The paths of the Alta Langa
The ideal place to discover the most beautiful paths in the Langhe
We are passionate hikers also because, we have infront of our back yard, two of the most beautiful and popular biking trails of the Alta Langa: the Grand Route across the Langa (GTL) and the Hazelnut Round Trip (Anello della nocciola), an about 8 km circuit, very scenic among hazel groves and woods.
It is therefore possible to deal with these two routes starting directly from Cascina Prato, backpacker.
We will provide detailed descriptions of the path, maps of the area and a snack.
Of course, you can challenge these routes by mountain bike; in particular it is recommended the path of the Grand Route across the Langa, whose signage has been recently updated and has been equipped with many charging stations for e-bikes.
Do so many kilometres with the minimum effort … the best!
The GPS track can be downloaded from the website www.langheroero.it
For those who want to take a simpler path, follow the quiet paved tiny streets that run along the crests of the Alta Langa: we absolutely recommend the Cravanzana-Mombarcaro path or, slightly more challenging, the Cravanzana, San Benedetto, Mombarcaro circuit. The latter is the highest village of the Alta Langa, in front of you, you will find a amazing landscape; it is even said that on clear days you may also see the sea.
You can keep your bikes safe in the large company garage and use the equipment for minor repairs.
