TOSSIGNANO-CASTAGNO D'ANDREA

16_MontedellaVolpedallaSelladiCaFaggia_MaxCosta.jpgFrom the ancient village of Tossignano, clinging to a gypsum cliff near the remains of the castle, though a long ridge trekking you will hike along the most of the Vena del Gesso and surrounded by orchards, vineyards and woods you will come to Carnè. Some of the exposed stretches of the ridge trail might be challenging for those who fear the heights: the Park, though, set signage for alternative routes along the northern slope. The second day from Carnè you will walk the so-called “trail of the ridges”, the great divide between Sintria and Lamone valleys, and then descend to Marradi. With the third stage you will walk towards the Foreste Casentinesi, into the woody landscape of the Romagna region mountains: halfway, you will pass the Gamogna Hermitage, then the Tramazzo valley and finally you will reach the banks of the Lago di Ponte. On day 4, though a short and very relaxing stage, you will reach the Colle di Tramazzo and then the village of San Benedetto in Alpe, located under the ancient Benedictine Abbey. On day 5, from the village of San Benedetto in Alpe you will follow the crowded walk that leads to Aquacheta Waterfalls, and then you will descend the Tuscan side until you reach Castagno, at the feet of Mount Falterona.
