Description

This limited traffic, paved road forms part of the Sasso Malascarpa e Lago Segrino (Malascarpa Saddle and Segrino Lake).

You'll start with a 600 m (2000 ft) climb in the first 3.5 miles, so maybe it's good that it's paved. There are rifugi (Mountain Huts) offering refreshments about 1/3 and 2/3 of the way up the initial climb if you find yourself in need of a breather. After the first 3.5 miles, the next 2.5 miles are mostly flat. You'll also enjoy some awesome views towards the south since you've worked your way up above the treeline.

Starting around mile five, the road winds near the ridgeline, so you've also got views towards the north. Keep heading towards the large radio/TV tower, and you'll reach the Sasso Malscarpa (Malscapra Saddle). Here there is an awesome cliffside overlook of Lecco and Lago di Garlate (lake). Advanced runners can continue on the Sasso Malscarpa to la Colma singletrack.

Monte Cornizzolo is a popular jumping off point for paragliders, so don't be surprised to see a line of paragliders slowly floating their way down to the valley.
