Punta di Verzel

Driving the wild unpaved road to Punta di Verzel

Punta di Verzel is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 1.871m (6,138ft) above the sea level, located in the Italian region Piedmont.

Set high in the Catena del Gran Paradiso mountain range of the Western Pre-Alps, in the northern part of the country, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. The climb offers a beautiful view of the Canavese and Serra. Usually recommended from April to November, depends from the presence of snow; usually autumn is more dry so it’s recommended.

4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep with 30 hairpin turns. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable.
