Lou Viage: Stage 14 Rifugio Malinvern - Vinadio

Vinadio (16,70 km)
Highlights and tour details

You leave the refuge on the dirt road that, heading north, descends the Riofreddo valley. After about a 40-minute walk, the road becomes paved. Pass the ENEL dam and just below the imposing concrete dike at an altitude of about 1080 m, turn right onto the road that goes up towards the reservoir. Go past the stream and at the second hairpin bend, at the beginning of the covered service walkway to the dam, leave it and take an easy forest track on the left. You shortly reach Fort Serziera, (1244 m), built at the end of 1880 along with Fort Albertino and the Neghino gun battery to complete the barrage of Valle Stura. From the fort, go briefly up the former military road and when you arrive at a fork on the right, take it and start descending. After few kilometres you come to the Destra Stura road, cross the iron bridge and you then shortly enter Vinadio (904 m).
