The track starts behind the CAI Alpine Hut, goes up along the mountainside and thus enters the Rio Frova river valley coasting the torrent’s gully up high up to when we reach the Du Scricc Plain (an Alpine pasture amid the Park). We cross the torrent and start going up through the woods up until we arrive past the limits of the SassMor Plain (Pian SassMor). From here the path goes up steeply in narrow hairpin bends up to the Valtendra Mountain Pass (2,433 meters above mean sea level). We then follow along the mountainside gaining some altitude and then coast the base of the steep rocky slopes encountered (be careful in case of thunderstorms or heavy rains as these may cause falling rocks) after which we enter a great cirque with a lake. From here we go back up slightly along the mountainside up to reaching the Scatta d’Orogna Mountain Pass (2,431 meters above mean sea level) from where we can admire the splendid Devero Alp mountain crown. We start going down along the Buscagna Valley always keeping on the left-hand-side of the torrent. The high-altitude prairies, beaten by winds and trodden by clear-water torrents, start leading into a larch forest. We touch upon the Alpine pastures of the Buscagna Alp and follow on along a seemingly flat surface in a beautiful environment, with the torrent flowing slowly while taking wide curves up to where we find the Buscagna Alpine pasture, which has been refurbished by the Devero Park Vigil (1,950 meters above mean sea level). Via a wide path we go down and in a brief amount of time reach Devero, first crossing the rural areas in the municipality of Pedemonte and then finally reaching the Ai Ponti municipality.
