From the arrival of the cable car in Pigra (850 m) you walk towards the center of the town, crossing it and following the frequent signs of path 1; at a crossroads take the "Strada ai Monti" - path 1 which you follow for a few kilometers through the woods and up to the next crossroads (1250m) where you turn left onto a steep path which soon reaches Bocchetta di Pigra ( 1324 mt). Here path 1 continues to the right (N-NE) towards Mount Costone (1440 m). From the Costone a splendid 360-degree view towards Monte Rosa and all the main peaks of the Alps until you meet the Legnone and Legnoncino, across the lake and then to the right again the majestic Grigne. From Monte Costone go down again to Bocchetta and continue on the path towards Monte Sertore (1393 m); the show continues to be very panoramic and you can see the third peak of Pizzo Pasquella (1331mt). Here the view on the Como branch of the Lario is even wider and goes as far as Pognana and Faggeto Lario; on the left side the San Primo stands out on the peaks that surround it. Short rest, then you begin the descent towards until you reach Alpe Pianella and continue until you return to Pigra.
