It's moto, but I think the consequences of a mistake are much more severe. The "trail" is a pass between Italy and Austria that was used to transport people/supplies undetected during WW II.

I'd always understood that they were constructed in WW1 when Italy and Austria were opposing sides and were used to run ammunition to field guns. In some places there are tunnels where they bored right through a mountain to place a gun to cover a valley. Walking along the valley side they would have been shot to bits.
Some of the bits around Pasubio in the Dolomites are like that. Damn scary. When I rode it (much wider bits, you can get a jeep up) I was glad I had upgraded from cantis to Maguras a fortnight earlier.
