Route description

The route begins near the square of the church of San Matteo in the hamlet of Cellio Con Breia, Carega, 607m, where it also meets route 747 (Borgosesia-Monte Briasco).

Proceed following the paved road and, keeping to the right, cross the village center. When you reach the crossroads with two fountains, keep right with the ascent coming out on the carriage road near the aqueduct storage tank. Keeping to the right on the road to Casaccia, 670m, continue climbing until you reach the small church dedicated to the Name of Mary. Arriving at some houses above, take the mule track to the right and continue until you reach the stone bridge over the Rio di Robbia. From here the mule track begins to climb in hairpin bends and takes us in about 40 minutes to Agarla, at an altitude of 770m. Crossing the square we enter the village passing the oratory of Saints Lorenzo and Apollonia and come out near an unpaved road.

Keeping to the left you enter the carriage road and follow it past the church of San Rocco. Then leaving the road that descends to Breia shortly afterwards on the right, you reach Sella di San Bernardo, 857m.
You can also reach San Bernardo by car by following the carriage roads coming from Cellio or the village of Quarona.
Before the little church, below the restaurant, take the wide dirt road on the left and climb up the road that bypasses on the southern slope Mount Three Crosses of Breia and continuing the route, you gain Mount San Grato, 914m, where there is a pretty little church surrounded by woods.

Mt. San Grato can also be reached from the hamlet of Rozzo di Borgosesia, following the somewhat more strenuous trail No. 745, which arrives just in front of the church.
