Cycling around the two Monticolo lakes

This is an easy bike tour that doesn’t ask too much of physical fitness.

Starting point and arrival is the railway station of S. Michele. Cycle on the road towards the lakes of Monticolo. After half of the way you turn left and follow a forest road that takes you to the little Monticolo lake (follow the signpost saying “Kleiner Montiggler See”).

Arrived at the lake you continue until you reach the southern shore of the big Monticolo lake. Right before the big right-hand bend after Appiano you turn left. Immediately after you turn right towards the hamlet Monticolo. At the left end of the hamlet you will see a forest road taking you across the wood and the Lavasontal valley back to the station of S. Michele.

Please note: when you plan to do this bike tour, please inform yourself on the conditions of the trail.
