The path begins with a moderate climb that develops along the continuation of the road. Near the first hairpin bend, a steep stony mule track can be noticed on the right: it leads more quickly to the Malpensata refuge, while the road layout is slightly longer, but gentle. In the Malpensata area, the two paths rejoin and continue briefly along the unpaved road up to a new crossroads: once again, this time to the left, a very steep marked path (with white-blue trail marker 3V) branches off. It is advisable to follow it uphill, not only for the slope but because it considerably shortens the path along the road. After a steep stretch in the woods, you reach a clearing from which you can admire the top of Monte Guglielmo. Continue on a slight slope and then resume the climb until you reach a verdant pasture plain. The path runs along a low wall up to the Guglielmo di Sotto hut, from which to resume the wide dirt road. There are no further deviations: turn left and continue along the gravel road which, going up through the pastures, reaches the northwestern summit of Monte Guglielmo. The slope decreases until it reaches the beautiful pasture plateau that houses the Guglielmo di Sopra hut, characterized by some small lakes in its immediate vicinity. From this wonderful terrace it is possible to clearly observe the ridge above and the top of Guglielmo. Continue along the small road until you take the mule track that returns to altitude and leads to the Guglielmo di Sotto hut and shortly after to the Almici Refuge (excellent support point, open in the summer season). A small but easy path goes up along the ridge to the left of the top and in a few minutes you will reach the summit, from which the view is breathtaking.

Eine schöne Wandertour, die aber ein paar Tücken mit sich bringt. Zum einen ist die Fahrt zum Startpunkt bereits ein Abenteuer. Furchtbar schlechte, schmale Straßen und Senken machen das voran kommen langsam. Der Aufstieg am Anfang ist nicht zu steil und geht über einen Forstweg durch den Wald. Ab der Hälfte ca. Geht man nur noch durch die Sonne. Extrem steile Stücke zwischen den Hütten, ist aber gut machbar. Der Weg ist stellenweise geteert, weshalb viele Radfahrer unterwegs sind. Dennoch lohnt der Ausblick allemal.
