SEASON From June to October
The route starts from Bognanco Fonti (650 m). From the centre of the town follow the road that runs alongside the beautiful parish church and returns on the provincial road which you follow as far as San Lorenzo, town hall, and Graniga. From here the road is much more narrow, steep and with stretches of ruined tarmac. Passing the turn off for the Gomba, you come to Alpe Vercengio and following some steep hairpin bends you arrive at San Bernardo where the road ends and the agro silvo pastoral (special limited traffic rural road) that climbs toward the Monscera begins. The road, except for a brief initial stretch, is tarmac as far as Alpe Paioni, then continues unmade but always possible to cycle on. After Alpe Monscera you climb straight ahead on the wide path that skirts Lake Monscera and finally come to the Monscera Pass. From the pass, following the signs for Rif. Gattascosa, you drop diagonally on the path until you cross again the track that leads to the refuge a little further on. With a very short walk (5 minutes) you can reach the beautiful Lake of Ragozza.
