Description

Circular route that takes place between 350 m to 850 m, therefore also suitable for hot weather. Quite heavy, suitable for those who are used to walking in the mountains.
Skip to numerous points of interest and different environments: forest, forests, crops.

Best to start at Pomino, where you can park and refuel with water and food. It rises from Pieve di Pomino and follow the path of memory (SM) which passes from the house of Berceto (memorial) and then get to the Oratory of the Madonna dei Fossi, where the path form a crossroads. Continue on the path SM, which follows the first part of the path 5 and then turn in a southerly direction, passing by the house, and come to a crossroads in the clearing.

Continue down the dirt path 31, and arrive at the picturesque village of Castelnuovo, which we cross before falling in the woods and divert the path 33.
Once on the road, follow it for 200 m and then descend to the north on the road to Rio. The dirt road descends gradually until Torremozza, then the path 33 to fall back into the forest, until you reach the road that leads to the field.

Near the Chapel of Terreno leave the road (marked with 53) leads to cases, and instead go down following the 33, from the Bridge and the remains of the picturesque Mill of Pinzano. Now we have to go back to the dirt road, passing by the Church of S. Lucia the cake and then follow the path that goes to SM a country road to the medieval hamlet of Pinzano.

From Pinzano the trail climbs towards SM East, using part of the road, and returning to Pomino.
