Decauville, Arnoga - Cancano
Arnoga in Valdidentro - Cancano
This route stretches out on the old service road of the Azienda Elettrica Milanese (Milan Power Company) once used for the transport of the materials coming from Cancano dams. The tour is rather simple as it runs on a 10 km flow track and is for this reason suitable to everyone: families with children or to anybody who wants to ride with peace of mind while chatting with friends.read more
The panorama of the whole valley is granted, from Valdidentro to Bormio. You have a spectacular view from the Val Viola with its Corno di Dosde' to the Cima Piazzi, from the Monte Vallecetta to the Ortles-Cevedale group. This route is also used as the linking way of the itineraries between Cancano and Livigno areas to the ones of Val Viola and Val Verva at a remarkable height. We propose here also a final short ascent running on the road heading straight for the antique Torri di Fraele as well as for the inns nearby Scale and Cancano lakes.In Arnoga in Valdidentro (1880 m) you take the trail n. 195 going eastwards, you enter the Bosco della Breitina and then cross the brook coming down from the Valle del Foscagno. Nearby on the left you meet the trail n. 186, which comes from the Pass and goes steeply down to the right to San Carlo. You proceed on the main track, you come out of the wood, go past Alpe Morzaglia and get to Alpe Gattonino (1872 m), where you find another important crossroads provided with notice board and signposts: the dirt uphill road to the left takes you to Pian Vezzola, Trela and finally to Trepalle or if you want to Cancano lakes, while the same track (sign Way n. 186) slopes down to the right towards Sant'Antonio di Scianno in Valdidentro. Our route continues straight to the Cime di Plator's rocky massif. You cross Sant'Antonio wood and reach the crossroads (1867 m _ sign Way n. 199) on a wide paved road climbing up to the Torri di Fraele (1938 m), to the Lago delle Scale and finally to Cancano (1950 m).
