BRUNATE AND LA VIA DELLE COLME
ITINERARY: Brunate - San Maurizio - Monte Palanzone
DURATION: Around 5 hours
Events commence at S. Maurizio the highest part of the village of Brunate. You can drive to this point, walk there or take the cable-car (check out the itinerary “Brunate in funicolare”).
Cross the mule-track and continue ahead for "colme" passing the 'Baita Carla', the 'Baita Bondella', the 'Baita Bolletto' (1236 m.), the 'Monte Bollettone' (1204 m.) and finally arriving at the Monte Palanzone (1436 m.) above Faggeto Lario. The trek is nearly 4 hours from Brunate with the most unforgettable sights and views of the city and lake. From Monte Palanzone you can head down-hill to Molina, a fraction of the town Faggeto Lario and return to Como by bus.
The walk is not challenging and is suitable for all types of people.
This same trek could be done on a mountain bike, remembering that the descent to Molina is fast and steep.
