The mountain path winds through woods and pastures. You reach the Dos dell'Ora (1100 m), a place-name that literally means Dosso del vento from the south and represents a strategic junction on the ridge that leads straight to the Cascina d'Armirone and Bellavista Station, while on the left leads to Alpe La Grassa and descends to Cragno.

It then descends again towards Alpe Caviano (997m), on the southern side of the Monte Generoso massif. Closing of the ring and return to Castel San Pietro.
