Baragge (Moors) reserve

Baragge (Moors) reserve

The Riserva Naturale Orientata delle Baragge conserves nearly 3,000 hectares of moor land that at one time covered a great part of Piedmont 's plateaus. Closed north from the Pre-Alps of the Biella area, east from the Sesia River, south from the Cavour channel and the west from Ivrea's Sierra, the moor-like area has soil coming from alluvium, rather barren. The environment presents itself as a sort of heather and grasses land covering with a small number of trees (oak and birch) and as an ecological niche for various nesting birds like: larks, a few storks, numerous diurnal and nocturnal bird preys. Baragge offer spectacular views between the summer and autumn: the brilliant golden color and widespread grass alternating pink spots, typical of the heather, and sometimes brown. From the point of view of the hiking, the Baragge have many easy trails and dirt roads with limited elevation changes, many of which are covered on horseback or mountain bike.
