The hay road

DifficultyEasy Length3.480 m Time1 hour and 15 min.

This is an easy walk which is almost flat, without any difficulties and ideal for families with children and push chairs. Not far from the village it offers interesting nature points, with a beautiful view of Mount Pelmo. At Pecol, from the Crèp cable car’s large car park head south, passing below the garage and the warehouses of the Valzoldana chairlifts (Società Seggiovie Valzoldana) where a wide path sets off to meet up with the Schirata forestry road, which descends towards the Maè stream and follows it on its orographic right side (take care at the junction to keep left heading towards the valley bottom and do not climb up along path number 585).

Once you reach the beautiful old houses and hay loft of De la de l’Aiva, which you pass on the right (the road on the left leads back to the centre of Maresòn, 1.334m, where the beautiful onion-shaped bell tower of St. Valentine’s church stands out), continue along the trail till you reach Palma (1.300m, roughly 30 minutes). From here you will find a restaurant pizzeria, and in the wide grassy hollow, beside the Ski Civetta ski lift you will find some games set up for children. To return to Pecol follow for a short way the road which leads to Pianaz, road no. 251.

Shortly after the bridge which crosses the Maè torrent turn left along the path which runs along the orographic left hand side of the torrent and which goes around the village of Mareson. Continue along the dirt road and then along the state road till you reach la Grava, where you will find an old disused saw mill and an old restructured oven where once the lime was burned and used to build the houses of Mareson and Pècol. Turning towards the left, west, cross Rio Canèdo and the Maè torrent and take the path which climbs up to the square around the cable car (1h and 15 mins).
