Stage description

N.B.: We don't have an English description of the stage just yet. We'll give you the German version for now until the English version is ready.

Ausgangspunkt der Markierung in Porto Ceresio ist der Bahnhof. Von hier ist der Weg zunächst hervorragend gekennzeichnet. Zunächst folgt der Weg dem See, bis es steil aufwärts bis Cuasso al monte geht. Hier folgt man zunächst einer recht stark befahrenen Autostraße.

Weiter steil aufwärts, dann gemütlicher bis Monte Piambello. Von dort geht es mäßig bergab bis Boarezzo und weiter nach Ganna. Hier beginnt der Naturpark Campo dei fiori.

Es geht zunächst auf einem steilen und sehr schönen Weg aufwärts bis Brinzio.
