The trail

The tour of Mount Acuto

It starts from Ceriale. You cross the “Capo of Borghetto” and reach the medieval village of Toirano. After the village begins the ascent with a constant slope, without ever being too steep.
In many places you can enjoy a beautiful sea view. About halfway there is the historic village of Balestrino, after which the landscape takes on a more mountainous aspect. In a few kilometers you get to the sanctuary, which is located on the top of the mountain, at 813 meters above sea level. From there the trail starts. It is a 10 kilometers long single track completely along the mountain ridge and always with a breathtaking sea view. With more than an hour downhill you reach the coast of Ceriale, facing a difference in altitude of 800 meters.
