HIKE TOUR OF THE TWO PEAKS
REMEMBER NOT TO LEAVE WITHOUT...
Loop route, 910 meters ascent, 910 meters descent, 17.6 km, only suitable for hiking. Trekking poles and ankle-supporting hiking shoes are recommended.
To tackle the route at its best, the following are required:
Starting from Passo del Brallo (950 m), which is 2.3 km away from the hotel and can be reached by car or on foot following SP 89. From here, follow SP 88 towards Bralello and continue towards Cima Colletta, then take the path on the right (1 km). Cross SP 88 again, then follow the CAI trail 101, also known as the Annibale trail, until you reach the abandoned ski lifts of Cima Colletta (3 km, 1480 m), where you can enjoy the beautiful views of the Staffora Valley and the Trebbia Valley.
From there, start descending on the trail 101 until you reach SP 88 at Passo della Colla (5 km, 1340 m). Continue straight on the paved road, then after about 2.5 km, take a left turn (7.5 km, 1520 m), which is easily recognizable by the barrier that prevents cars from passing. Continue on the steep paved road until you reach Monte Lesima (9.5 km, 1724 m).
The views are breathtaking, you can admire the Staffora Valley, a large stretch of the Trebbia Valley, Monte Chiappo (1699 m), and on clear days, you may even be lucky enough to see the Ligurian Sea. From there, start descending on the paved road for a few hundred meters in the opposite direction, then take the right turn that leads to the CAI trail 101, which you should follow until you reach Passo della Colla again (13.2 km, 1340 m). From there, follow the same trail you took during the descent from Cima Colletta in reverse.
After about 700 meters, there is an unmarked right turn (CAI 109) that you should pay attention to, as it is slightly exposed, and follow it until you return to BOCCO. Continue until you reach Passo del Brallo (17.6 km, 950 m).
