Col D'Anzana, Lughina, Tirano

Pescia Bassa in Val Saiento (Canton Grigioni _ CH) - Tirano

Part of the route takes place in the Canton Grisons on the Swiss ter- ritory by climbing up through Val Saiento. Col d'Anzana marks the line between Italy and Switzerland and offers a beautiful view on middle Valtellina and the Orobic Alps. The descent splits up into two: the first part up to Lughina is linear and pleasant except a brief stretch with technical switchbacks, while the second part going down to Tirano tests your technical riding ability being a mule-track con- stantly sloping down.

The climb starts on a dirt road from the car park in Pescia Bassa at 1810 meters above sea level. Short after the Rifugio Anzana (2050 m) you take the well-traced trail on your left leading to the Pass, which can be only partially cycled on. From here on the route is indicated by red signposts with n. B301. From Col D'Anzana (2233 m) you descend some meters (notice board with map and indications _ sign step 1). The trail to Frantelone starts on your left: a long panoramic track at first, be- coming then a nice mule-track (sign step 2 _ 1740 m). Here the easier 3.6-km-long alternative dirt road to Lughina is signalled. If you decide to go on you have to take into account a series of technical switchbacks requiring attention and caution. The very long mule-track leading to the vineyards of Villa di Tirano starts from Lughina (sign step 3 _ 1430 m). You can also follow the easier downhill paved road. The nearby basilica of the Madonna di Tirano is the gateway to the same-name town.
