Uphill Trail: on the right, take a road narrowing until it becomes a trail. After about 15 minutes, the trail moves from the eastern to the western slope (view over borgate Vespia, Campo, and Muriaglio). From here onwards, the trail develops along the ridge with view both over the slope of Baldissero and the slope of Vespia, Campo, and Muriaglio, and with view over Torre Cives. Now and then you can see a blue sign on the rocks.
After a short downhill stretch near an abandoned quarry towards the slope of Baldissero (loc. Pramarzo), go ahead along the flat road for about 50m and, on the right, follow a trail leading under the Tower. Continue until you reach a small hillock where on the right you will find blue arrows directly leading to the top, where you will enjoy a beautiful view over the underlying valley.

Downhill Trail: down along the uphill trail.
