Starting from Tremenico and heading toward Colico, this route offers a fascinating ride through the historic roads and trails leading to Mount Legnoncino.  The route begins in the village of Tremenico. Arriving from Valsassina and Pagnona, Tremenico is the first village you encounter on the provincial road to Valvarrone. It can also be reached from the state road 36, Dervio exit, via Vestreno, Sueglio and Introzzo. It is possible to park your car at the Tremenico sports center. By the ancient mule tracks, one climbs towards Subiale and Monte Lavadee. The road leads gradually uphill toward Monte Legnoncino, the small lake and the Roccoli Lorla refuge. Along the way there are spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Not to be missed is a visit to the Cadorna Line trenches present on the north side of Legnoncino. The descent is at times very steep on trails and mountain roads, from the Roccoli you descend to the Bellano Refuge and then continue in the direction of the villages of Sommafiume, Monte Piazzo and Posallo. From the hamlet of Posallo you descend quickly on a paved road passing the village of Villatico until you reach the center of Colico, on the lakeshore.

Itinerary Data


A new cycle network has been created in the Upper Lake Como area. There are 23 routes in two large areas along the lake's shores, for a total of 380 kilometers. Two routes are for beginners, 10 for intermediates, 8 for advanced cyclists, and 3 for experts. The difficulty scale and route tracking were verified by CAI experts, and an international evaluation standard was adopted in agreement with the Lombardy Region.

Along the routes, there are many panoramic points where you can admire the stunning beauty of Lake Como. The app provides all the information you need to safely navigate the routes, including directions to equipped areas, places of art and culture to visit, and events scheduled in the towns along the chosen route. You can also watch videos of the best panoramic views.

THE CYCLE ROUTES OF THE WESTERN NORTH LAKE COMO - There are 8 new routes at mid-mountain and high altitude, for a total length of 134 kilometers. The routes connect to existing connections between mountain towns and lakeside towns, where there is already a cycle path. The routes start in Sorico and pass through Montemezzo, Vercana, Trezzone, Livo, Peglio, Dosso del Liro, Gravedona ed Uniti, Stazzona, Dongo, Garzeno, Pianello del Lario, Musso, and end in Cremia.

THE CYCLE ROUTES IN THE VALSASSINA - There are 15 routes that allow you to climb from the lake to the Valsassina and Valvarrone, taking advantage of the trails on Mount Legnoncino; the loop circuits in the North Valsassina; the connections with the Valsassina cycle path; and the routes of the Val d'Esino.

WHAT ARE INTERNAL AREAS AND THE "UPPER LAKE COMO AND VALLI DEL LARIO" STRATEGY? - The "North Lake Como and Valli del Lario" Area Strategy was launched in 2018 as part of the National Strategy for Internal Areas 2014/2020. It involved 31 municipalities in the Valsassina, Valvarrone, Val d'Esino, and Riviera (Lecco) communities and the Valli del Lario and Ceresio communities (Como). The National Strategy for Internal Areas (SNAI) is a strategic plan designed to enhance and develop internal areas, which are often characterized by challenges such as depopulation, lack of services, and fewer economic opportunities. The goal is to promote the sustainable development of these areas by investing in infrastructure, services, the local economy, and the preservation of cultural and natural resources. The "Upper Lake Como and Valli del Lario" Area Strategy, implemented in the period 2018/2023, has made it possible to implement 31 projects for a total of 20 million euros, of which 5,285,000 euros were used to promote interventions to recover and enhance the heritage and to strengthen the cycle and hiking routes between the lake and the valleys.
