Looking for a reason to head to Switzerland? We’ve got five.
Welcome to Ascona-Locarno, home to sweeping valleys, alpine lakes, and some of the best running trails in the world. In the short film 5 Trails to Run Before You Die, outdoor video production company Filme von Draussen showcases five of the top trails in the region. Add these to your bucket list.
1. Monte Gambarogno
Lake views and a low-alpine summit make up this 4.7-mile trail on the southern shore of Largo Maggiore. You’ll hit the trickiest ascent right in the beginning and enjoy a slow descent on your way back that makes for the perfect cool down. Just be sure to watch your step on the technical, rocky terrain.
