    Daniel Hall reviewed Mount Barro Loop

    8 days ago

    I completed this hike in July 2019 and struggled to find clear instructions on how to do it - so here is my advice!

    It’s really easy to get out here by taking the train to Lecco (I came from Milan). You then need to walk through town, cross the bridge over the lake towards Malgrate. There are buses from Lecco station but walking isn’t far.

    As soon as you’ve crossed the bridge, cross the road onto the mountain side and start walking up the incline towards Malgrate. You’re looking for a small road - via Valle Scura, only minutes from the big roundabout. It then steeply inclines through an arch - keep ascending and you’ll see signs towards Pian Sciresa and the trailhead start with a map.

    Your next waypoint is Sasso della Vecchia but ultimately keep following signs to Vetta which is the summit.

    Signage isn’t perfect - really you want to keep heading up! Coming down there are signs towards Lecco, which I followed but it took me back the way I came up. I think the sign was misaligned.

    There is no water on the trail - be prepared.

    I hiked in a cross trainer and struggled on the dry summer gravel and surface - i’d recommend a hiking shoe with moderate ankle support or at least a crossover.

    You’ll be ascending approx 2,500ft from Lecco, 7-8 miles duration in total round trip.
