How to get there

From the motorway exit AOSTA OVEST turn right onto the national road n. 47 to Cogne. From the main village, continue for about 3km to the Gimillan hamlet where you can leave your car. In Gimillan there are also other interesting tracks for snowshoes.

Short and panoramic excursion. The favourable exposure to the sun and the minimal difference in altitude make this a pleasant itinerary to enjoy a half day on the snow.

An easy ring path without danger and an with an excellent exposure to the sun alternating stretches in the woods to magnificent views. T
he trail starts out in the northern part of the Gimillan village where you find a panel at the beginning of the track. Once arrived at a small chapel continue straight on along the torrent.

In a short time, and after enjoying enchanting views on the Gran Paradiso chain and on the Grivola peak you return to the starting point.
