From the church of Roncole, take the side path, turn left and go beyond the hamlet inhabited area. The track starts climbing through the valley and crosses a stream, reaching the ridge to be followed along steep bends into the woods. After crossing an area of terracings, you will come out at the end of the field of Alpe Maddalene. Past the block of houses, the path turns left into a woody valley and reaches the dirt road that leads to Alpe Maddalene, then down to Alpe Piane and finally into the valley of Postua, beyond the chapel of the Marcoleggia. Cross the road and keep left near the ruins of alpe Drobbiai. Continue on the side as far as the edge of the field. Walk along the field keeping right, near the ‘baitas’ of alpe Fagolosa and after taking various bends you will reach the dirt road. Turn right and after a short while you will reach the Saddle and the small Church of San Bernardo.
