Totally flat, on quiet country roads that cross the agricultural villages in the area of the orographic right of the river Sesia. Leaving Casale Monferrato, along the left bank of the Po (dirt) for 4.4 km along the Park Po and Orba River. Go through the agricultural villages of Terranova, Motta de' Conti, with the ruins of a fortified noble palace, Caresana and the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Morone, Pezzana and Prarolo, with its castle.

The route crosses the Vercelli plain, strongly characterized by numerous rice fields where various bird species  are attracted to by the presence of the pools of water.
