Monte Zucchero, Valle Verzasca
Located in the Valle Verzasca, this is a wild run in a quiet region of the Alps. Traditional, gray Rustici, stone farm houses, dot the hillsides and goats graze in the high terrain. You may even have the summit of Monte Zucchero to yourself. Despite being the second-highest in the region, it’s less often summited than nearby peaks. The trail makes a steep climb and a little scramble to the summit. The downhill side of the mountain is rolling with vast traverses, but still challenging, alternating luxurious, grassy cruising with rock-hopping up and down small rises. All the way weaving through tall tawny grass and golden larch back down to the river in the valley below.
