Giro di Paltrac

of the path

An easy ring tour almost exclusively on the road from Val de Fornas to Paltrac.

Park your car to Carve and discover its imposing church and the beautiful recently restored bell tower in which photographic exhibitions are set up.

Follow the asphalted road for about 1 km to Montagna of Carve and enjoy the beautiful landscape views of the Zumelle Castle. Proceed down the dirt road from which you can see the first gorges.

This area is very famous, especially for canyoning enthusiasts. At the end of the road from the Paltrac village, visit the Maor stream and go up to the other side. Discover the ancient lime kiln -”calchera”- of which you can discover the history and techniques of use, recently restored by the Alpine troops.

Go down the valley on the dirt road and arrive at Ponte Valmaor. Along the way, discover the characteristic narrow gorges eroded by water over the millennia which are made more fascinating and mysterious by the fact that little light filters through. Return to Carve by going up the road for about 1.5 km.
