Resegone and Piani d’Erna

Admire it, climb it.

 

Resegone mountain is the symbol of the Lecco Pre-alps and it is perfect for short breaks, both for families and less expert hikers, and for keen mountaineers, thanks to a series of easy trails and more strenuous routes, including via ferrata climbs.

A natural balcony over the city
Dominated by the majestic peak of the Resegone mountain, the Piani d'Erna are a point of arrival for family trips and the starting point for more difficult excursions. The classics suitable for anybody follow the Sentiero Natura trail to the Stoppani and the Alpinisti Monzesi mountain refuges. While the Creste trail is much harder and goes from Passata to Resegone in 4 hours.

Vertical climbs
The solid rock of Resegone has been popular with climbers since the thirties and forties. The Bastionata Ovest, Torre Elisabetta, narrow Torre C.A.I. and Bastionata Sud offer interesting routes with pitches of various lengths, while sport climbing has been developed on the famous cliffs at the slopes of Resegone and Pizzo d’Erna (Versasio, Placca delle Sorprese and Parete Stoppani). The very well-known and popular via ferrata routes on the Resegone range included the Ferrata del Centenario from Passo del Fò to Pian Serrada, the “Gamma 1” up to Pizzo d’Erna and the “Gamma 2” to Resegone. All of these, and the last two in particular, are very difficult.
 

 

Highlights

1. Children. The Multi-sensory Path (Percorso Polisensoriale) is worth a visit, suitable for all and teaches about nature through the senses: touch, sight, hearing and taste. Here, in fact, you can touch elements in nature with your hands and feet and observe the animals who live here.

2. The table car. Those wanting to shorten their hike or enjoy a relaxing day without too much effort, can got up to Piani d'Erna on the cable car.

3. Museums. The multimedia Alpine museums such as the Lecco Alpine Observatory (Osservatorio Alpinistico Lecchese), in Palazzo delle Paure in Lecco and the Villa Gerosa House Museum in Piani dei Resinelli for fans of mountaineering history.

4. Culture. The San Nicolò bell tower in Lecco, known as the 'Matitone' or 'big pencil', is another "summit", that offers a unique, breath-taking view of the mountains and the city.

5. Traditions. To find out what life is like in one of the smallest villages in Italy, you need to visit Morterone, a mountain hamlet with just under 35 inhabitants.
