The sports field trail

Distance: 4.62 km • Time: 1 hour and a half • Easy

The route follows surfaced roads and is almost entirely flat, although it does cross several busy roads so care must be taken. The trail starts from the sports field in Cardano al Campo and loops around over Ponte Verde and through woods of robinia, northern red oak, black cherry, hazelnut and hawthorn in an area that was the scene of many events during the Second World War, as can be seen by the remains of what was probable a kitchen in a German camp. Once back to the sports field, take the trail that goes through the “Ciglione” area of Malpensa – this forested area acts as a barrier between the urban areas and the airport. Continuing on the trail heads into the woods in Casorate, which is popular with horse riders, and ends when it reaches the SS 33 del Sempione, which is the Simplon Road.
