This route enables you to climb the Penz Hill overlooking the border town of Chiasso.
From Mendrisio you pass through the village of Genestrerio and the interesting naturalistic area of the Colombera, then climb towards Novazzano and down again to the slopes of the Penz; from here a steep mule track leads to Pedrinate and then a winding way through the woods of the moraine hill will take you back to the flat area of Chiasso.
On the way back to Mendrisio the climb towards Coldrerio will enable you to ride over the national cycling route, which you will leave only to discover the characteristic village centre of Corteglia; it is a typical hillside village of the Mendrisiotto.
It is possible to have a guide.
