This is popular hiking trail, so stop for hikers

Trail goes up and down for some hundred meters, then shifts steeply downward in switchbacks in loose gravel. Some short rock faces and stairs are difficult, but you can carry your bike down.
Very exposed but always secure and with a fascinating view over Riva and the Mt. Brione.

Watch out for the gps-route, the trails that lead off the route are extremely dangerous (the 418 or the really high ladders of the via ferratas) - you dont want to go up all the way back...

Access Info

Forest road to Bocca Giumella from Campi

      Snow + Wet + leaves at the top (north flank of the mountain..) making the access pretty dangerous.

       Snow + wet leaves made the top very dangerous. If you consider attempting this trail make sure it is dry and there is no snow. The rest of this very long trail is very difficult and turning back is at some point not an option... . There are some very exposed sections on this trail ("secure" in the trail description is interesting...). You should've mastered walking/carrying your bike in very difficult exposed terrain...
