SEASON From May to October
A beautiful round trip in Valle Antigorio on tarmac roads with low traffic and unmade farm tracks at the foot of Mount Cistella through pastures, well kept rural buildings and beautiful scenery.
From the centre of Crodo take the road to Mozzio and Viceno which climb gradually through hairpin bends. From Viceno turn in the direction of Cravegna and immediately after the River Alfenza take the farm track for Deccia that continues to the Alpe. From Deccia you come back following the track and then take the turn off to Voma which is more or less flat. From Voma take a path between walls that leads to the vallone dell'Alfenza and ford the river (almost always dry). Immediately after the ford there is the beginning of a path that leads to Foppiano and from here, following the tarmac road, you return to Viceno. Continue to the church of Cravegna and take the road to Navasco. From here you take the wide mule track (path G11) which, after a couple of hairpin bends, leads to the bridge on the River Alfenza. Then you continue on a path, first unmade then tarmac, which brings you back to cross the Crodo - Mozzio road and soon after back to the starting point.
