Alpe Foppa – Nágra – Piano di Mora

An alternative and more characteristic route to reach the intermediate station of the cable car along a path that winds largely through the forest

It initially crosses the Alpe Foppa pasture and then descends to the Trodo Valley coast, along a historic path through a beech wood.  This route runs along the upper part of the road used in the past by the villagers to load the Alpe Foppa, which is still active and produces various typical products, such as the award-winning Alpe cheese that can be eaten and purchased at the Alpe Foppa Restaurant. About halfway along the route you reach Nágra, where you can still see the fort having the same name, part of the Monte Ceneri Fortification built during the First World War. This fort, strategically located 400 m above Fort Spina, was intended to protect the coastline down from Monte Tamaro, between the Val Trodo and the Monti di Spina. From Nágra the trail continues along a level path towards the intermediate station of the cable car and then up a short forestry road to the Piano di Mora.

Main stops: Alpe Foppa (Mountain station of the cable car) – Nágra – Piano di Mora (intermediate station of the cable car)
