San giovanni and lower encucetta hills loop

From the Ponte Marmora car park, you start by following the paved road towards Acceglio. Take the winter cross-country track before the bridge to get to Prazzo and cycle along a road on the left to Colle San Giovanni. Then you go down on asphalt and trails with technical sections up to Canosio, where you go up to Borgata Superiore on asphalt. Then take the path of the “Napoleonic road” that leads to the Encucetta hill. After the path, to return to the starting point, you descend rapidly losing altitude until you reach a forest road.
