The Dolomites are very steep and you need to be in great aerobic condition to ride up these Mt. passes. The trail gets too steep to ride up at times. Coming down is always exciting. Unfortunately, it only takes about 1/4 the time coming down so the fun is short-lived.

From Fiames go on the old railroad trail South until you reach Ospitale. Go past the railway station and then go right. The road gets very steep and you will climb about 1000m until reaching the Passo de Forca. Follow the steep road down to the Passo Tres Crocu, and then take the paved road back to Cortina.

Dobaccio, 30 km to the North of Cortina has an excellent trail called the "Superbike" trail which is well marked and makes a great 30 km afternoon ride. At least there are a few stretches of fun single track to play on.

Last year, we've been riding a week around Cortina d'Ampezzo. There are a lot of challenging, beautiful trails around cortina. We bought an italian book that contained road books of the region, it was very helpful because there are only few marked tours. The book was written by "Umberto da Col", I've forgotten the title, but if you go to cortina, make sure you try to find it because the very best of the region in in the trails of this book.
If you start riding around without such a guide, you'll find yourself walking and climbing a lot, the tracks are quite radical and not always rideable.
To me, Cortina is the best and the most radical of all European MTB spots that I have visisted.

This is not the best but sure enough a nice trail to ride. The climb is long and some times steep, the descent is short and fast with some interesting parts in it.
