Hiking Trips and Tips N°2 – Resegone East Side Dayhike


For the second OUTDOOR GUIDE we have chosen an easy route that can be reached in less than an hour and a half from Milan. We opted for this one because the Resegone, one of the most interesting peaks in Lombardy, it’s usually crowded due to the eastern chairlift and the people coming from Erve. This path that we propose it’s not so famous which allows you to see Resegone from a different point of view.

Resupply & Water:

Resupply: You have to carry all your own food from start to finish, there are no suppliers along the route.

Water: On the way there are no drinking spots, looking at the map we were hoping for some stream but they have dried up.

Route / Conditions:


The path is always well signposted and in excellent condition, in the first part it’s surrounded by trees with a soft soil and in the second one, after “La Pasada“, it becomes more rocky and exposed on the ridge. It’s not difficult, but especially near Cima Quarenghi, it could become more challenging due to longer steps and a small chain (via ferrata). It’s also a good choice for running because of the large trail and the not so technical ground.
