Just two weeks after the Enduro World Series came to Finale Ligure to stage the final round of the season we continued our series of trips to Finale. This splendid, complete package that Finale has to offer is simply hard to beat: besides the unique Trail network with its flowy, roller-coaster-like trails there are nice beaches, cool cafes, good restaurants, plenty of shops, historic buildings, organic olive oil plantations, fantastic ice cream and much more to excite the whole family.
The local committee to maintain and develop the trails has done an outstanding job over the last years and has shaped or reshaped numerous purpose built trails. There are plenty of alternatives when you start your descent at the NATO-base or from Melogno.
The Kill Bill lines down to Calice Ligure are a thrilling alternative to the Caprazoppa Trails to finalize a tour from Melogno to Finale. Kill Bill is a sort of climax to the Roller Coaster Trail from Melogno as it is even steeper and tighter.
The Supergroppo Trail starts from the old NATO-Base but is longer than the other runs and includes as well some uphill parts. It was built in 2014 and served as an epic stage in the Enduro World Series race. Altogether 11 km of beautifully flowing singletrack trail that ends in Orco Feglino.
I have the strong feeling that this wasn’t my trip to Finale Ligure…
