Anello Ceronda: Stage 2 Vallo Torinese - Col del Lys

da Vallo Torinese a Viù (16,88 km)
Highlights and tour details

Departing from the centre of Vallo Torinese (535 m) you go up to the Chapel of San Rocco (594 m). You take the path no. 045 on the left that becomes panoramic and continues along the hillside above the villages of Vallo Torinese and Varisella until you reach, after a stretch in the woods, the little village of Ramai (590 m). After crossing the village, still typical of the rural settlements of Val Ceronda, continue by fording the Rio Creus to meet the village of Moncolombone (568 m), also with typical features and surrounded by lush woods. Then take the rural track that reaches the equipped area near one of the tributaries flowing from the source of the stream. After crossing the bridge, continue westwards on path no. 048 to reach Cascina Filiè (636 m). On the service dirt road for the municipal aqueduct, go up the wide final valley of Valle del Ceronda where it is possible to appreciate, besides the panorama, the characteristic geological conformations of the peridotite stones, a very rare case of outcropping rocks of the mantle. Once you reach the pass (1515 m) near Bal Masche (the Masche are characters of local legends similar to witches), cross the ridge descending towards the Colle Lunella (1372 m) and then cut in a northerly direction and descend to the village of San Vito (1237 m) where there is the unmanaged Rifugio San Vito, a possible stop-off point. Continuing along the dirt road you reach the Colle del Lys (1310 m) and the stop-off point of the private hiking refuge.
