Atthe junction with Bar Sport, turn left and head straight for Cesuna Church. After passing the Church, continue to the location called "Diachio". This road is the old connection between the hamlet of Cesuna and Treschè Conca.

ROUTE DESCRIPTION

The road, after having unezed with awide view of the Asiago Plateau,descends to the first houses of Treschè. Here, on the left you will find a sports field,cross it and descend to an underpass that crosses the highway to Treschè Conca. From here you need to continue to the church that is on the top of an ascent about 1 km long. At the church there is a roundabout on which to turn left in the direction of Fort Corbin.

The paved road rises with a steep but not extreme slope, passing through Malga Ronchetto. Warning:after a few hundred meters, leave out the main road and turn right following the signs to the Gevano Valley. Theindication for this direction is not very visible as it is written on a boulder resting on the ground. The dirt road crosses this small valley with pleasant views.

Always continue straight for about 1.5 km leaving a side to the right indicating the direction to the Fort Corbin,a place that will be the second destination of this itinerary. At the end of this stretch will cross the asphalt of the road leading to Mount Cengio. Turn right and climb up to arrive, first to the Prince Square of Piedmont,and then, after a short descent to the Greed Sanctuary.

Mount Cengio is a sacred place to the homeland: during the First World War it was the last bastion of defense from the attack of the Austro-Hungarian troops. Here theItalian army suffered heavy losses to stop the enemy's advance towards the plain.
