Hi Walkies,

Hot days coming. The plan? Hike above 2,000m with a remarkable panorama, then go for a dip/swim back down in the valley.

Many see the series of waterfalls above Biasca when riding on the Autostrada. It actually come from a lake at 2,089m. The highlands there are impressive. On this day, we plan to hike at the top, and swim at the bottom of these waterfalls.

This time, we offer the choice between a bit of a challenge (not as closely challenging as Cima di Biasca, if you remember that one...), and a truly, very easy, relaxing walk around the small lakes and ponds.

We will then all drive down to Biasca, and take a 30 min. walk to the base of the waterfalls, to chill in their waters.

Note: from Malvaglia, we still have a 40 min. ride up the mountains till 1,999m!

The challenging version is a T2, with some T3 sections. Suitable for all our regular hikers. Including 2 peaks: Mottone and Mottone di Cava.
Distance: ca. 6.5 km. Uphill/downhill: ca. 500m.
