Route 1
From Pian dei Termini towards Monte Peciano
This is an easy route on rough track. From Pian dei Termini follow a slightly sloping stretch, which leads into a thick conifer wood. Halfway there is a spring water fountain, rich in minerals..
Route 2
ALTERNATIVE ROUTE Towards Monte Gennaio
The route follows well-marked CAI paths that cross the Teso Forest. From Pian dei Termini the route is mostly uphill except a few stretches, until you reach the midway point. Along the path there are great viewpoints looking out onto the Northern Apennines.
Route 3
Circular Cycle path of Pratorsi
It is a brief route of medium difficulty. The first stretch is on an asphalt road that leads to the refuge of Pratorsi, and then continues on both tracks and asphalt road. The gradient and steep downhill stretch make this route particularly unusual.
