At the entry of Primolo (bus stop) starts the mule track that forwards in the wood of larches with some turns and then a level land. After passing two valleys and a bump, you can enjoy a beautiful sight on Valmalenco and Pizzo Scalino. Leave the path to Pradaccio to the right and go on close to the old water lathe for the manufacturing of the “ollare”
