Dos della Croce path

Leave your car at the Trivigno Basso car park, take the path and soon you will reach the church of S. Gaetano. Here cross the road, go up and take the first turning on your left.

Here the path ascends; follow directions for Monte Padrio. The fir and larch wood alternates with clearings until you reach the path leading up to Mount Padrio. Keep to your right here and descend towards the path which in the summer leads to Guspessa and Mortirolo.

You'll soon reach the cross country ski cottage before descending towards the church of S. Gaetano and the starting point of the ring.
Fitter walkers can continue eastwards along the snow covered path, towards a panoramic point of unique beauty.


Normal equipment for excursions in the snow, snowshoes, poles or shoe chains.
