Short but steep path leading from the Barzio cable car to the Buzzoni refuge
The path starts from Barzio (province of Lecco), at the cableway parking area; there is a sign which indicates wether the Buzzoni refuge is opened or not. Just follow the marks of the trail n° 19, there are a lot of signs leading to the refuge.
During the path, you'll find:A farm holidaysA few springs: some of them are not potable, we suggest you to bring your own water
Some torrents (there's no much water in summer)Flowers and butterfliesAn impressive woodThe cross with the path rising from Introbio town
All the item listed are shown on the POIs sections, with pictures and short descriptions
As you go out of the wood, you'll reach the refuge.
In our view is a nice path: the trail is all in the cool of the forest, so it's no hot even in summer. The whole path length is 6 km, with a difference in altitude of about 750 meters uphill, which makes the trail a bit demanding.
