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

Lightly crowded trail. The altitude profile for this takes the counter clockwise direction for the loop to the top. The very steep part near the summit is in a cow pasture on an uneven game trail, but it is quite manageable going up- coming down would have been challenging, so I recommend going counterclockwise. This trail does not actually go to the peak, but it is easy to figure out the path up- adds only 10 minutes and ~150 vertical feet. I would also suggest taking the side trail near the parking lot- this eliminates a brief walk on the road and takes you to the top of an abandoned ski hill. Negatives: the first half of the trail and the western side of the loop are active farm trails, so there are a decent amount of tractors and trucks that take up the whole road, causing hikers to walk off the trail. There were a lot of flies due to the livestock on and around the trail. They didn’t bite too much, but were bothersome. Positives: great summit views of the alps and lake Como. It was hazy when I went but not too bad. Open trail, so decent breeze and cooler towards the summit. Horses and cows grazing throughout the trail.

Great trail, long but without technical difficulties.
