There is parking at the start at Rifugio Pornito. This is a well maintained trail up to the Christ the Redeemer statue. Make sure you stop off on the way up to see the Church of San Michele Arcangelo. Beware that there's no shade (probably not a great hike in the summer heat) and no restrooms (plan ahead). This is a popular descent for mountain bikers, so you you might need to scramble to the side if you see them coming.

Overall, great trek, challenging climb and awe-inspiring views. I heard cow bells during most of the ascent but never close to any of the sheep I heard calling out. I started about 0930 and saw no other human being except for a courageous mountain biker descending. As others have stated, there is little to no shade, no water, and no WC. I was surprised to be greeted by a big ole cow at St Michele Sanctuary. Arrived around 1130 at the very top, to the Statua del Cristo Redentore. I would not do this trek without sticks (hiking poles).

Sehr zu empfehlen! Man parkt das Auto am besten am Restaurant Rifugio Pornito, wo auch gleich der Trail Head ist. Von dort aus ist die Aussicht die ganze Zeit auf dem Weg nach oben grandios. 100m unter Spitze mit der Redentore Statue undbedingt noch bei der Kirche Erzengel Michael halten, diese ist in den Stein gebaut. Wanderschuhe sind zu empfehlen, da es ein sehr steiniger aber gut gepflegter Weg ist. Wenn man Hunde mit hat, am besten eine Leine mitnehmen, da es oben Hunde gibt, die Ziegenherden bewachen. Wenn man nicht zu nah ran geht und die Ziegen in Ruhe lässt, tun die aber nichts. Ausreichend Wasser mitnehmen und damit rechnen, dass es außer an der Kirche, kein bisschen Schatten gibt.

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.

Great Hike, well marked, but the aggressive dogs guarding the herd of goats near the end of the trail was an unwanted encounter for sure .

What an amazing hike! Incredible views and great sights to see along the trail. Madonna della rupe, the church of San Michele (Michael the archangel), and the statue of Christ at the top- all make this a beautiful trail and an awesome way to see the mountains in this area. There is a maintained rocky trail but it does include some loose terrain and some steeper areas. I wouldn’t call this a kid friendly trail but anyone in decent shape should have no problem. I highly recommend this trail, it was an awesome experience.
