From Poschiavo on a paved road to Cologna and then evenly but long climbing up the hill, soon on a forest road. Second ascent then at Gugliel along the road up to Alp. Finally on a nice single trail through the forest, slightly ascending to San Romerio. Beautiful forest and sometimes great views.
From San Romerio not very imaginative to Viano. There again slightly ascending to Palü (unfortunately tarred), but from the border then adventurous, bumpy smuggler path via Roncaiola steeply down to Tirano.

Return journey after a fine dinner in Tirano then enjoy with the RhB (Pizzeria vis a vis Madonna di Tirano highly recommended).


Von Poschiavo auf Fahrstrasse (geteert) nach Cologna und dann gleichmässig aber lang ansteigend den Hang hinauf, bald einmal nur noch Fahrweg. Zweiter Anstieg dann bei Gugliel entlang Fahrweg hoch bis auf Alp. Schliesslich auf schönem Single Trail durch den Wald auf Höhenweg, etwas ansteigend nach San Romerio. Schöner Wald und manchmal tolle Aussicht.
Von San Romerio wenig ideenreich nach Viano. Dort wieder leicht ansteigend nach Palü (leider geteert), aber ab Grenze dann abenteuerlicher, holpriger Schmugglerpfad über Roncaiola steil hinunter nach Tirano.

Rückfahrt nach einem feinen Abendessen in Tirano dann mit der RhB geniessen (Pizzeria vis a vis Madonna di Tirano sehr zu empfehlen).
