“An easier doubletrack skirts the ridge line above Valsassina valley with awesome views.”— Lost Justpastnowhere
In actuality, this is a relatively easy, dirt farm road that follows the ridge of short peaks on the north side of Valsassina valley. If you're following the Brigata Rosselli loop, this may be a welcome chance to recover after the difficult climb up the Pian delle Betulle road.
The trees on top of the ridge have been cleared to provide summer grazing lands for dairy cattle that are used to produce the local Taleggio cheese. This makes for some excellent views down into the Valsassina valley over 1,000 m (3,300 ft) below you, where you can see the Torrente Pioverna (river) as it empties into Lago di Como. the north, you've got the 2,500 m (8,200 ft) peaks and to the south the 2,000 m (6,500 ft) peaks of the Bergamo pre-Alps.
Near the high point on the ridge at 3 km (1.9 mi), there is a large memorial to several of the fallen partisans who were killed in the area by the Nazis in 1944.
At the far (eastern) end, you can continue along a road that runs to a rifugio (mountain hut), Alpe Ombrega. If you're following the Brigata Rosselli loop, take instead the Porta Biandino singletrack to the left.
