From the car park at the Bar Riposo in Ossuccio, walk up the paved chapel path to the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Soccorso (419 m) with Osteria and beautiful views of the lake, its only island and the wooded back of Dosso di Lavedo.
The Sacro Monte chapel path and church have been UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 2003.
Behind the building complex on a wide path, which initially rises steeply, into the Valle Perlana.
You pass the houses of Preda (520 m) and then walk through magnificent chestnut groves valley (several springs).
The path that climbs steeper again last leads directly to San Benedetto (810 m).
Pass behind the church and briefly down to the Talbach stream, which you cross on a solid bridge.
On the opposite, eastern side of the valley downhill and out to Tremezzina.
The path soon becomes a narrow road, which finally descends a little more to the Abbazia dell'Acquafredda (329 m).
You can't stop here, but at least quench your thirst; the cold water of the spring (acqua fredda) tastes good and is considered curative by the locals.
Go down a road loop (no markings), then turn right into a small path.
Above a waterfall on a bridge over the stream and into Ossuccio and back to the starting point of the round. equipment
