MTB - Monferrato

PanoramiCocco (Cocco Landscapes)

The peculiar name of this trail takes us to Cocconato, one of Italy's most beautiful villages. As we ride our mountain bikes, we will be able to enjoy the unique views of this village, which not by chance is called the Monferrato Riviera.

 

The route we are about to take is the largest of a series of trails around Cocconato, created and preserved thanks to the CoccoNut project and local institutions.  The routes are signposted and divided into several trails covering a total of 20 km that can be "customized".

The main loop, the green one we are riding today, offers breathtaking views of the fantastic hills around Cocconato. There are indeed several panoramic points along the route where you can stop.

The trail starts from the old town of Cocconato and, after crossing the first valley, arrives at the Church of the Madonna della Neve, the first gateway to Monferrato. If you follow the signs and continue through the surrounding woods, passing through Cocconato Stazione, you will reach Tuffo, a characteristic village whose narrow streets will make you feel at home.

Once past Tuffo, you will get to the second Vista Point, the Church of Saints Pietro and Paolo, which reveals a 360-degree view of the tidy surrounding hills. With eyes full of wonder, all you have to do next is head towards Cocconito, along a road that on sunny days will leave you breathless as it reveals the Monte Rosa massif, which will keep you company for most of the way.

The trail continues through Cocconito, always on the ridge of the hill and overlooking the Alps, thus allowing us to return slowly to our starting point.

One of the most interisting fact is that, thanks to a small detour from the main loop, you can discover the Parco Naturale dell’Alberone (Alberone Natural Park), a green oasis just a stone's throw from Cocconato.
