When you get to the hamlet of Garroni, back on the provincial road towards Denice, follow this route for about a hundred metres and then turn onto a dirt road that climbs along the hill ridge. Once you reach the top, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Bormida Valley of Spigno, with its grey clay gullies, and the tower of Denice below, facing the tower of Castelletto d'Erro.
The asphalted road bends to the right and leaves the ridge to descend towards Denice, but here we climb up the ridge along the dirt road that takes us through a wood and then down to the hamlet of Santa Libera with its small church and old school. From the hamlet of Santa Libera, keep going downhill towards Monastero Bormida, follow the asphalted road for a few metres and then turn right to climb up to the ridge and enter the woods again. Next, you go back down onto the asphalted road and follow it for a short stretch until you reach a bend to the right, here you turn left onto the old mule track that once led to Monastero Bormida.
