Route description

A beautiful trail leading to Alpe Sacchi, a scenic valley directly overlooking the Cusian side, with memorable views of Lake Orta.

The trail begins immediately upstream from one of the hamlets of Camasco, 756 m, Corte. Crossing the bridge, you skirt a fence following a track that leads to the ford of a stream. Arriving at a pasture area, take a left and climb a clearing. The trail proceeds through the forest until you reach Alpe Rüsi, at an elevation of 1100m. You then continue across the dirt road that climbs cutting across the slope to reach Sella delle Sacche, 1296m. Continuing, you then descend briefly to the road coming from Morondo.

Follow the road and you will soon reach Alpe Sacchi, 1230m, where there is a wonderful view of Lake Orta, the mountains of Cusio, Ossola and Ticino, and even a glimpse of the Lombard Pre-Alps.

Alpe Sacchi can also be reached by a paved road from Varallo via Morondo.

Following the ridge northward, one can reach by a route partly on a dirt road and partly on a path, in about half an hour, the Colle del Ranghetto, 1272m.
