after Bobbio Pellice, park at the end of the paved road at Villanova and continue on foot, following the signs to “Rifugio Granero”, to get in the morning in the Conca del Pra through the “alternative route” (situated on the right bank of the Pellice). Go through the flat land of the Conca del Pra till the last small houses of the mountain pasture, where you can choose between two paths:
- on your right, the path of the stones (“sentiero delle pietre”)
- on your left, the path of the pine trees (“sentiero dei larici”)x
The duration of the walk is equivalent and signs are easily visible.
It is also possible to buy a ticket from the bar-trattoria in Villanova, that will allow you to go by car on the passable path till the car park in the beginning of the Conca del Pra following the specific ascent and descent times which can be consulted on the website of the municipality of Bobbio Pellice.
Go the Barbara Lowrie refuge (end of the road at the bottom of the Comba Carbonieri) and keep on by foot through the Manzol pass (around 2-3 hours).
