Lou Viage: Stage 7 Pontebernardo - Rifugio della Gardetta

da Pietraporzio a Canosio (13,10 km)
Highlights and tour details

Leave Pontebernardo in a westerly direction going back up the SS 21 for a short stretch. Avoid the Barricate tunnel by following the old route of the state road that passes through the spectacular gorge and following two more hairpin bends you reach the beginning of the GTA path on the right, which goes back up the Fonda dell'Oserot, firstly reaching the Serre houses (1496 m) and then the ruins of Servagno (1736 m). You carry on up in a north-easterly direction on the GTA path which then turns decisively northwards and leads first to the gias dell'Oserot, then to the homonymous lake (2305 m) and then to the former military road. Proceeding to the right you reach Passo di Rocca Brancia (2620 m); from here you follow the carriageway on the left reaching Passo della Gardetta (2431 m) and then, on the right, you descend to the homonymous refuge (2335 m).
