The tour starts and ends in Gerra Verzasca, which can be reached by car or bus (Locarno-Tenero-Sonogno route). A steep forest path leads up to the large alp pasture of Vèld, where local products such as cheese and sausages may be purchased. Take care, as the sheep here are guarded by dogs. The route continues its steep ascent to the Corte di Sopra before traversing the Cresta di Cazzai ridge to Cazzai, a lovely summer alp with well preserved stone houses.
The descent to the enchanting, tranquil Monte Valdo is steep, after which the path back to the valley and Frasco presents no problems as it passes through woodland featuring larch, chestnut and many other species. From Frasco the trail follows the Verzasca River back to Gerra Verzasca where the bus (Locarno-Tenero-Sonogno route) leaves. The cooling waters of the Verzasca are on hand if you feel like a dip.
