Cerretto Langhe is a small retreat where you can take refuge when you need a break from the city. Its stone houses, surrounded by broadleaf, Scots pine and beech woods are a real treat for those who venture there.
The trail we are suggesting here is the Graffiti Trail, a not-too-demanding 7 km-long loop that initially runs along the ridge between the Arguello valley on the right and the Rio Lavagello valley on the left, and then it passes by the ridge overlooking the Belbo valley on one side and the Tanaro valley on the other.
All of the above is to announce a trail that will enchant you with its views that gradually unfold as you pass through it, extending as far as the Alpine arc, the Langa del Vino and the Belbo Valley. Park your car near the cemetery and reach the small church of San Rocco. Follow the signposts and get to Bricco Fò and then, after about 200 metres on the state road, continue along Strada Duecento and, between ups and downs, dirt and asphalt stretches, you will reach Strada Bricco and then Borgata Cavallotti. Turn right onto Strada Fontane and near Cascina Le Coste continue on the dirt road that heads into the woods. A few hairpin bends downhill and you will come to a junction where you keep to the right to reach a stream crossed by a small bridge. And it is here, about ten metres from this small stream, that you will find an outcrop of sandstone on which a dragon has been engraved. Further on you will pass by the Cascine Rocchetta and continue uphill to return to Cerretto Langhe near the parish church.
