Maira Valley

MTB From San Damiano Macra to the Road of Cannons

A view that rewards the tiresome effort

Leaving the central piazza of San Damiano Macra (743m), a little way on you turn right in the direction of Pagliero – Colle Birrone  where Road of Cannons crosses, an ancient 18th century military road which continues until Colle di Sampeyre (2284m).

The Strada dei Cannoni is famous for its stunning views: it is located between the Maira and Varaita valleys and on the clearest of days, this route has a 360° view over the landscape.  It covers about 30 km with a climb of around 1500m.  For the most part, the road surface is that of a military vehicle road.  The best time to go is from May to September.
