    Molto impegnativo per un vero fuoristrada

    scusate, ma la parte centale di collegamento mi risulta chiusa e vietata al transito con recinto e tanti bei cartelli di avviso. è cambiato qualcosa negli ultimi mesi ?

    I have done this route again end of June 2013. We faced no blocking of the route. We even past two times a forester who were very friendly at us.
    They didn't mentioned that the route was blocked or that the route was forbidden

    Percorsa in senso anti-orario, bocca di vezzu- ghignu.ogliastro, nei primi giorni gennaio 2014.
    Confermo impegnativa parte iniziale da ghignu a Ogliastra.
    Solo fuoristrada, no principanti, no SUV.
    Cancello (trovato aperto) appena inizio imbocco sterrato da ghignu verso Ogliastra e cancello (trovato chiuso ma senza lucchetti, aperto-passato-richiuso) all'uscita sterrato su N1197, circa 1km prima parchegggio ristorante dove termina la pista.
    Non mi risultano divieti, liberamente fattibile (almeno in gennaio).
    Proabilmente percorsa in senso contrario è più impegnativa.
    Tratto vezzu-Ghignu rimesso a posto (purtroppo), non + twist da mezzo metro, adesso molto più facile (penso anche SUV con attenzione).
    Molto bella

    Traveled in anti-clockwise turn, Bocca di Vezzu-Ghignu.Ogliastro, in early January 2014.
    I confirm intermediate section between Ghignu and Ogliastra difficult.
    Off-road vehicles only, no beginners, no SUV.
    Gate (open) just beginning from Ghignu dirt road to Ogliastra and a second gate (closed but without padlocks) near the exit in N1197, about 1km before restaurant parking where the trail ends.
    I have seen no prohibitions, freely feasible (at least in January, no tourist around).
    Proably if traveled in the opposite direction is more challenging.
    Track from Vezzu to Ghignu was rebuilted in end 2013 (unfortunately), no more 500 mm twist ....., now it is much easier (OK SUV or High clearance vehicle).
    very nice

    Confermo quanto detto sopra. Fatta in senso antiorario agosto 2014, prima parte (bocca di vezzu - spiaggia) facile con qualche pezzettino più sconnesso ma nulla di che.
    Il ritorno (spiaggia- campeggio ostriconi) è stato bello tosto sopratutto perché ho beccato un temporale pazzesco nella parte più difficile. Blocchi e ridotte necessarie. No suv

    I have followed this trail  View more

    Une première partie de quelques km très facile, puis un certain nombre de passages très difficiles jusqu'à Ghignu : en van VW syncro manquant un peu de garde au sol, on a pensé par deux fois devoir rebrousser chemin.
    Enfin, depuis les plages jusqu'à Bocca di Vezzu, rien d'infranchissable. Faire attention aux rochers saillants.
