Details

Description

The route to the Passo della Prasignola follows a steep but well-marked path up to the Prasignola Pass, continuing on the northern slope and then descending into the Madristal valley. The last stretch of this long crossing follows an agricultural track that ends at the village of Cröt, where it joins the main road of the Avers.

Geheimtipp

It can be combined into a two-day excursion, with return from Val Bergalga or from Roda Pass.

Sicherheitshinweis

Long and uphill route, start early in the morning

Ausrüstung

Water, hiking boots

Directions

From Soglio, follow the footpath up to the Prasignola Pass, past the Dair and Leira alpine pastures. After the top of the pass (2724 m), the descent begins on the other side through the short valley of Prasignola. The path remains on the left side of the valley and after a series of 300 steps, crosses the torrent of Val da Roda on a footbridge. Beyond the stream, you meet the path that comes down from the Pass da Roda. A little further down, one reaches the plateau of the alp La Sovrana, where the agricultural road begins, which leads through the whole long Madristal. The road is traffic-free, so you have to go on foot, passing the dam of Preda (1951 m) and the small settlements of Städtli and Hohenhaus (1800 m), until you reach the village of Cröt (1715 m), where there is a post bus connection, several restaurants and lodgings.
