The path

The start of the itinerary at the Casetta dei Pinottolai can be reached by car. Once the ticket has been purchased, the visitor center provides an authorization to be affixed to the dashboard in order to leave the car in the loc. Pinottolai.

In the case of online purchase it is mandatory to make a double copy of the voucher and one must be affixed to the dashboard, while the other must be brought with you.

The itinerary goes along the way inside the Gran Duchy pine wood for 1600 m, until to reach the wood bridge, where there's a sign with the indication of A3 itinerary.

Holly oaks and an aromatic Mediterranean bush surround the walk. The “Precoriale” small pond stops, for a short way, the thick wood before to go inside the green. An ancient path, recently restored, guides to one of the most suggestive area in the Park, where there are caves in the ancient cliffs. These caves tell to visitors an ancient historical novel about the first humans of Paleolithic and about shepherds and their herds. Walking along an ancient reclamation canal it's possible to follow the signs to come back.

Booking and guide are compulsory for groups from 20 people.
