“Sentee di Sort” connects Moltrasio (in the hamlet of Casarico) with Cernobbio (in the hamlet of Rovenna) and extends close to the lake basin in a mountainous area.
It is a route mostly flat, easy and accessible, about 1,6 km long.
It offers beautiful panoramic views of the lake, the mountains of the Larian triangle and the underlying countries of both shores, as well as Como.
It crosses woods with a rich Mediterranean and Central European flora.
It runs along narrow terraces supported by dry stone walls that testify to the agricultural activity of the past and runs along important abandoned sites of Moltrasio stone extraction. The trail was reopened in 1994 by the volunteers of the Pro Rovenna Association with the collaboration of the Moltrasio section of the Italian Alpine Club.
In 2012 the municipality of Moltrasio, in its part of the route, carried out protective interventions, restoration works on the stone stairs and created a recreational area in the open space of the former Niascio quarry. In order to travel Sentee di Sort, first of all you have to reach the hamlet of Casarico (located in the highest part of the town of Moltrasio).
Beside the small Cappellina you will find the signs to continue on the path.
During the tour you can admire the quarries of Niasc of molasina stone and an old farmhouse called Boc de la Tugna, inside which there is a natural cave. Near the quarries there is a small parking area where you can stop and admire the view.
From here, walking for about 45 min., it is possible to reach Rovenna (fraction of Cernobbio).
Walking along the path, in any season of the year, puts you in touch with the beauty of spontaneous nature and creates harmony with the spirit!!!
