Starting from Losone the route follows the banks of the river Maggia and leads further along the river Melezza. After approximately 3 km, near the Losone golf course, you cross the bridge to the other side of the river then turn left and proceed straight ahead, on the left bank of the river and running through the villages Tegna, Verscio and Cavigliano where, after a short climb, you reach the district road which connects the village Cavigliano with Golino. While crossing the bridge “Ponte dei Cavalli” you enjoy a splendid view onto the Centovalli railway bridge, frequently visited by bungee jumping enthusiasts, over which the Centovalli train runs. After the bridge you leave the road and head back down to the path on the river bank, which leads you back to Losone.
