next hike

Sunday, August 30th:

 
Moneglia

 
The sun will be high, the temperature pleasantly warm, the sea should be calm: who’s up for returning to the emerald waters of the secluded craggy coast of Valletta (Moneglia) one year later?

Reaching Valletta is not straightforward, as it involves a T/E (easy/medium) hike, with 250 metres of elevation gain. It takes around 2 hours for the complete loop from the town of Moneglia and back.

You may read more about the trail on:
http://proloco.monegliaonline.it/index.php/turismo-menoloco-79/le-escursioni-menoloco-80/la-valletta

Should anyone fancy conquering a peak before going to Valletta, we might try to get to the cross of Monte Comunaglia (430mt): we never made it up there, we would probably need one extra hour for the bonus hike.
