Made this trail from Bologna to Prato in the beginning of February '20. Overall, it was good enough, except that the first section (from Bologna to Sasso Marconi) had a lot of asphalt. Skip it if you can. Truly liked the second and third sections - absolutely stunning views!

We went late October, in the off season when the lift was not operating. Super foggy day so that’s why we had the trail to ourselves, but we couldn’t see the iconic range around us. Beautiful regardless. Bring your trekking poles

wonderful hike with amazing views. the road up to the starting point are narrow and not well maintained but it is ok. we did not go all the way to the top but stopped at the church built in the mountain side. so cool! the second best part of the hike was the little restaurant at the trail head. such a great place to relax after the hike.

incredible trail, every turn you will want to stop and take a photo. I went counterclockwise to start, which you'll get most of the elevation climb out of the way in the first half.

beautiful views

Nice hike, I would suggest to stay on the 6 to balest, the climb is steep but the view amazing. When you get to the first open field the route in-app takes you to the left, of the bench there, but keep right. When you get to seceda its like walking in the zoo, dont really recommand this hike, there are lots of other scenic hikes around.

A very charming hike. It is easy and flat. One gets to hike between ruins.

Skip the 6K gravel drive. Take the gondola up to the top and begin the hike. The hike is basically ski runs. Gondolas and cables.

Moderately difficult hike, took us about 4 hours. Took a sight detour on the way back and got onto another smaller peak, see the recording. Very nice views of the lake and mountains. Hardly any shade though, so does get very hot and sweaty in the weather we had which was around 30’ and full on sun

Amazing trail! The first 2.5 miles are really really tough incline though. There is a small lift you can take if you want to skip it.

Views were fantastic! Rainy for some late afternoons which made the rocky areas very difficult, but the memories, new friends, and sights along the way made it so rewarding. Would hike portions again!

Quite strenuous but worth it. You can drive probably a fifth of the way on pavement. The view and beer at the top is a great reward.

Amazing scenery, fun for fairly experienced rider

TMB - Day 6 From Rifugio Bonatti, Italy to La Fouly, Switzerland Views of the Val Veny are our backdrop en route to Grand Col Ferret. We experienced hiking at its finest with alpine meadows, rushing streams and stunning views of the Val Veny as a backdrop en route to the Grand Col Ferret (8320'), the border between Italy and Switzerland. Mont Dolent towers above and its summit is the meeting point of the borders with France, Italy, and Switzerland. You'll continue to be amazed by fabulous close-up views of rocky spires and sparkling glaciers. Our grassy path ultimately leads us to our evening's auberge in the quiet but scenic village of La Fouly (5280'). We awoke to an incredible sunrise view of Mont Blanc from Refugio Bonatti before starting our hike further up the Italian Ferret Valley on the balcony trail to a stop for some thick delicious Italian hot chocolate and cappuccinos and then we proceeded on our long hike up to the pass and border between Italy and Switzerland (Grand Col Ferret) and views of Mont Dolent - which sits on the border of Italy, France and Switzerland. Many waterfalls and stream crossings. The Swiss side of Mont Blanc is much less dramatic than the Italian side and greener with more pasture land. Hiked down to a stop for a cold beer at La Peule in the Swiss Ferret Valley and on to La Fouly for the night. Hiking: 10.5 miles. Elevation gain: 2,746', Elevation loss: 4,167'. Terrain: Hillside traverse followed by steep descents and ascents on dirt trails; some short sections of exposure. We stayed at: Auberge des Glaciers La Fouly, Switzerland Tel.

This trail is a true gem, unexpected and unusual, with great balcony views about 2000 feet above the valley floor. Most of the trail runs flat along abandoned railroad tracks which were used to build the hydroelectric infrastructure. Then it passes through several real fun hiking tunnels. Better bring a headlight for these. Don’t miss making a little detour to the town of Cola, it’s gonna wow you all the way, almost confuse you, how such a lovely antique town can be there. The hike down through the mountain town San Giorgio is like a time walk through a millennia of history. There’s a carved stone where they used to mummify the dead. These towns are only reachable by foot. Another thousand feet down and you’re back on the valley floor. The hike is not difficult at all, it’s just a bit long. Very much recommended.

Beautiful trail. Would give it 5 stars if it was a bit more wild - there are electrical lines and water pipelines all along the trail, which sorta spoils it. The first half is the hardest, be ready for a pretty steep climb and bring lots of water. Oh, and it is pretty crowded.

One of the most beautiful pieces of the TMB, this hike takes a few extra miles to get to Rifugio Bonatti, but the views are well worth it! It's a lot of elevation earlier on, but the scenery in the main ridge path (up to Col de Tete) is AMAZING - some of the best views I've ever had in my life.

Great route. I did it with my girlfriend on a hot day in July. The view in top is simply breathtaking and the route to the top is very nice. Small minor is the wat back which was pretty bewildered and it was sometimes hard to get through the plants. Overall, I would defenitely recommand it!
