Beigua 4 (Sassello – Bandita – Alta Via – Veirera – Quadrato giallo – Sassello)

The start point is the car park in front of the San Rocco church. From there, follow the signs with two yellow triangles until you leave the village of Sassello. Past the river, you will soon reach a trail that goes into the woods that grow along the stream.
The trail becomes wider and alternates smooth sections to steep and challenging passages, always surrounded by beautiful beech woods. Pass a ford and continue to Casa della Bandita. The track's gradients and the surface make it necessary to carry the bike until you reach the junction with the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri track. Pick up the Alta Via trail in the direction of Pratorotondo. Again, the rough surface will need you to a hike-a-bike for a short while. Continue to pedal and make a U-turn to the left to pick up the trail to Veirera. As soon as you reach the houses, turn onto the trail on your left signposted with a yellow square.
The trail offers a few technical passages alternated with faster and smoother sections, a pleasure to ride and really good fun. Keep following the yellow square signs until you reach Sassello. Cross the village and go back to the start point.
