Lou Viage: Stage 18 Stiera - Station of Borgo San Dalmazzo

da Gaiola a Borgo San Dalmazzo (11,00 km)
Highlights and tour details

You leave Stiera on the dirt road that descends towards the river Stura. At the crossroads, turn left and, skirting it, you will soon reach a pedestrian bridge that allows you to cross to the opposite bank. The dirt road continues alongside the river and then goes up. In a hairpin bend a small road leads to the provinciale 337 di destra Stura road, turn right and then left to Bedoira (738 m). Once you have crossed the village towards the valley, take an asphalt road after the last houses on the right reserved for pedestrians and cyclists. At Tetti Lunghe you arrive at a crossroads where you turn right, starting to go up through a chestnut wood. You do the same at the next crossroads and the forest track continues with some hairpin bends and reaches a ciabot (a little building). You continue to climb; the track becomes a path and, passing near a small concrete construction, it comes out in a meadow and reaches a dirt road that leads to Tetti Avvocato. Continuing on asphalt you pass Tetti Tendias (960 m) and reach the road that descends towards Borgo San Dalmazzo. Proceed to the left and after about 150 metres, turn left again on a dirt road; just beyond an isolated house turn right and after about twenty minutes you come out on the asphalt road again. Continue left towards the nursing home and a few dozen metres beyond the entrance to the clinic you leave the asphalt road to go slightly uphill to the right, reaching the ridge. You pass a pylon and go down to the Monserrato Sanctuary car park. After a stop to admire the church and the panorama, return to the junction of the path and you will find the signs for the descent down Via Rivetta and from there, left to the Borgo San Dalmazzo train station.
