When I am near Lugano, I love to hike to the hut San Lucio. The hike is easy, starts in Bogno (Valcolla) and ends between the border with Italy and Switzerland.
There are two trails (both easy) but if you don't want to hike on a mountain trail, you can also take the forest road, which starts at the Scuderia San Lucio. It is longer, just as beautiful as the other, but much easier.
At the hut (the Swiss one) they are super dog friendly and the dogs can do what they want as long as they don't disturb the horses and cows.
If you stay at the hut, you can plan many hikes from there, like the Gazzirola peak, the Camoghè peak, the Fojorina peak or even a hike to Monte Bar.
This hike is great in any season. If it has rained, there are also fountains along the way, but to be on the safe side, better take enough water with you.
