Great trail, long but without technical difficulties.

First off this is a hard hike. AllTrails needs to update this.

3800 feet in 3.2 miles isn’t a joke.

And plenty of people die on Monte Legnone. Don’t believe me? Lookup “morte” and “Monte Legnone”... there’s plenty of tragedies.

With that said let’s get to the first detailed review of this hike on AllTrails.

Reviews on other websites give completion times anywhere from 4.5 hours to 8+ hours round trip. I finished in 7 hours. I took lots of picture breaks and view breaks and a 20-ish minute lunch. Give yourself time if you like to linger and be sure to know the current sunset time. Also check the weather.

The drive up from Lake Como to the parking lot is an adventure itself! Very narrow and twisting and turning. Heads up on that.

The first mile from the parking lot is a good introduction to this hike. There’s some signs and directions. Also a sign tells you to bring a little firewood if you’re going to the top for people who get stuck. So if you see a couple twigs drag them on up. The trail is pretty leisurely as you pass goats and goat farms.

From the first mile to mile 2 you get to know what you’re up against. The trail gets rocky and increases in altitude quickly. There’s lots of great photo opportunities along the way.

From mile 2 to the summit it’s the real deal. The rocky trail has some scrambling and ropes to help you along.

I saw a herd of ibex when I was up there! Really cool to see.

From the sign post/trail junction 0.2 miles below the summit, the trail has iron rungs and ropes and gets narrow and unforgiving in places. Careful up there.

Up on the summit you can see the Matterhorn and all the way to Mont Blanc. The view is stunning in all directions.

Once you’re done soaking in that alpine air you head back down... and your knees will never forgive you.

This hike was the best thing I did while visiting Lake Como. It’s a beautiful hike.

It was somewhat challenging but worth the effort. I would recommend it to those over 75, like myself who enjoy walking and hiking for exercise

Ma mettete le traduzioni se volete fare affari

app ben fatta peccato la lingua inglese

molto bello per una prima uscita dopo la pausa invernale o per le prime volte per fare trail

Short walk from the stunning views at the top of the Pigra cablecar is the Belvedere lookout. Easy walk through town then through some woods to a bench and picnic table at the lookout.

It's an easy hike but with lots of breath taking views of the mountains. If you have a friend who is not into hiking :) you can go all the way to the rifugio Vodala (almost half way through the climb) by the ski lift, then continue the hike on foot to Monte Benfit.

Amazing hike .. views from the top are breathtaking. Take lots of water

Interesting and varied but not too difficult
