The path adopted by the AIB (Anti Forest Fires), WWF (World Wild Fund) and CAI (Italian Alpine Club) is named after David Bertrand, a young AIB who died in the Monte San Giorgio Provincial Park during the Piossasco fire in 1999
. institutional this initiative is promoted by the Metropolitan City of Turin and by the Municipalities of Piossasco, Roletto, Cantalupa, Pinerolo, Frossasco, Trana and Cumiana, interested in crossing the permanent path.
The route, starting from Roletto (the town where David was born) passes through the Monte Tre Denti - Freidour Park and arrives, via a ridge path, at the Monte San Giorgio Park (place where the young man died), up to Casa Martignona (Piossasco).
The route is spread over 37 km with a positive difference in height of m. 1,500, features that make it suitable for hosting a good level trail race.
