Dream tour along historic paths into an unspoilt side valley of the Valle Maggia

This medium-difficulty hike follows historic paths through the unspoilt mountain world of the Valle del Salto. Religious wayside shrines line the path, it goes past old stone settlements on gentle hills and along an impressive gorge between rugged rocks. The old, stony paths, some of which are quite exposed, require surefootedness.
