Percorsi Occitani: Stage 11 Rifugio della Gardetta - Borgata Arata

da Canosio a Marmora (20,16 km)
Highlights and tour details

From Rifugio della Gardetta follow the easy dirt track that descends towards Canosio, among gentle depressions, to Colle del Preit (2076 m). From here you avoid the asphalt, keep to the right and shortly reach the grassy track that reaches the slopes of Rocca la Meja and regains altitude at Colle Margherina (2408 m) and Colle d'Ancoccia (2535 m). You walk once again along historical military roads and you can see bunkers and casemates among the rocky walls and on the most strategic summits. Turning left, now close to Colle del Mulo (2529 m), the view sweeps over the peaks of the Stura valley. Once over the Pass, a long descent along a path runs through the Marmora valley, skirting the lovely Lake Resile and through the larch trees it reaches the hamlets of Marmora, rich in architectural and artistic remains.
