About this hike
This hike starts at the lakefront of Brissago on Lake Maggiore, the last town before the Italian border. It then goes up the slopes of Mount Gridone, but not nearly to the peak of 2,186 m. You'll walk as far as the Madonna del Sacro Monte church, before descending back into the village.
