An easy and fun tour from the moraine hills to the river to discover the moor passing through pine forests, ancient roads, hydraulic works and the history of the peoples of the blue river. A loop without difficulty on simple dirt roads and cycle paths of canals suitable for all abilities.
Starting from the Marshes of Arsago, a site of community importance and a Special Protection Area of the Ticino Park, you go along the Strona stream to the boat station, a passageway for the ancient horse trail.
