At 420 meters there's a junction so I stopped. I mistakenly chose the Percorso Circolare Santuario to the left, which is a nice hiking/running trail but steep and muddy, so my rear knobby was spinning (even when seated) and tearing up the trail. So I retraced my path and resumed the gravel road to the right. It got very steep at times so I had to walk a few meters but not bad. Eventually I arrived at a restored casetta (570 meters) and then joined the paved road from Rifugio Bornass toward Costa. There are MTB trails descending here but after walking a few meters down to preview them, I knew they were beyond my skill level: steep, muddy with half-exposed small boulders to weave through. Maybe I'll try going up that way first to get some practice.
This is a good ride and very convenient to home. I'll have to do some variations soon.
