Itinerary:
This route leads along the hydrographic right-hand side of the Val Cavaione. It can be walked starting from the village of Ronchi (814 m.), which can be reached by car. Walkers will be amazed, not only by the natural surroundings, but also by the completely frescoed surfaces of the oratories seen along the route, the little chapels and the jewel of the church of San Lorenzo at the Alpe Seccio. The whole walk is extremely fascinating. Leaving from the little square at Boccioleto halfway along the Via Zali by a fountain, following the mule track with the sign CAI 387, you reach the hamlet of Ronchi (814 m.) and you continue upwards to Ormezzano and then to Solivo (1027 m.), then on to Alpe Daloch, from where the road climbs slowly (and you have the panorama of the hydrographic left-hand side of the Val Cavaione). You then come to Rivetto and finally to Seccio (which can also be reached up the old mule track directly from Rivetto), the last village of the Val Cavaione. To return via Alpe Varmal, Alpe sull’Oro, Rossa and Oro takes approx. 3 hours.

Points of interest: the parish church and the oratory of the Annuciation at Boccioleto; the oratory of Santa Maria delle Grazie at Ronchi; the chapel of San Nicola and the oratory of Sant'Antonio at Solivo, the chapel of Selletto; the oratory of San Lorenzo at Seccio with its splendid late-gothic 14th century frescoes.
