Classico e bellissmo percorso. Uno dei migliori percorsi XC della zona. Facendo perno sullo splendido borgo medievale di Vigoleno l'escursione corre sulle spettacolari coste di Cergallina e di Vernasca. Gli spettacolari calanchi che ricordano antichi mari tropicali sovrastano i tanti vigneti che portano ricchezza a questi territori. Lo sguardo spazia a 360° in panorami davvero stupendi. La fioritura primaverile regala colori incredibili ad un paesaggio che meriterebbe la fama di altri siti più famosi. Si passa per il meraviglioso borgo di Vigoleno e si ammira dall'alto il paese rinascimentale di Castell'Arquato.
Il percorso assai scorrevole, riesce comunque ad impegnare severamente il biker, i continui saliscendi non danno respiro a chi vuole pedalare con forza. Non ci sono difficoltà tecniche impegnative ma i muri da superare sono davvero tosti, e le discese anche se brevi e veloci non sono da prendere sottogamba, i single track assai stretti e i canali provocati dal passaggio delle moto richiedono una guida attenta e sicura.
