After Trivio di Fuentes (Colico) along the State Road 36 come to Novate Mezzola, 10 km from Fuentes. Just after the train station square, take the road on the right that ends up at Mezzolpiano (316 m) where you'll find the entrance to Val Codera on the orographic right (right when facing downvalley). The A6 trail starts here (signs). Climb ascending switchbacks along the dry southern side of Mount Avedé. Then enter the valley over a gentle slope to come to the village of Avedé at 791 meters of elevation (1 hr and 15 min). It's on a small, level, grassy area among chestnut trees and offers a beautiful view of Novate and Como Lakes. From here the mule path zig zags to cross the wide valley in front of the town of Codera (825 m) which you can get to over a short ascent.
