Hi Walkies,

Seems like a sunny Sunday is coming, so let's grab it! Hopefully forecast stays good.

The "Eagles Nest" on a range dividing Valle di Blenio and Valle Santa Maria has an impressive panorama (when not in clouds...)

We will meet at Capanna Gorda for Caffine/Coffee-out, and start walking from there. First to Punta di Larescia (The Eagles Nest), then along the wide crest to Passo Bareta, and and nice, longer way down. Short version: Only Punta di Larescia.

Difficulty: T2 (regular mountain hike)

Full version:
Distance: 10.6 km
Uphill/downhill: 765m

Short version:
Distance: 4.5 km
Uphill/downhill: 435m

Drivers: Google Maps shows that the road ends a few km before the capanna. Wrong. Good road untill 200m before the capanna. "In auto da Largario, oppure dal 1° tornante della strada del Lucomagno tra Olivone e Camperio, si imbocca la stradina di montagna seguendo le indicazioni "Piancabella-Gorda", la strada porta fino all'alpe di Gorda."
