  • Duration: 6 hour/s
  • Difficulty Level: intermediate

It is an itinerary for well-trained hikers (6 hours) characterized by wonderful landscapes and wetlands. The landscape, at the beginning of the route, is Pian d'Oneto, where a karstic phenomenon formed a swallow hole in the middle of a marshy meadow rich in rare marshy plants. Further extremely interesting points are the summit of Mt. Chiappozzo (important passage point of several birds of prey like the Short-toed Eagle, the Buzzard, the Kestrel, and the Northern Harrier) which overlooks Emilian and Ligurian valleys, and Mt. Zatta crest, which is characterized by its outcropping arenaceous banks. The route touches one of the most beautiful beech tree woods in Liguria, on the northern slope of Mt. Zatta. A rare and characteristic feature of the site are the ancient "neviere": they are holes in the ground usually delimited by dried stones, which were used to store the snow for a long time, like refrigerators.
