Great hike with wonderful city views. A bit over grown in spots and long pants are suggested. Bring plenty of water and a snack. In certain parts it’s very rocky and keep an eye on the map, there are certain parts of the trail that aren’t marked very well. Sorry about be recording, I forgot to stop it when we finished. 3.2 miles long trail (supposedly).

Percorso molto bello e panoramico fino alla Piana (azienda agricola), facile - poi per la discesa al mare (cala del ceppo) diventa più difficile. bambini sopra 12 anni.

beautiful views

We found this by chance as we were traveling thru the area. We had a hard time finding out how to begin the hike. Find the beginning of the tram and head right of the ticket booth. We chose to go right as we approached the loop portion. The stations of the cross our on this side of the loop. Once at top the hill there is a beautiful village that we didn’t expect. The trail weaves thru the village often between properties. Amazing views. Restaurants and a beautiful church await. On the descent we found a dotted line portion that brought us thru an olive grove. A beautiful mistake.

This is not a full loop hiking trail, please read before trying. Right side of map is a two-lane road with no shoulder that is frequented by motorcycles. It made for a dangerous return leg as I traversed the winding asphalt downhill. Eventually I hopped a fence and hiked back to an inner trail just to be safe. The disadvantage was that it forced me up and down twice, for a total of 5111-ft of elevation gain. What should have been a 5-6 hour hike took 7.5. I started at San Benedetto and hiked counter-clockwise toward the Falls. The river and all the small pools and falls were quite pleasant and mostly covered by trees., 5-stars for that leg. The Falls gave way to pleasant meadows and trees. After that it was fire road the rest of the way up to the top and back down to the two lane-road. I give that 4-stars. The inner trails were covered for the most part but I lost one and for a bit. The hike down to San Benedetto was steep, 4-stars. I recommend the loop, as it is indeed difficult, but start at San Benedetto, take the inner trails at the bottom of the loop and stay off the two-lane. I chose this hike because of the similarity to Mt Diablo in California near my home.

Enjoyable loop with great views over Pisa and the coast. It was hot when i walked the track and there is not much shade so wear hat and take plenty of water. Keep an eye on the gps as there are a few path variations and some less obvious tracks.

scramble

WARNING: the hike trail as shown in the map is NOT medium. Hiking up to the summit includes a lot of scrambling with sometimes loose rock and medium to high levels of exposure. There are routes that do not involve the summit which are much easier. I did the hike anti-clock wise, it was easy until the path diverged(one returned to the original starting place and one went to the summit). Shortly after taking the summit route, it led me to a ridge with lots of scrambling up to the summit and a steep cliff behind. Beautiful views from the top, luckily the rest of the hike was much easier after the summit. Great hike overall but rating needs to be changed.

My 10 year old son and I hiked this loop in running shoes on July 12, 2019, all was fine. Very nice views. Be sure to take the road from Molazzana, NOT Perdonica, which is hardly a road, not passable without 4 wheel drive.

Nice walk! Very steeo in the beginning if you take the right choice. Beautiful views!

Great route. I did it with my girlfriend on a hot day in July. The view in top is simply breathtaking and the route to the top is very nice. Small minor is the wat back which was pretty bewildered and it was sometimes hard to get through the plants. Overall, I would defenitely recommand it!

5.8.19. Fabulous views over the Tuscan hills on this short, but spectacular hike. Starting and ending at the Santuario Della Verna monastery, we went clockwise around the loop, stopping to take in the stunning views from the Monte Penna summit. Beautiful Beech and Pine woods all the way, and well marked with red/white blazes. My stats as a guide: Distance: 2.1 miles Elevation Gain: 627 feet Moving Time: 1:00:05

If you're looking for a hike where you can get to know the beauty of the Apuan Alps in Tuscany, and also get a great hike in with tons of awe inspiring view points of Tuscany, this is your hike! Its great for older families, or kids under 8 that are used to hiking. Very do-able!
