We hiked this from Breglia Village which adds a few km length and a few hundred metres elevation. Beautiful hike and amazing views, although we were caught in afternoon storm/rain.

Lovely hike, very easy until Rifugio Menaggio, an ideal mountain hut & restaurant to stop and have a wonderful meal with a breathtaking lake view 1000 meters above Lake Como. From here it is an interesting trail to the summit of Mt Grona, with steep switchbacks on a narrow trail path in the upper part. Not dangerous, just a nice feeling of higher mountain terrain. You don’t have to come down the same way, in fact I’d recommend walking down a bit northeast into the saddle to make the loop back to Rifugio Menaggio, as you can figure out from the map. Enjoy!!

Brilliant trail. Completed up and down in around 3.5 hours. Clearly marked. Really beautiful views! Couple of scrambling bits and a great summit! ♥️

Beautiful trail! I did not get to the top, ran out of time & it required some scrambling up rocks for .5 km at the summit. It started raining on the way down!

Hike surpassed expectations. Very scenic drive there and walk up. Be prepared for very steep inclines and beautiful and amazing views of both snow covered mountains and lake como. Trail was in good shape and well marked. Also would suggest paying the 3 euro parking fee to drive up toward trailhead to avoid less exciting hiking.

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
