Itinerary Description

From the upper section of the town of Coggiola (Zuccaro hamlet), we start out towards the Sanctuary of Cavallero (road and trail). Afterwards, we will backtrack and cross the Sessera Stream with its characteristic suspension bridge. The trail descends towards the village of Masseranga and, before getting to the houses, we take the trail to the right. We walk on to then take the steep path up to the Sanctuary of Novareia. Starting from the Sanctuary, the trail follows the road and the journey goes to the Centro Zegna in Trivero.
From Centro Zegna, the road recommended for the Brughiera Sanctuary takes we up towards the first section of the Zegna Panoramic Road to admire the Conca dei Rododendri, a location known for its beautiful flowers. From the trail crosses the residential village, and we use different roads and paths to reach the Brughiera Sanctuary.
