A panoramic point easy to reach with snowshoes. From the top it is possible to admire the Piné Plateau in its wonderful winter landscape.

The itinerary to the Cròs del Cuc is a route loved by young and old alike for its feasibility and suggestive setting. The summit can be reached in about an hour and a half's walk with snowshoes, following the forest road that starts from the car park near the Baita Alpina hut above the village of Bedollo. The point of arrival is marked by a majestic cross and by the clearing, which affords an excellent view of the glacial mirrors of Lago delle Piazze and Serraia.
