05 Feb TRAIL OF GRASS AND HAY
The trail follows the sunniest part of the territory, touching on the most remote villages: Miniggio, San Francesco, Bauzarone. After admiring the 1700s oratory in Miniggio, a unique architectural facility, one descends in the wild valley of creek Riasca.
Before reaching the creek, looking to the right, one can walk a few hundred meters to the remnants of the Zorio factory, probably the oldest mill in Pettinengo. From here, go up to San Francesco on “Don Bosco’s trail” which goes from Bauzarone to Selva, where one can admire one of the most interesting wall frescoes in the area: the exodus from Egypt.
Ring: Miniggio, San Francesco, Bauzarone, Selva and back.
Time: 1 hour 45 minutes
200-meter drop between climbing and descending
