Since the weather this weekend it seems to perfect for hiking, shall we have a short hike to the royal mountain of Ronco Scrivia?
If it were so, let’s meet at 10:00 at Ronco Scrivia train station… and head up to the top of Monte Reale, across chestnut woods and pudding stone formations. The mountain peak hosts the shrine of Loreto, where once stood a castle. The shrine rises at a height of Protected content and can offer Protected content views over the Alps and the sea. While spotting the Alps looks a bit unlikely, we should have clear views over the west, south and east.
Despite there being almost Protected content of elevation gain, hike is rated as “T” (easy). Hiking time should be around 3 hours.
