The scenery is lovely forested mountainside with views of foothills and plains in the distance. Once you reach the alto piano of Cadolten you cross rolling grassland and then a conifer forest which is perpetually shady and still snowy in mid-April. Here I tried a new road up to Malga Coro. This was on a grassy hill with great views in all directions. It was cold and windy up there though so I turned back.
A short ride brings you to the Monte Pizzoc road (still snowed-in above Cadolten), then to the strada provinciale toward Caneva (only traffic: a young man walking a cow). I turned off onto Strada dei Patriarchi and cruised all the way down to Villa di Villa and the car. Need to explore this area more.
