Description

Hold on to your hats for this awesome descent. This is a steep, rowdy mule track that crashes down through a thick forest. There are a number of switchbacks, especially near the top. The path is filled with loose rocks and bumps to add to the melee.

The top of this trail is near the Bellavista station on the Monte Generoso cogwheel railway where there is a great view of Lago di Lugano (lake). The cogwheel railway runs from the Capolago station near the shore of Lago di Lugano at (271 m/889 ft) to the summit of Monte Generoso (1,701 m/5,580 ft). Bikes are allowed as far as Bellavista station at 1,223m/4,012ft.

The trail descends through the Valle dell'Alpe (valley) through which a small stream runs.
