Tour dell'Uja: Stage 2 Borgata Bracchiello - Alpe d’Attia

da Ceres a Ala di Stura (8,30 km)
Highlights and tour details

Departing from the village of Bracchiello, go along path no. 241, through a wooded area. The path goes up the Rio Crosiasse valley, with stretches on both banks until reaching the Crosiasse alpine pasture (1795 m). Continuing on path no. 241 you turn in a south-westerly direction to continue climbing until you reach the panoramic Colle d'Attia (2101 m). From this point a descent begins on trail no. 238, which leads to Alpe d'Attia where the stage ends and from where you can depart once again the following day. To reach the accommodation facilities where you can spend the night, you must descend for a further stretch along the south-facing waterway on trail no. 238 to reach Pian d'Attia where you will find the connection to the road. Alternatively you can take another stretch of the route on trail no. 236A from Alpe d'Attia, making a wide semi-circle to the west crossing the Rio Chianale valley to Alpe Serpeis (1603 m) where there is a carriage road. If contacted beforehand, one of the operators from the Municipality of Ala can meet the hikers at one of the meeting points to accompany them to the main town with their own means of transport and to the departure point the next day.
