This route begins in Capriana square and descends to the SS 612 road near Ristorante Miravalli. From here you take the footpath signed for Maso Lio and follow a path which once linked up historic farmhouses, some of which are now derelict.

A beautiful panoramic section follows the Avisio stream to Maso Ponte, still inhabited in the last century and surrounded by vegetable gardens, fields and vineyards. All that remains now is ruins near a historic crossing which once linked up Capriana and Valfloriana which was swept away in the 1966 flood. Here this wild stream is at its most magnificent and pristine. The route follows along it for around 1 km before turning off it to climb up to Maso Rover, an exquisite Capriana hamlet. Rover's landscape is replete with history: steep terraced fields, a little chapel built by the workers who constructed the Stramentizzo dam, the houses abandoned after the 1966 flood. Right here a small farm, FiordaLisa, has started farming these terraces once again with vegetables, herbs and ancient local varieties of bean.

The route continues to the small but lively village of Carbonare, which is worth a visit, and then Mulino Museo della Beata Meneghina, an important local religious site. The return journey to Capriana follows a straightforward footpath.

Author’s recommendation

On the way it worth a look to Valfloriana town hamlets named Maso and Ischiazza, which peek out from the other slope of the mountain. They were abandoned during the flood of 1966 and never inhabited again. At Maso Rover the farm Fiordalisa deserves a visit (which need to be agreed with its owner Lisa Dotta - website fiordalisa.jimdo.com).
