Ancient paths around Acceglio

Ancient paths around Acceglio

The starting point of this simple excursion is just above the square in front of the Acceglio tourist office. The excursion begins with a slight ascent covering a short stretch in the wood up to the bridge over the Rio Mollasco.

Now cross the provincial road to take the path on the left that runs alongside the Maira stream, and follow it following its clear path up to Ponte Maira. After crossing the village, the path goes up the opposite side of the valley until it crosses the Percorsi Occitani and then continues north-east, on an ancient stretch that was used by farmers and continues until it crosses the Bordella grange (1679 m). Continue up to the Brisset grange and further up to the Cruset grange (1785m).

From here, continuing downhill towards the south, you first reach the Colombata grange (1585 m) and then Lausetto. Ignoring the possible deviations to the right for the Villaro hamlet, continue in a south-easterly direction to pass the Grange Bargia and descend again until you return to the bridge over the Rio Mollasco. From here, following the outward route, you will return to the starting point.

From the Grange Bordella it is possible to follow a mule track that leads to the church of San Maurizio and then rejoins the hamlet of Lausetto.
