Alpe di Tires
Alpe di Tires (Tierser-Alpl) is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.456m (8,057ft) above the sea level, located in the Dolomites mountain range, in the South Tyrol province of north Italy.
Located within the Parco Naturale Sciliar-Catinaccio, this infamous gravel road to the summit is bumped. It is subject to winter snowfalls with such a high summit altitude, and it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. Make sure you get your vehicle and yourself well-prepared before driving this road.
4wd vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Proper preparation is essential to having a safe, enjoyable trip on this road. At the summit there’s a mountain refuge inaugurated in 1963 known as Tierser-Alpl-Hütte (Rifugio Alpe di Tires). Special driving authorization is required.
