Alta Via Canavesana: Stage 2: Alpe Soglia - Salvin Refuge

da Corio a Monastero di Lanzo (12,10 km)
Highlights and tour details

From Rifugio Alpe Soglia, continue along the dirt road backwards to Alpe Soglia at 1720 m; instead of retracing the outward path from here to the crest, turn left along the Tre Vallate track, on a grassy dirt road to Alpe Turinetto at 1818 m where the dirt road becomes a path that climbs up to join the Alta Via Canavesana crest path coming from Monte Soglio. You reach a high-tension pylon and crossing the mountainside, you arrive at a depression and the base of the south ridge of Uja, where you will find the ruins of the homonymous alp at 2026 m. Continue slightly downhill (signs for the spring) as far as some quartz rocks, when the path begins to climb halfway up the mountainside, crossing some detrital stretches. You will then reach Bric Volpat at 2038 m and then, almost always along the crest with some ascents and descents, Colle della Croce d'Intror at 1950 m (2.00 hours from Monte Soglio). From Colle della Croce d'Intror, go along the crest to reach Cima dell'Angiolino at 2168 m and Monte Vaccarezza at 2203 m immediately afterwards. Remaining on the crest, you shortly come to Monte Croass at 2155 m and then descend along a steep grassy slope to Alpe Pertus. From the junction with the 408/A road, go down towards the hamlet of Salvini in Monastero di Lanzo, where you can spend the night and eat at the Salvin Refuge/Holiday Farmhouse.
