Cavalline, san giovanni and bettone hills loop

From the village of Paschero di stroppo you start for 12 km of uphill on asphalt reaching the Colle della Cavallina. Just before the hill among the larches, you cycle along a dirt road that leads to Colle di San Giovanni. On the left, take the road to Colle Bettone, where you can follow the yellow markings to avoid the asphalt. Near a back at an altitude of 1584m, follow a forest track that climbs up to 1658m and then lose altitude on a single trail to Borgata Cucchiales. To get to the village of Morinesio and the sanctuary of Santa Maria, take a path in the parts of a small church. Continue to descend on the path to reach the villages of Roata Valle, Grangia and Paschero.
