Legnone and Legnoncino (Tremenico - Valvarrone)
At a height of 2609 metres Legnone is the highest peak of the Orobie Prealps in the province of Lecco, an extremely satisfying conquest for hikers who reach its summit. From the top it offers an exceptional 360 ° panorama over a large area of the Alps. The last stretch of the route to reach the summit becomes challenging so the ridge is equipped with fixed ropes.
Route: From the Roccoli Lorla Refuge 1463m - Alpe Agrogno 1644m - Cà de Legn 2180m - Monte Legnone 2609m.
At 1714m Monte Legnoncino is an easy walk, particularly suitable for families with small children. Starting from Rifugio Roccoli Lorla at 1463m, the summit can be reached along an easily accessible old military road in about an hour.
After a slight slope and a few hairpin bends, you reach a small terrace overlooking the lake, with a few picnic tables and benches. The view is already spectacular from this point, but the summit can be reached with a little extra effort.
