  • We started from Verceia , we paid 5 euros to the bar val of rats to drive the pastoral agro road that leads to the start at an altitude of 912 meters! From the valley of the rats we walked the trellis to the village of St. George. The path is all flat apart from the descent to the village which then turns out to be a nice climb for the return (150 of altitude, little). It is a nice walk suitable for families even with small children but accustomed to walking. Round trip is about 11 km. You walk along the tracks with a beautiful landscape that ranges from Lake Como in the distance to Lake Mezzola, to the rivers and the Keystone valley... for this reason I recommend going on a sunny day,limpid to fully appreciate the lookout. Towards the Valley Codera and St. George the path changes by presenting many sections in the gallery where you need a torch to illuminate, boots, sweatshirt or jacket depending on the season because it is cold , it is damp. Arriving in San Giorgio is a pretty village with drinking water fountain, a nice small ethnographic museum, a small church, benches,wc (we found them open), beautiful meadows where you can have picnics or play. From there start the trails to Novate Mezzola, the Val Codera and other villages. If you go in mid-October you find a nice place to make chestnuts too!! Nice outing, the advice... attention to the pastoral road that at times is paved while at times it is full of potholes,dirt, not very nice.

  • Yesterday we left Verceia and walked the trail of the trachleon to st. George village with our girls of 2 and 9 years old! The route is very nice, flat and safe for the children! Before leaving for the route you have to buy the pass in one of the bars of verceia that at a cost of 5 euros per day allows you access to the valley of Ratt. Then reach the road leading to the trellis, find parking at the side of the road and continue on foot to the beginning of the route! From there a spectacular scenery will open up to your eyes with fantastic landscapes to admire, interspersed with tunnels carved into the mountain where children have a lot of fun. I recommend you bring sweatshirts and torch to the galleries! At the end of the route you can go down to St. George's village and stop for a picnic in the shade of a tree!! I remind you that there are no bars or shops all the way so have lunch and water!
