Trekking - Roero - Pocapaglia

Pocapaglia Trails

The village is a small hilltop hamlet in the heart of the Roero. The most characteristic element of the area are certainly the Rocche (rocks), real canyons that carve the land with an 11 km long crack that from here extends over to Cisterna d'Asti. This is the legacy of the Tanaro river that diverted its course and covered everything here. Unusual landscapes, woods combined with panoramic balconies, lush vines created by a unique unrivalled soil.

Pocapaglia, perched on the hill and surrounded by the Rocche, offers 4 themed loop trails. Each trail explores a theme related to the landscape, its inhabitants and the products that nature gives us. Here one cannot fail to mention the Rocca dell'Eremità and the Masca Micilina, the village's emblenatic inhabitants. In the small Ecomuseum you can learn all about their stories, as well as many details of the hard life on these hills.

All the paths are signposted, and it is possible to extend the itinerary when crossing other paths.

The S1, the Roero Great Route, and the MTB paths of the Roero Bike Tour also run through this area.
