Nature Trip - DESERTA LANGARUM


EveryTrail - Find technical details of all trips by Deserta Langarum


The “NATURE” path (FUCHSIA color) is the shortest among the paths maintained by the DESERTA LANGARUM Association. 



Starting from APPOINTMENT STONE  (PIETRA DELL’APPUNTAMENTO) (at km 2.3 of the SP352 CN, in the municipality of Torresina (44 26 '22.60'' N - 8 01' 14.97'' E), just follow the signs in fuchsia that show the message "Deserta Langarum - SENTIERI ", without any danger of getting lost. 



It’s a ring that runs almost entirely on the territory of the municipality of Igliano, within the forests of chestnut trees and conifers on dirt road (only a few meters of asphalt!) easy to go on foot, by bike or on horseback. It's not absolutely tiring: to pace touristic takes less than 1 hour walk on foot for a distance of 3200 m. 



Altimetrically the highest point is the start / finish (alt. 701 m) and the lowest, near the village of Igliano, is 560 m. 



Charming by the naturalistic point of view, you can see all the typical vegetation of the Alta Langa. Interesting are the two fountains that are on the path (Fontana Monasterola at the progressive 2100 m and Fontana Boscogrande at 2500 m). Extremely relaxing and balsamic for the path in the woods: cool in summer and beautiful in other seasons!

At the start, go down to the equipped area of the Appointment in the woods, where our association organizes its own events (check out the updated calendar on the Events section!).

After crossing that area, turn right and go down to the house Paludina, farm uninhabited for over sixty years, immersed in an oasis of calm. Now the path degrades more slowly through the woods until you reach near the village of Igliano. We walk to the left 50 meters of asphalt and climb along the meadows for 500 meters of arduous climb, where you can bump into a herd of docile grazing cows.

Now turn left at the Fountain Monasterola and go back in the woods, here the wildlife is wild and it is not unusual to see deer, foxes, wild boars, badgers, squirrels and a lot of birds. Climb up to the Fountain Boscogrande, leaving it on the right and cross the nice forest to retrace our steps to the Appointment in the woods and finally to the starting point.
