Melogno’s secular beech woods

It often happens to associate Finale Ligure with freeride: in the thoughts of the bikers the Colle del Melogno is the departure of many of the most famous single-track in the world (Roller Coaster, Kill Bill, La Madonna della Guardia to name a few), we will take you with this tour to experience the territory in a different way, along the farm roads that run through its enchanted beech woods.

The tour begins in the beating heart of Finale Ligure, the medieval village of Finalborgo: a borderland for the Romans (its name derives from Burgum Finarii, a borderland), the administrative center of the Marquisate del Carretto in the Middle Ages, now it is a point reference for bikers worldwide.

From the medieval capital of the Marquisate of Finale, we will begin to advance inland towards Orco along the path of the Neviere, an ancient path that departed from Melogno and allowed to bring the ice in the village to keep it for the summer.

Once you have reached the Orco hermitage, the scenery will start to change, assuming the typical connotations of the Finale hinterland: limestone and Mediterranean stain are the masters. Following a farm road that furrows the valley floor, we will reach the Alta Via Ligure. Here we could go into secular beech woods, a unique and magical environment.

The tour will end with the return to Finalborgo, on private roads or single-track depending on the level of the participants in the tour.
