From the parking lot along the Sesia river, enter the inhabited area of the town. Near the bowls court, the path climbs up along the muletrack through a chestnut wood. After 15 minutes, you will reach Alpe Cipolla. Continue through a wood up to Alpe Pian del Montone or Solivetto and then head for Alpe Taragno. Keep walking along the ridge until the path leads to Alpe Solivo dell’Erba. Leave a non-signalled shortcut on the right, which is exposed but offers a great view. Continue on the left through the woods. Pass near a stone slab where an engraved cross marks the borders of four communes (Scopello, Pila, Piode and Campertogno) and enter a birchen wood where the shortcut reappears. After a short while you will reach Piano del Ronco. From this pasture the path becomes less visible and reaches the pasture of Alpe sui Piani.
