Itineraries

All the roads and trails of Gran Bosco di Salbertrand Park are mainly recommended for the summer. During the winter, many itineraries do not guarantee adequate safety levels. Therefore, before taking a trail with snow or ice, it is recommended to check its practicability by contacting the staff of the Park Authority, the manager of D. Arlaud Mountain Hut, and the weather-snow bulletins.

Hiking Itineraries

The Park is crossed by a thick network of hiking trails, for all needs and skills, developing from the valley bottom to the watershed with Val Chisone and crossing the protected area from the east to the west. All the dirt roads are closed to motor vehicles and can be followed on foot, by bike, with the skis or with snow rackets. Some trails are of international importance (Via Alpina, the Roads of the Waldensians) or national importance (the Great Traverse of the Alps or Via Francigena), others are extremely significant to discover the environmental, historical, and cultural features of the territory (Self-guided Nature Trails, 14 Itineraries of Gran Bosco by the Park Keepers). They are all well-marked and periodically maintained by the Park Authority. According to the Park regulations (L.R. no.16/1991), it is not allowed to abandon the marked trails.

The Ecomuseum Route

Between the town of Salbertrand and Gran Bosco Park, a ring-route of about 7 km (walking time: about 2 hours) develops. It touches structures and ancient buildings witnessing the religiousness and the material culture of the community of Salbertrand and of the whole Valley of Upper Dora.
The watermill, the community oven, the 19th century ice house, the charcoal pile, the ruins of the old lime kilns, the forest site, the Parish Church and its treasures, the frescoed chapel of the Annunciation, the site dedicated to the Grand Rentrée of the Waldensians tell us centuries of history and exploitation of the territorial resources and represent demonstration points of the production activities carried out according to traditional methods.
