Wonderful ring route, feasible even in winter if there is little snow, to discover the hamlets of Crodo, the town of the homonymous mineral waters and the famous Crodino.
Starting from the center of Crodo follow the arrows with path code G07 and take the beautiful mule track that cuts the hairpin bends of the Crodo - Mozzio road. The mule track first reaches the hamlet of Rondola, dominated by the ancient signaling tower, and then continues up to Mozzio intersecting the asphalted road. Turn left for a few meters and take the evident cobbled mule track that climbs the meadows until it ends abruptly at the wall of a house. Go around the house on the left and then you will reach a flat road leading to the Edelweiss Hotel and to the center of Viceno. Once crossed the town, descend always on a mule track (path G09) to cross the paved road and then continue downhill, reaching the Alfenza stream. Go up on the other side on a nice stretch of mule track that leads to Vinun and then continue up to a chapel. From here (to visit Cravegna, the Church dedicated to San Giulio and the old wine press), take the beautiful mule track on the left. Then retrace your steps until reaching the chapel and at this point begin the descent towards Fariolo and Navasco (path G11). The mule track becomes very wide and with a couple of hairpin bends reaches the bridge over the Alfenza stream. From here a track continues, initially unpaved and then paved, which brings you back to the Crodo - Mozzio road and soon returns to the center of the town.
