Ponte Marmora – Chiappera connection

Ponte Marmora – Chiappera connection

Through various hamlets in the upper Maira valley and forest trails partially destined for winter cross-country skiing, you follow the course of the Maira stream to go up from Ponte Marmora to Chiappera.

From Ponte Marmora you run alongside the Maira on a dirt road that leads to Prazzo Superiore, where you then travel for about a kilometer on asphalt to Maddalena. Here you return to pedal near the stream to the hamlet of Frere, from where you can easily reach Acceglio. Afterwards, with a series of sometimes challenging climbs you reach Ponte Maira, Saretto, Crocetta and finally Chiappera,

The return follows the same path.
