Trail description:
From the parking area walk toward the village of Dazio. Pass the Coppa Hotel and continue walking toward the main road where you can look a sign to Ca’ del Sasso.
Trying to locate a path in the grass that quickly leads to the paved road, following it leads to the chapel of Saint Anna.

Retrace your steps and follow a trail on the right crossing a small and deserted village.
Cross the footbridge and continue walking on a paved road that leads to the holiday farm (read “Agriturismo”) “La Pedruscia”.

When the paved road finishes take left and follow the trail which leads gently to Ca’ Busnarda, a small place in Naguarido village.
