The trail follows along the curves of the different valley gorges. Pass Alpe Wan (1,470 m) and Alpe Werch, here you'll find some stone quarries. At an adjacent visible pass, the trail forks; the road to the left goes directly to Bocchetta, while the right goes to Alpe Pianello (1,801 m) and from there to Bocchetta (1,924 m). On Bocchetta, a small cross has been built and you there is a splendid view of Monte Rosa and the peaks of the Valsesia.
