Rifugio Helios is a high mountain refuge at an elevation of 2.328m (7,637ft) above the sea level, located in the Province of Cuneo in the Italian region Piedmont.
The road to the summit, located within the Cottian Alps mountain range, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s called Strada Provinciale 251. The road is impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 recommended. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road.
