The Verzasca Valley trail

For the beauty of the landscape and for the trails that unravel through the woods and along the river's emerald-coloured waters, the Sentierone (Long Trail) of the Verzasca Valley is certainly one of the most popular walks in Ticino. The itinerary follows the ancient mule track through old rural buildings, chapels, little bridges, waterfalls and pastures in bloom. This walk is much appreciated also by groups and families because it is easy and you can interrupt it whenever you like thanks to its great accessibility and to the numerous stops offered by public transport. In summer you can recharge your batteries with a refreshing swim in the river.
