Starting point:
Val di Mello parking that you reach in 30 minutes walking from San Martino Val Masino or by shuttle for payment.

Trail description:
From Val di Mello parking come back in the direction of San Martino and locate on the right the sign to Bivacco Molteni Valsecchi. The trail walks through some chalets then climbs a big forest leading a bridge on the right. Pass the bridge and follow the well marked trail that passes in front of Casera del Ferro, 1658 m.

Now the trail climbs gently up to the right side of the valley reaching the upper part of the valley, 2088 m.
From here the trail is not well marked due to the high grass and to poor attendance. With a bit of care you can find the white and red signs on the boulders.

The trail continues climbing to the last steep section and reaching the Bivacco Molteni Valsecchi, 2510 m.
Super landscape!
