Snowshoe trail Piera-Dötra

This snowshoe trail follows ancient, narrow mule tracks set in a fir forest.

The route starts from Piera with an initial stretch of asphalt road and then merges onto a wilderness path that is completely surrounded by nature, apart from the small cluster of farmsteads in the Oncedo area and the Piana di Dasunda.

The landscape opens up for the last part of the trail, giving way to the splendid Dötra Plateau with its high sun-kissed peaks. The Dötra Hut and Grotto both provide an opportunity to savor Ticino cuisine.

The route information are to be taken as outward and return trip on the same route or descend using the local road.


For safety reasons, it is forbidden to leave the marked route.
