Elba has an incredibly dense network of trails - you need accurate and up-to-date MTB trail maps for orientation. While other products show the whole island on a small map with large scale, outdated routes and without proper MTB classification, a completely new route has been taken here.

Based on 15 years of Elba riding and "hiking" experience, all currently accessible and navigable paths are now recorded in the Trailmaster and classified in color according to the single trail scale - on a super scale 1: 12500 - and where that's not enough with additional detailed maps 1: 7500 - 1:5000!

Due to the restrained coloring of the asphalt and gravel roads and the background topography, the Sentieri and coveted single trails with their contrasting colors can be clearly recognized. The well-known alpine color scheme was chosen for the main grades:

 

 S0 flat green    S1 easy - blue    S2 medium - red     S3 difficult  black    S4-S5 extreme magenta

 

Arrows on the trails lines show the main direction downhill and elevation points at prominent places make it easier to recognize the development in altitude, but there is additional information on high points, low points and saddle points.

Since 2018, the Sentieri of the Parco Nazionale Arcipelago Toscano / CAI have been redistributed and numbered, they are shown in full on the maps (red-white-red numbers).

The most famous single trails are put together and numbered to form complete, longer Singletrack runs. The enclosed four-language trackbook contains  87 single tracks with brief descriptions, technical difficulty, panoramic and overall ratings, structured according to the four island sectors and areas.

This includes all of the island's top trails such as

  • Westcost Freeride
