The fairly flat track leads through the upper part of the Verzasca Valley with the starting point in Brione Verzasca and arrival at Sonogno, both typical mountain villages, with a rich history and immersed in nature.

The track, that begins in the locality «Ai Piéé», winds alongside a large stretch of the Verzasca river, famous for its emerald-coloured waters and beside the well-known path «Sentierone» or «Sentiero Verzasca», one of Switzerland's most beautiful hiking tracks.
