Easy hike with awesome reward. Starts at a parking lot in Ciona next to Osteria Ciona. Walk through tiny town and next to several homesites before getting to the trailhead. Once you get to the top where the restaurant is and the disembark point for the cable car, use the restroom and take in the views to the southeast before heading up another hundred feet or so to the church. The top of the church provides the best panoramic views.
