The trail starts from San Bernardo, following the road that leads to Dosso lodge and proceeding towards Monscera alp until Gattascosa lodge.

From here the trail goes down until Gattascosa's peat bog, also known as Lago Morto di Verrosso (dead lake of Verrosso), a swampy plain rich in vegetation, that can be crossed with a boardwalk.

Part of this trail develops along the historic Stockalper track, a mule track made in 1630 by Baron Kaspar Stockalper, a Swiss merchant who got the name of “King of Simplon”. Stockalper made the trail safe, and improved the road that connected Brig to Domodossola, through Simplon pass, to ease the European trades. The Baron also developed the postal service. In 1640, thanks to the newly repaired trail, a horseman could bring letters from Geneve to Milan in eight days during summer and ten in winter!
