Start from Santa Maria del Taro where, at the beginning of the village, there is a small parking lot and you can find a fountain in front of the church.
We immediately climb on asphalt, then dirt road to the Griffi pass, more asphalt downhill to the Bocco pass, continue to the Bocco pond.
On the right begins the Zatta forest road, which we will leave almost immediately to take the path that will take us to the summit. The first part is steep and there is some pushing/carrying of the bike for a short distance; then it becomes all cyclable, with good leg.
The trail is beautiful and meanders through the woods to Zatta di Ponente.
The panoramic peak overlooks the Graveglia Valley.
The ridge from Ponente to Levante is all up and down, sometimes exposed, which also requires a bit of "pushge" ; having reached the summit, of Zatta di Levante the descent begins, beautiful enjoyable, flowing with technical stretches, especially on the final part.
Reaching the asphalt, we go up again until we meet on the right a forest road that briefly becomes a path, One last bumpy tear and we enter the woods that with a traverse leads us to take the last descent: dirty, neglected and fun for lovers of the genre.
At the bottom we cross the village and reach the car....
