Despite its short distance of less than 10 km (one way), this cycle-walking route is a real jewel. Unimaginable for anyone who travels the adjacent roads full of traffic, Piovene-Rocchette, Velo, Cogollo and Valdastico, especially at the mouth of the valley with junctions and crossroads at the exit of the motorway.

The track is made ​​on the grounds of the former railway of Rocchette-Arsiero, within the rail network between Torrebelvicino, Schio, Thiene, Rocchette (to act as a junction), Arsiero and (subsequntly) Asiago, built in 1885, with a narrow gauge then converted to a standard gauge, expanded in 1910 towards Asiago with the track of "Costo" with a rack and reduced gauge. Then the track of Arsiero was modified in 1933 to a standard gauge, and the route was eventually closed in 1964.

It is a walk suitable for everyone, quite "busy" with cyclists, runners, walkers, moms with strollers, especially on Saturdays and Sundays during spring and summer. The route is also perfect for Nordic walking.
