From west to east, the Passo di San Pellegrino connects the Val di Fiemme (German: Fleimstal) with Alleghe and Agordo. Starting in Moena the pass road leaves the valley from the centre of the town to the east and is gaining height quickly on the hillside and then to strive in a 15% incline through the forest up the pass. The San Pellegrino is well known by the world wide distributed mineral water which is not originated in the area of the Passo di San Pellegrino but just gave the name for it.

On top of the pass you will find everything what a traveller required for his journey from the mountain bike shop to the hotel, everything you can buy for money. One can see very quickly that this pass is mainly set for winter tourism. In winter those dealers up here just rent skis instead of mountain bikes. At the eastern end of the pass you’ll find the base station of a free-hanging cable car, which runs up to the Cima Booch (2.745m).

After the cable car station the road runs downhill very steep with sometimes up to 15% in very narrow but well-constructed serpentines to the valley and at about 2km you will hit a junction that will bring you up to Passo Valles when you take a right here. When you continue straight on the road you will ride through the village Falcade and Canale d'Agordo and end up in the village Cencenighe in the Agordo valley. From here you can then take a left towards the Passo di Falzarego and the Passo di Giau or take a right to the Passo Duran or Passo Cereda.r erreicht man links herum den Falzaregopass und Passo Giau und rechts herum den Passo Duran und Passo Cereda.
