Description

The Strada dell’Assietta, which connects the Susa Valley with Val Chisone, is divided into large dirt roads along the ridge, which rise and fall frequently and envelope ancient fortifications of military origin, and a low-lying valley that passes through the awe-inspiring Strada dei Cannoni, located inside Parco Naturale del Gran Bosco in Salbertrand. The surface of this course ranges from firm to rocky, passing across the exposed roots of evergreen trees. This route departs from, and ends in, Sestriere.
