Green Itineraries

A network of signed trails was recently restored in the territory of Montaione, which can be travelled by foot, by mountain bike and even by horse, to facilitate the discovery of the territory, entering into contact with the most interesting and typical environments of natural and landscape patrimony: woods and slopes that until a short time ago were places used only by hunters and mushroom gatherers. The routes are organized along 6 trails which are for the most part of the ring variety, so you can leave your car at one point to then return to it at the end of the excursion. Some of the connecting sections can be travelled on asphalt roads. It is always advisable to equip oneself with the map of the routes, on sale at the municipal information office and in local news-stands and tobacco shops. Moreover, it is a good idea to contact the information office to get updates on any changes or interruptions to the routes that could be caused by atmospheric events or road work. The trails differ in length and in degrees of difficulty. They are marked by progressive numbering, which one finds signalled on metal signs along the whole length of the route, while one finds other signs painted in white and red. There are metal signs at the beginning and end of each ring that summarize the particularity of the stretch in question, indicating: viability (on foot, on mountain bike), the start point and end point of the route, distance in km, total gradient in metres and the time it takes to complete the route, with reference to a hiker of average capacity. The trails are also differentiated by the typologies of the areas they cover: some enter forests or run along rivers in valley floors, others travel along the ridges of hill, allowing the eye to roam freely over endless panoramas. Moreover, it is important to underline that, in the course of the route, one often passes through private property or near areas tied to hospitality facilities.
