A spectacular itinerary for MTB offering splendid panoramas of Lake Maggiore, Lake Orta, the Po plains, Mount Rosa and the Swiss Alps.
Starting from the Centro Auxologico in Piancavallo, go to the military road of the Cadorna Line. After passing through the locality of Archia, the military road changes brusquely and attacks the slope with a series of hairpin bends up to Pian Vadà. Leave the MTB at Piè Zeda and walk up to the peak of Mount Zeda, one of the most panoramic viewpoints of the Lake. Return by the same path to Folungo pass. Take the military road that descends slightly to skirt the Biogna pasture and then returns to Pianpuzzo. Then return to the north face and take the Forest Ranger dirt road to Pian d’Alpe, and then proceed to Colle. Finally, return to Piancavallo by taking the wide, level military road with handsome stone architectural elements.
