While waiting to resume our long weekend journeys to Germany, is anyone up for yet one more weekend in Canton Ticino?

The idea this time is to have a minihike in Ascona on Saturday and a more demanding hike in Malcantone on Sunday.

On Saturday, let's do the 90' trail on the Mountain of Truth, described on: Protected content

This will allow us to get to the Balladrum lookout point (over Lago Maggiore), take a peek at the guitar festival in Locarno and... perhaps draw some energy from the mystic mountain of Truth?

As for Sunday, let's see if we can combine 2 hikes in one:

1) Protected content
2) Protected content

If it's sunny. we might do more from path #2 and less of #1, while if it's more cloudy we could spend more time on path #1 and see how high we can reach without a cable car. In this case, Alpe Pianca or Plan Pulpito would be our goals (according to the path description, Plan Pulpito would already allow us to walk with a bird's-eye view over Lago Maggiore on one side and Lago di Lugano on the other).

As for the night, the plan is to spend it either in Chiasso or in Mendrisio... so as to get the powerful TicinoTicket.

Train: on Saturday, we can either catch 9:43 or 12:43 from Milano Centrale to Chiasso
