Start in Menaggio, go up to Borgo Castello and towards Loveno. Then follow signs to Pianura. At the cemetery go right to Barna. In Barna, on the small square Piazza del Tavolo there's a sign to La Piazza, a trial marked with the numer 3.
At La Piazza the trial to Tampia is well signed. From Tampia it goes downhill through the woods, but it's also well signed, and you get to Monte Madri. From here follow the signs to Mulino Chioderia (good lunch spot) and then it goes back to Pianura and Menaggio.
