From Campello Monti the trail is steep but easily walked, through woods and pastures. After the Bocchetta di Campello Monti gap, the trail descends to the hamlet of Roncaccio from where a level trail winds away through rocks and beech and fir woods. From Alpe Res, the trail leads to the hamlet of Belvedere di Fobello, near Santa Maria.
From Campello Monti, follow the GTA signs out of the village. The trail enters the valley of the Calma stream and heads up to Alpe Scarpia and then on to the Bocchetta di Campello Monti pass. The trail that heads down to Alpe Pianello (and the hut of the same name) is rather faint. Broad pastures give way to a pleasant and clearly marked trail. The trail enters woods and quickly reaches Rimella, made up of a number of smaller hamlets. Crossing the road at the bottom of the valley a trail (GTA signs) leads to the villages of Roncaccio Inferiore and Roncaccio Superiore. These are villages built on very steep slopes. The houses are narrow but tall, in an attempt to spare the surrounding terraced land for growing rye. Head up to the ridge, past Alpe La Res and, through woods the whole time, down to Ronco and then Bosco Superiore, finally joining the road at the bottom of the valley. Follow the road along the banks of the Mastellone stream to the hamlet of Santa Maria.
From Bosco Superiore to Santa Maria di Fobello there is an old bridleway between drywall structures into which signs have been carved dating as far back as 1866. The carvings are coats of arms, presumably from the Savoy era.
