Italy trekking information

The tour begins in Castelnuovo Garfagnana, an ancient village reachable by train or bus, and continues on the first day stretching between small villages and the first real attack of the mountain. Il rifugio rosso is the first destination, since the conquest of Pania della Croce in the next day is nereby this rifugio. And there you should stay as long as possible. The southern slopes pass by the Rifugio Del Freo (the splendor of the place urges night here).
The third stage has two alternatives: the first, most recommended, is that from huts Careggine deviates to the west rising to Sumbra, this is climbing of a certain level, but also very easy) and the second, much more soft, to Screeners for Tassetora Valley.
With the backgrounds of Roccandagia, drum and Horse, the 4th day ends in Val Serenaia the slopes of Pizzo d'Uccello Pisanino and in an atmosphere of absolute tranquility.
Two alternatives for the 5th day, for the less daring there is the dull and quiet paved road access (in some impressive points for overlooking the Valley below Serchio), which at one point finds the path that decreases Gramolazzo, where you must stay overnight.
In the 6th day you move away from the Apuan Alps and begins to taste the Apennine territory. The goal is Mount Argegna, conquered by low wooded hills that form the hinge between the two systems surround the natural boundary, consisting of the Mouth of Carpinelli.
The 7 Day marks the conquest of the Tuscan-Emilian Pradarena Pass to serve as a stopping place, although, officially, once the closing was the underlying Sillano huts in a touristic village (to be checked so that possibilities). Fasten the route of the GEA, the Garfagnana Trekking runs along the Soraggio, the leek and the rest before Romecchio Pass the sweet meadows that surround the beautiful Bargetana Refuge. And we are the 9th day, one that leads to the roof of trekking in Tuscany, M. Prado, above 2000 meters shows us a breathtaking 360 degrees. The stage ends in San Pellegrino in Alpe (a sanctuary), where are a couple of opportunities to stay overnight. The GT definitively closes its run down along a stretch where the trail could be very weak and therefore difficult to detect (therefore important to have a good sense of direction and, of course, a map).
