Hiking Trail #1

The hiking trail that leads from Cadro to Vetta Gazzirola  counts as one of the more adventurous trails in Switzerland.

The hike up to Vetta Gazzirola takes about 12h and goes from Monte Boglia to Denti della Vecchia and to the summit of Fojorina. We suggest to stay over night in San Lucio, on the border to Italy and to continue the hike the following day.
