The “d’Ast” route begins on level ground on a dirt track for 1 km, and afterwards rises amidst meadows and woods, going past glades, lakes, and picnic areas.

Halfway through the circular route, an alternative route begins. It is 2.5 km long, starting at 1030 metres above sea level and reaching 1290 metres: a constant climb on a regular paved or dirt track that leads to a large plateau with a spectacular view, offering views of the Po River and the Apennines on clear days.
