ITINERARIES SIGN-POSTED BY “C.A.S.B”

Walking is the most economical and powerful instrument which we have at our disposal for discovering new places. It means returning to a slow pace and the natural rhythm of our own steps as well as really perceiving and discovering the places we visit.
Through walking, the "C.A.S.B."(Association of Friends of Biella's Pathways) has been involved, since the seventies, in promoting the improvement and listing of the pathway network in the Biella area, carefully marking out the territory and publishing a periodic newsletter called "Sentieri del Biellese" ("Pathways of the Biella area").
With close connections to CAI (Italian Alpine Club), it has, to date, carried out extremely important works, among which are:

  • Creating a register of Biella's pathways, which means registering and attributing to each of them an unequivocal code number which is officially recognised and adopted by mapmakers.
  • Creating signposts on many of the paths, with full respect for any regional laws in force.
  • Collaborating with public Bodies to make them aware of any problems regarding the pathways and obtaining adequate intervention in case of necessity.

The Association proposes the following itineraries which are among the most interesting and most beautiful of them all:
