Description

From San Bernardino you climb in the direction of Pian Lumbrif passing through the ski area of Pian Cales. From Pian Lumbrif continue in the direction of Cassina da Vignun which in summer is used by shepherds who take care of the livestock. From here the climb to the Strecc de Vignun is gentler with an exciting view of the valley and the Piz Uccello (2723 m).  Afterwards a steep descent takes the athletes to the Alp de Rog before following the path along the Val Curciusa. A short postbus ride allows for a comfortable and peaceful return to the starting point.
