Distance 6.4 km
Highest point793 m
Lowest point253 m
This wonderful hike starts in Tegna and is reachable by car or the Centovalli Railway (Locarno-Domodossola). From Tegna, the path leads up to the Colma viewpoint, which is relatively steep but easy to follow. At Forcola, it is worth taking a short detour to the nearby "Castelliere" (prehistoric ruins), which were restored in 2018. At Coma, a terrace and a small chapel (built in 2000) invite to take a break with a beautiful view over the Centovalli and as far as Lake Maggiore. In the sparse forest, the trail descends slightly to Streccia, with a view of the Vallemaggia. Like in a fairy tale the tour continues on an old mule trail over a little stone bridge through the wild wooded valley along the "Ri da Riei" stream to Riei. The further descent to Verscio is a bit of a hike. The Centovalli Railway runs from Verscio.
