At the Abetone Pass there are two pyramids that were built on the Tuscan-Modenese border in 1777. On each pyramid the coats of arms of the States and the Latin inscriptions can be observed. From the pyramids (m.1385) leave the State Road n. 12 of Abetone and Brennero and take the paved road to the right that goes slightly towards the Uccelliera, after about 50 meters, turn right, entering the Boscolungo forest. It is advisable to park the car in the open space at the end of the road. After passing the metal barrier of the Forestry Corps, the path continues on a slight slope on a dirt road (loose gravel) that reaches the Abetone conifer forest after about two kilometers, a stone fountain. From the fountain take the path 00 that climbs straight up to Mount Maiori, it is also possible to continue to the left, taking the path 5 which goes around the Maiori mountain and rejoins the path near the Serrabassa. From the summit of Mount Maiori, you first descend to the mouth of the Verginina di Serrabassa and then on the dirt road you reach the Casetta di Lapo (1503 m), where the peak is opened during the summer. the refuge. From Casetta di Lapo the 00 CAI path climbs fairly quickly to the peaks of Mount Libro Aperto, reachable in less than two hours. Along the way you will see the cylindrical terms in stone that marked the boundaries between the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and the Duchy of Modena. After passing some sandstone rock layers, you'll reach the Selletta of the Open Book (1860 m). From here you go up to the summit of Monte Rotondo (m.1937), one of the two peaks (the other is that of monte Belvedere, m.1896) which give the characteristic conformation to the Open Book. From this position it is possible to admire suggestive views of the Apennine ridge and in particularly clear days even part of the Alpine arc. In the Modenese side of the Open Book you can observe, in the summer season, the flowering of the rhododendron. This, typical alpine essence, was implanted in these places about 200,000 years ago during the last glaciation. Our itinerary continues going down again to the Selletta del Libro Aperto, then to the right on a path that winds through the clearing, until you pass on the right a spring, then inside the "Vallon dei faggi" along a mule track that, through sparse beech-woods and mirtilleti, with some hairpin bends, leads back to Casetta di Lapo. Continue in the direction of Monte Maiori, near the junction you should take the path n. 5 which returns to the fountain.Show more
