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.
In the fall, you can collect chestnuts everywhere.

EquipmentSturdy 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!
