SEASON Throughout the year

A round trip exploring the villages of Cannero and Alpe Ronno, a panoramic viewpoint overlooking the lake.

The route starts from Oggebbio in the district of Resiga. Paying a lot of attention to traffic you cycle along the state road n. 34 of Lake Maggiore for about 1 km until you reach the turn off for Cassino - Oggiogno. You climb to the village of Cassino and come to the new road for Donego after some ramps: very steep! From the town you continue in the direction of Oggiogno and after a few hundred meters take the road to Alpe Ronno. The road climbs with many hairpin bends, and bearable gradients. This road is little used and immersed in the wood which makes it pleasantly cool even in the warmer seasons.

On reaching the pasture, you retrace the uphill road until you come to the beginning of the mule-track on the left that descends through the woods to Oggiogno. A single track which is pleasant and where the going is easy. A short pause at Oggiogno to admire the old press and then you resume the descent toward Donego. At the beginning of the town you cross the river and follow the road to Barbè and then return to the starting point in Resiga.
