2 days hike with 1 day (Sat) possible to join the group

  • May 10, 2013 · 7:15 AM

I have checked the weather. It's warmer and better in the South. And Friday it will clear in the South from mid-day on. So here is the plan:

We will do 2 days hike but those of you who can only do 1 day can join us on the second day.

Day 1, Friday: leaving Luzern by train on 07:18 h, arriving in Locarno at 09:57 h.

Hiking Orselina up to Cimetta cottage and than to Cardada (approx.. 4 h hike and 1500 m of altitude) from Cardada we can take the cable car down or if there is energy left we hike down. Staying at a Pension overnight: CHF 70.—

Day 2, Saturday: the 1 day hikers should take the train at Lucerne on 07:18 h arriving in Locarno at 10:13 h. We will meet you at the train station. From there we take a bus to Lavertezzo. We hike from Lavertezzo to Sonogno in the Verzasca Valley, one of the most beautiful scenic hiks. Approx.. 4 h and 700 m altitude). We will have Pizza at a Grottino and than travel back to Luzern by bus and train, leaving at 18:32 (earlier returns are possible), arriving at 22:41 h (latest)

Those who will join, please contact me by phone today[masked] that we can arrange the details. Specially those who will stay overnight. I have made a pre-reservation at the hostel and need to confirm tonight.

    I will watch the weather and decide tomorrow evening. Maybe we can do both 1 and 2 days hiking so a part of the Group can join on Saturday only and the others stay overnight at a cabine. I will Keep you posted on this site.

    Hi Renata!! I was thinking to create an event to hike the Pilatus or to do hiking for Interlaken at weekend, but if you want to go to Ticino it´s the same. The most important is not to stay at home this long weekend jeje. I could hike both Friday or/and Saturday and any route what you want. We are in contact to decide what route we do. Thank you!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
