Highlights and tour details

From Bosco Gurin you climb along the path that cuts through the alpine pasture track to the Capanna Grossalp mountain hut at 1907 m. From here the trail climbs steeply up to Guriner Furggu Pass (2323 m), from where the view extends over the wide pastures of the Bosco Gurin valley. The trail now goes onto the Italian side with a first steep downhill section and then it crosses a basin halfway up the hillside and climbs slightly up to the visible hill of Passo della Foglia, from where it overlooks the large valley that descends to Alpe Foglia and Foppiano. The path descends decisively on the steep slope from the pass, crosses a brook and then a ford after a stretch through the sparse wood. From here you continue the descent keeping on the right hydrographic slope and following the sparse trail signs in the pastures you reach Alpe Stivello (1609 m). At this point you follow the hairpin bends of the mule track that deviates to the right to the hamlet of Fondovalle. From here to the main town of Ponte follow the G00 "Via dello Sbrinz" trail signs for a long walk on the valley floor.
