This great ring-like itinerary unfolds among the woods of Dagnente and Montrigiasco, two hamlets of Arona’s.
The hike starts from Dagnente, a small town facing Lake Maggiore behind the statue of San Carlone. It was to Dagnente that Felice Cavallotti, writer and politician, dedicated many of his verses, so much that in the cemetery there are his grave and a monument dedicated to him, built by Luigi Conconi and Paolo Trubetzkoy.
The trail climbs the hill and, next to the town’s borders, the old wash house, built in 1920, is found.
After leaving the asphalt it proceeds along the wide trail among the chestnut woods that leads to the huge glacial erratic. These gigantic stones have always raised a lot of curiosity: their lonely, majestic and unusual being has given birth to many myths and legends that tell their origin. It was only in the end of 1800 that geologists could prove that the origin of these rocks was due to the glaciers that, while receding, left the heaviest sediments on these hills. Along this trail three glacial erratics can be found!
After reaching Cascina Incocco, in the town of Paruzzaro, the itinerary proceeds in the woods along the trail that flanks and crosses the Tina Bautina creek, where the sight of the amazing Tina Bautina waterfall opens up: a natural place, suggestive and unusual for a hilly environment.
