When you leave the chairlift station of Scopello-Mera, you will descend on the road for 2 km to a fork for "Colle della Boscarola”, which is indicated on the right by a yellow sign bearing the number "3”. From here, you will take an easy dirt road angled slightly uphill for 2.5 km to the hill (1423 m). The road starts to descend to Dolca, where it begins to alternate uphill and downhill sections. After 10 km, you will find yourself at Casa del Pescatore (the Fisherman’s House). From this point on, the road starts back uphill steadily for 5 km, and reaches Bielmonte after passing through Bocchetto Sessera. The itinerary is located inside the Oasi Zegna in the Regional Forest of Alta Valsessera, and develops along a very broad forest road.
