Cammino dei fossili

The Fossils Trail - Leg 7

The itinerary gradually descends to the foot of the village of Piovà Massaia, and after just over 2 km you will reach San Pietro district. Turn left and proceed north-west on a winding path for about 1.5 km, until you reach the village of Vastapaglia, in the area of Cocconato d’Asti. From here you can admire the chalk quarries, a very interesting geological site.

Shortly after, ride a narrow uphill road for about 3.5 km and you will reach the centre of Cocconato d’Asti, where the route joins the Superga-Vezzolano-Crea trail.
