A circular route with beautiful views and great trails. There are many narrow paths through the forest but there are always amazing views. On the way, there are also some nice bridges and creeks.

In Cannobio, we followed the river, outside the village, we took a nice narrow path uphill to Sant' Agata. On the church square, there is a small cafe that serves a good coffee with an even better view. The path to Cavaglio is completely in the woods and very nice to walk, we walked on very narrow paths through chestnut woods. We had to cross one or two nice bridges and creeks. From time to time there is also a view into the mountains. Also, the farther way to Traffiume is a nice narrow path through the forest.

Author’s recommendation

In the fall, you can collect chestnuts everywhere.

Parking in Via S. Rocco

Turn-by-turn directions

From the parking space in Via S. Rocco take Strada Statale 631 to Traffiume, then cross the bridge over the river and enter the village, following the road until the roundabout, where you take the second exit into Via alle Piana towards the cemetery. At the end of the road, take a narrow path uphill into the woods. At the next junction, turn left uphill. The path then leads to Santa Agata, passing the cemetery and entering the church square. From there, turn left again (between the houses) onto the marked hiking trail. For a while, the path leads uphill, mainly on stairs. Follow the path and pass the small chapel Chiesa Di S. Luca. At the next turn-off, the path goes straight on towards Biessen, at the next turn-off walk left towards Cavaglio. From Cavaglio, the route then passes Sant Ana to Traffiume and then back to Cannobio along the same path.

Equipment

Sturdy shoes are advisable as there are some stony passages. In Cannobio, you can either drive to Traffiume by car or walk on the other side of the river, which is nicer than the path we used - later we always walked over the suspension bridge and on the other riverbank - this saves walking along the road from Cannobio to Traffiume!
