Alpe Soglia is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 1.841m (6,040ft) above the sea level, located in Piedmont in northern Italy.
The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable from October to May (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Near the summit there’s a mountain refuge called Rifugio Alpe Soglia.
4x4 vehicle recommended. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep with some hairpin turns. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. Its many twists, turns and narrows can pose a challenge to even the most experienced drivers. The road is not easy, though. Up, down, right, left all the time. The journey offers an exhilarating driving experience, with superb views.
