Lou Viage: Stage 10 Ferrere - Pietraporzio

da Argentera a Pietraporzio (15,40 km)
Highlights and tour details

From Ferrere you walk in the direction of Colle del Ferro. As soon as you enter the valley of the Rio Forneris, leave path P45 and go down towards the stream on the left and cross it. Ignore the path on the left that leads to Becco Rosso and then to Pontebernardo and continue on the right towards Colle di Stau. You descend from here to Prati del Vallone (1750m), first on a path then on a small road, where you will find Rifugio Talarico and the Regina delle Alpi holiday home, which are the departure points for some interesting hikes. The descent of the valley is on a former military road, first unpaved then paved, which leads to Pontebernardo in about an hour. Once at the hamlet of Pietraporzio you enter the village and from Piazza Ubac you go down on the right along via Bacias. Once you reach the SS 21 you cross it and after crossing the stream of Prati del Vallone you take the easy forest track, skirting the river Stura to reach Pietraporzio (1246m).
