A ring itinerary to discover the splendid natural environment on the heights behind Pallanza, which will soon be incorporated into the Val Grande National Park.
The ring itinerary with start and finish in Verbania Pallanza takes off on an uphill climb starting from the heart of the town. Go all the way up to reach the beech forest, then pass through the gate of a holiday farm and you will quickly reach the summit of Mount Rosso. Follow the dirt road from the summit to the Cavandone settlement. Among the narrow alleys of the settlement, take the path that descends toward the Church of the Madonna del Buon Rimedio, then continue along the vehicle track down to the state route that leads back to the starting point.
