This itinerary follows the banks of the three largest waterways in Cordignano: the Meschio river, the Friga stream and the Caron stream. The main residential areas of the area have sprung up along the banks of these waterways. In the past there was also an important proto-industrial activity connected to the power of water that operated mills, hammers and sawmills. Currently the area has historic and modern buildings, as well as an industrial archaeology, with a very varied rural environment.
You can park in the widening close to the bus stop, in front of the Church of San Zenone (XIII century). Turn right and pass a capital dedicated to the Madonna del Carmine, then cross the street to take via Montello. A tombstone is placed on the cross in memory of a tragic episode of the partisan struggle. Once on the bank of the Friga-Caron stream, continue to the right until you reach a bridge, pass it and keep to the right. Near a sharp bend, continue straight along the bank of the Caron stream, which here becomes grassy. Entering the municipal territory of Cappella Maggiore, pass a small bridge and continue to the left in via Borgo Gava. From here take via Torrente Carron on the left. Continue to the right until Via dei Casali, here keep right on the Grava road. Turn into Via della Ghiacciaia until you reach Via della Paglia. Cross the road and take Via Mattarella on the right, for a short detour to the Chiesetta della Santissima Trinità, also known as the Mattarella, of early medieval origins. Retracing our steps or continuing along via della Mattarrella, reach the "Pagoda" roundabout and take Via Cadore.
To avoid the detour to Cappella Maggiore, after leaving Via dei Casali, turn left onto Strada di Grava, which immediately leads us to the intersection with Via Cadore. Cross the street to take via Aldo Moro and after a few hundred meters, at the first intersection keep to the left, passing in front of a suggestive house decorated with pebbles. Outside the house you can also see ancient millstones.
Cross the narrow bridge and turn left into Via Mazzini, after a few dozen meters you can admire on the left the islet of the Cristo del Meschio, so colled for the beautiful wooden crucifix, by Francesco and Remigio Pagotto. Near a bend, before this road enters the busy main road, it is possible to continue along the right bank of the river Meschio, up to the hamlet of Santo Stefano.
Once in Santo Stefano, cross the bridge and the road, take via Caranzina and keep the right to stay on the bank of the Meschio (left side of the current). Continue to the dirt road that leads to the Pinidello elementary school and past the schools turn right and make a stretch on the sidewalk of the main road. When you arrive at Via Monte Negro, cross the street and take Via D. Chiesa, until you reach Piazza di Pinidello, with the Church of San Rocco.
Continue behind the church to the left on via Filzi, if the grass is cut it is possible to go up again on the embankment near a pink house, otherwise continue along the road. Once in Via Pasubio Sud, turn left and, paying attention to the cars, cross the bridge. Then take immediately the lower left bank and continue straight to enter Via delle Frighe. Once again on the road, cross via Monte Grappa, staying on the embankment, turn right at the first fork (civic 19) to take via Montello and return to Silvella. At the crossing turn right to return to the parking lot.
