A natural trail at Pila has been dedicated to the marmot. The signposted trail has also been created for teaching purposes and for promoting greater awareness of the area. Along the route are educational boards on various aspects of the natural phenomena that can be observed in the area. The Marmot Trail is an easy route for all the family, set in scenery that is rich in flora and fauna, where it is easy to identify and discover the tracks of the black grouse and the chamois. Take the cable car up to the arrival station of the Chamolé chair lift. From here the trail begins, taking you on a circuit through woods, clearings and meadows between an altitude of 2160 and 2400 metres. After a short while you arrive at Lake Chamolé, surrounded by Becca di Nona, Cresta Nera and Punta Valletta. From the footpath there is a marvellous view over the alpine pastures of Chamolé and Comboé, where the Alpine culture has been able to blend together the work of man, nature and the landscape. The whole trail can be walked in less than two hours and is situated in an unprotected area where there is free access for dogs, for which Pila cable cars offer free passage. In addition to the information boards, there is also a booklet which provides a practical guide to the Alps and is available free of charge from the Pile Cable Car ticket booths.
