Description

Mount Legnone ( 2609 m )  is the highest peak of the Orobie Lecchesi. It is a very popular mountain that offers itineraries suitable to everyone in areas of average altitude , while the routes toward the peak are suggested to experienced hikers.

It is possible to climb on the Mount Legnone peak starting from Rifugio Griera ( mountain hut , 1700 m ). You go on following the military road that starts in Pagnona and you travel all the Mount Legnone south crest. It intercepts , in some points , the military road until the Bocchetta Alta of Legnone ( 2395 m ). From here you proceed through the crest until you reach the peak. Along the route there aren’t trail signs , but the paths are clear and the direction is intuitive.

Once you reach the peak you can see the peak cross and you can also admire a breathtaking panorama on Valtellina , on Lake Como and on its mountains.
