Wanted on the Tobacco map the night before, Monte Coppolo immediately struck me for its shape and position: a mountain of over 2000mt isolated and surrounded by stoic mountains such as Monte Grappa, Cima d'Asta, Pale di San Martino up to the Schiara. Departure from Lamon from “Le Ei” in an asphalted road with which you can reach a large parking lot where there is a small hotel and a nice restaurant. You take path 821 (just before the church on the right), you immediately enter a beautiful fresh forest. Nature does not change much up to an altitude of 1770m where there is a crucifix and plaques in memory of the First World War. From here the landscape becomes more essential and rocky. Climb in the direction of the Mezzaluna fork and you will be impressed by the huge rock wall of the Coppolo. Going up it is always on the right and it always makes a certain impression to walk so close to it, also considering the numerous boulders present here and there on the path and on the close vicinity.
Lamon, Veneto, Italy
After losing the path that leads to the fork (look carefully on the stone on the ground and well marked with a red arrow!). You climb a bit to reach the Crescent and from there you are stunned with the magnificent view of Brocon, the Pale di San Martino and the Cima d'Asta. After less than 15 minutes, not without encountering difficulties in two exposed and dangerous points due to the presence of rubbish, you arrive on the splendid peak dominated by a majestic steel cross. From here you can see a splendid 360é * panorama: Lamon is the master and Monte Grappa is on the same side. On the other, the Dolomites from Lagorai to Schiara. Basically you can also see Marmolada, Civetta and Antelao. In 2h (not mistaking the path!) You reach the summit with about 800m of altitude difference. If you just want to get some fresh air it can be a nice and comfortable trip by car.
Expert hikers - are generally signposted itineraries but with some difficulties: the terrain can consist of slippery slopes of grass, mixed rocks and grass, stony ground, slight snowy slopes or even single easy-to-climb rocky passages (use of hands in some places) . Although they are routes that do not require particular equipment, equipped sections can be presented even if they are not demanding. They require a good knowledge of the alpine environment, a safe step and the absence of vertigo. Physical preparation must be adequate for a fairly continuous day of walking.
