Introductory and technical notes

Sui Monti di CampignoSui Monti di CampignoThe itinerary is all embracing and unwinds along the mountains that Campana knew best, in the area of Marradi. The elevation gain is above 580 metres, and it takes roughly 5 hours to walk. Given the elevation gain and, mostly, the length of the route, a certain amount of training is necessary. The paths are well marked and easy to find.
The entire route can be travelled on horseback or by mountain bike (some difficulty may be encountered in the area that from Fosse leads to the mountain crests).

 

Access

From Florence by way of State road n. 302, we reach Borgo San Lorenzo, Colla di Casaglia and, just before reaching Marradi, a locality called Biforco. The road to Campigno is on the right.

 

 

Description on foot

Sui Monti di Campigno - La schedaSui Monti di Campigno - La schedaFrom Campigno you reach the locality of Porcellecchi, on the Apennines crests, as described later in the Marradi - San Godenzo itinerary that traces the steps of Campana. At the fork in the road at 1010 metres above sea level, you leave the trail along the ridge and move left along the CAI n. 541, and the SOFT n.20 trails. The route descends along a forestry path that, once at the secondary watershed between Fosso Campigno and Fosso Chiesine, moves down through sandstone outcrops and beech woods until it reaches Pian degli Arali. Once you reach the house, you leave the trail and move towards the fields. You cross Fosso Chiesine  coasting along the right side, and continue to descend. Once past the crossing with the tabernacle, the route moves along a dirt road and reaches Fango (623 m.a.s.l.). You coast Poggio di Fango (588) heading north and, climbing, pass through a huge chestnut wood until you reach a trail that, on the left, follows the Campigno ditch heading northeast to Farfareta. From here the way back to Campigno is easy.
