Periplo of Resegone is a trekking that takes place on the mountain symbol of Lecco city , and that allows to enjoy a breathtaking panorama that spaces on Lake Como , on Alps and Appennines.
Starting from the square of the cable car that leads to Piani d’ Erna in Lecco ( Versasio : about 600 m ) , the journey begins with a nice laned in the middle of the wood and then continues going through the pastures of Pizzo d’ Erna. In the final part of the hill you have to go on a steep and hard trail in the Canal of Val Negra. Once you reach Rifugio Azzoni ( 1860 m ) and the peak cross , situated in a panoramic point near the Mount Resegone top , you go down to Piani d’ Erna , walking through Passo del Giuff and from here you reach Versasio. The trail is recommended especially for its wonderful landscapes that you can admire in the intermediary line , when you cross Pian Serrada.
