Description

This is a narrow singletrack on the treeless south face of Monte Bolleto with a high cross slope. At times, the combination of narrow singletrack and high cross slope may interfere with the upslope-facing pedal stroke, but with good control you should be able to ride the whole distance and anyways an inadvertent pedal strike won't send you too far down the mountain.

On the other hand, the trail stays at roughly the same elevation contour (1150 m; 3800 ft), which will likely be welcome since you'll have had a pretty good climb to get to this trail on either DTL: Brunate - Monte Boletto or DTL: Sentiero dei Faggi (Trail of the Beech Trees).

You can clearly see this treeless peak from the northern suburbs of Milano (on a clear day) and thus you can also see Milano from this trail on a clear day (like on a windy day or after a recent rain has washed away the smog).

The treeless southern face will be snow-free except in the coldest months of the year, but the north-facing, canopy covered DTL: Sentiero dei Faggi (Trail of the Beech Trees) may still have snow in late-April. If you are riding from Como via DTL: Brunate - Monte Boletto and find the DTL: Sentiero dei Faggi (Trail of the Beech Trees) to be snow-covered, you can take this to access some of the viewpoints of Lago di Como further to the east before you'll have to turn around due to snow.
