Often driving along the Bormida valley, looking up, you can see the towers that dominate the valley. This fact intrigued us and we discovered that the path of the 5 towers exists …. Then we immediately left to discover this CAI path, starting from Monastero Bormida.

We rode the path by MTB in a counter-clockwise direction and I suggest you keep this direction if you wanted to do it in MTB.

The first kms are the most difficult to pedal because of the slope and the single track: this means that depending on your ability and your strength, at times you will have to get off the bike and push. All the first part is a nice single track in the woods very funny obviously downhill.

Arrived at the Sanctuary of “Maria del Rosario”, begins a beautiful stretch of dirt road that leads us to the first tower of San Girogio Scarampi. Short break and then continue towards Olmo Gentile and then to Roccaverano. The tower can be visited and in the square you can stop at the bar for a coffee break or a quick lunch.

Between the first tower and the third tower (Roccaverano) you cycle through woods and meadows and the views are breathtaking; is a continuous up and down with some very steep sections (with the eMTB you do, with the MTB it depends on your muscle power :-))

Starting from Roccaverano, the long descent to Monastero Bormida begins, sometimes interrupted by short climbs. The descent is a succession of single tracks and country roads: during the descent we also meet the Tower of Vengore.

Arrived almost at Monastero, we take the deviation from the GPX to go and see the big bench that dominates the Bormida valley. The main feature is that it has a big heart as a backrest. I recommend a short break, sit down and relax
