The nature park Parco naturale Val Troncea is located in Val Chisone, municipality of Pragelato in the Metropolitan City of Turin. The park was created in 1980 to preserve the natural environment.
The park is located between 1670 AMSL and 3.280 m AMSL. The highest point is the peak of the mountain Punta Rognosa di Sestriere. The river Chisone seeps at the very end of the valley, at the foot of Monte Barifreddo and runs through it until it reaches the river Pellice.
The nature park has a lot of hiking paths, both linking the different hamlets with each other, or the bottom of the valley with the mountains' peaks.
LandmarksIn the park can still be found old hamlets, representing the valley´s lifestyle and architecture: Laval - 1.667 m Seytes - 1.919 m Troncea - 1.915 m Jussaud - 1.786 m Alpe Mei
Alpe Mei is located at the end of the valley and is inhabited just in summer. It can be reached within a two-hour walk. The shepherds produce and sell typical mountain cheese such as ricotta and toma.
Mountain huts Hut Troncea

  • Great Location, great place to visit. A lot of trekking possibility even in the winter. The "rifugio" during the path is a great place to have a lunch!

  • A very quiet and beatiful place for a short hike.
  • A local gem. There are many possibilities for hiking cross-country, skiing, and biking. They're also rifuggi that serve lunch. The region of piamonte maintains many well marked trails throughout the park.
