Description of the route from San Mauro to San Raffaele (west-east direction)
Once out of Turi Horse Riding Center in San Mauro Torinese, turn left to Strada Bertolla. After a few meters, turn right on a private road becoming Via Trento. After street number 23, turn right and cross a small public garden with benches. Climb then along the bank of the channel, reaching Piazza Mochino.
Take Ponte Vecchio on the right, using a pedestrian route and, after crossing the bridge, turn left on a downhill trail running along the bridge. Turn right in Via 25 Aprile. Go ahead passing under Ponte Nuovo, until you reach and go beyond a roundabout. Go ahead until the road branches off before passing over Cimena Channel (on the left, the road sign "Via Malone"). Keep left and cross the bridge to go ahead, along the channel, until you cross it again by taking the first bridge on the left (road sign "Cava Mazzucchetti"). Turn immediately right on a small road running parallel to the bank, becoming a gravelly road shortly after.
