Informationen zur Tour Beddoro

In the heart of the granite mountains along the rivers


From the starting point you have to cross a fence via the gate to follow the forest road and to start this hike. It runs south and is simultaneously abandoned and covered with cistus-bushes. Initially flat it start to lead uphill after a short while, being covered by the vegetation more and more. Directly ahead you can see a prominent pass between the peaks of the granite mountains Punta Muvrone (right) and Punta Aratena and you continue to walk in this direction. You reach a not very well indicated junction and to your right you will encounter a large brickwork, the first of many basins for the collection of water. In this zone around Beddoro, the name of the entire crest you walk along, you will find many similar constructions. You continue to the left, still surrounded by bushes and steeply downhill. Walking through the forest you will come across another basin and via a very steep path you will get back up higher. On approx. 265 m you will reach another junction. You continue to the right and enter the very high jungle-like bushes, consisting of arbutuses and young holly oaks. The very well indicated track follows some serpentine curves across the big granite rocks and into the open valley, mentioned above. This place is both wild and fascinating. To the right you can admire the impressive Punta Balbacana with its perforated and pointy silhouette, processed by the erosion. The view reaches Cannigione, the sea and the island Corsica. You continue downhill and follow the track through the shrubbery, possibly built by former coal-workers. While losing height slowly you come across some large stones that surround the path, making it both beautiful and surreal. Around 220 m you come to yet another junction. This is the meeting point with the more famous path to Stazzu Manzoni, San Pantaleo (reachable if you continue to the right) and Stazzu li Pinnitteddi. You continue to the right following the path that allows you to have a view of the high mountains. Here you can admire the form-rich chaos and the chasms, all thanks to the erosion. Slightly uphill you will come to another junction on the left side, again on 265 m. You continue uphill and leave the path that lead to the Stazzu li Pinnitteddi. This path was probably also in use by workers in the past, indicated by the coal-repositories you come across which are by now all covered by the vegetation. You reach approx. 335 m and in the forest of young holly oaks you will encounter some wide clearings and dry walls, indicating the past usage of these places. To the right you continue downhill via some large rocks, initially south and eventually east-southeast. You exit the forest and enter the shrubbery, while having the peaks Aratena and Cugnana above you. At the next junction you continue to the left, circuiting the mountain counter clockwise. Thereby you can enjoy the view onto the Monte Plebi, the Punta Zapparottu and the city of Olbia. The path gets worse and you come across areas, marked by landslides. The rocks are smaller around here and the path continues back uphill, reaching a saddle with dry walls. To the east you can see the sea, as well as Portisco and the golf of Marinella and Cugnana. The view is beautiful and this place must have been of crucial importance also in ancient times, indicated by the splinters of obsidian, scattered all around the area. These indicate that humans must have lived here in prehistoric ages. To the left you continue in the direction of the coast of Beddoro which you have walked along in the morning. The path is easily visible and leads into the forest of arbutuses and then holly oaks to the end of the forest road. To the left you will reach the nth basin, as mentioned above. To the right you continue steeply downhill along a path that is possibly dug out because of maintenance of the water conducts. Just before another basin you will reach a wide open space which you walk around by starting to the right. You come past a very old juniper and follow the path to the north across the dense vegetation. A couple of steps and you reach the first junction on approx. 265 m that you have already seen on the way there. Now you can reach your car by following the path you already know.
