From Soglio over a historic pass to the village of Cröt
From Soglio, the trail leads for the first few kilometres through the forest to Alp Däir. Here the character of the tour changes and over steep pastures and gravel fields the path climbs up to the Pass da la Prasognola. In former times, the alps of Val Madris north of the pass belonged to Soglio. The animals had to be led over the pass every year to reach their summering area. The stone steps are a reminder of the hard work that was required... Today, flocks of sheep graze up here, protected against wolfs by guard dogs. The descent is less steep and between the Sovräna alp buildings and Cröt , the road follows the Ägua da Madris stream on the flat valley floor.
The hike can be combined into a two-day excursion, with return from Val Bergalga, via the Roda Pass and the Pass da la Duana.
Long route with large difference in altitude, start early in the morning...
Water, hiking boots
From Soglio, follow the footpath to the Prasignola Pass, past the Dair and Leira alpine pastures. After the top of the pass (2724 m), the descent begins through the short valley of Prasignola. On a wooden bridge you cross the stream from the Val da Roda and meet the path coming down from the Pass da Roda. A little further down, you reach the plain of Alp La Sovräna, where the agricultural road begins that leads through the long Madristal valley to Cröt (1715 m). In Cröt there is a restaurant, sleeping facilities and a post bus stop.
