Description

This is a very beatifull hike that start's from Arbedo and goes up all the valley to the new Gesero hut, and then goes all the way down to the rail station of Bellinzona, on the way up you see the laghetto d'Orbello (lake) and the monti di Cò, and almost at the top you go by at the alpe di gesero.

On the way down you cross some great viewpoints like Sasso Guida and Motto della Croce.

Its pretty a long hike with more than 1800 meter altitude diffrence, but overall its a safe hike.

NOTE: On FATMAP the trail from laghetto d'Orbello to Alpe del Gesero is not yet shown, but on the spot its a very good market trail (Its the only one in the Arbedo Valley)
