Tour description

Reach Monte Comino with the modern suspended cable car that departs next to the main road, not far from the Verdasio stop on the Centovallina train.
Monte Comino is situated on a wide, natural terrace in a very sunny location. The first part of the trail is characterized by several ascents and descents. From the arrival point of the cable car head toward the small church of Madonna della Segna. Just a little further ahead is the Pian della Segna peat bog, with plant and animal species typical of marshy environments. Turn right in the direction of Dröi. At the junction continue straight ahead on the same trail, which starts to descend more sharply, until you reach Selna. From Selna walk toward Costa, from where the trail descends along a small valley and then ascends on the other side, and then reach Pila, a characteristic cluster of old houses. Another half hour downhill and you reach Intragna. Here, visit the Ethnographic Museum of Centovalli and Pedemonte as well as the highest bell tower in Ticino, which you can climb. If you wish to shorten the hike, walk until Costa and then take the small suspended cable car down to Intragna.
