Hiking – Via del Mercato: from Re to Camedo
Difficulty
Medium
Period
Spring / Summer / Autumn

The second stage of the Via del Mercato (Market Route) is short and simple. It’s also advisable, before taking the mule track to Folsogno, to make a short detour to admire the arched bridge of Maglione. Back on the Via del Mercato mule track, marked M00, climb to Folsogno and from here follow the pleasant flat path that leads to Dissimo. Partly on footpath and partly by road you reach the small village of Olgia. These villages are located on the sunny side of the Vigezzo Valley and still retain their original structure. The section of the mule track that leads to the border of Ponte Ribellasca can still be walked along the ancient Via del Mercato.
