural Park of Monte Tezio. From here the several numbered and charted paths stretch out. The most comfortable road is path 1 that after 10 hairpin turns leads us out of the vegetation up to the top where you can enjoy the whole Umbrian panorama, from the Trasimeno Lake on the western side, to the Monti Sibillini on the east. From here you can reach the Croce della Pieve and the Neviere, where already since 1600 the snow had been collected and stored for the Summer when it was transported to Perugia of that time. From here start several descents, each with its difficulty level, that take us back to our path or to the opposite side to where we climbed. We will end the itinerary getting back along the “canyons”, a path that crosses a real lunar landscape all the way to the starting point.
