Pietro Valdinoci went for a hike.
August 29, 2020
A nice medium-length itinerary that, crossing the splendid Casentino forests, takes us to the peaks of Monte Falco and Falterona until we discover the source of the Arno River.We start from Passo della Calla and take the CAI 247A path (between the two asphalted roads), then continue on the CAI 253 to the junction with the CAI 251 where we turn left and with a short ascent we reach Fangacci. From here through the small road we arrive at the military base of Poggio Sodo dei Conti where we take the ridge path (CAI 00) that leads us to the summit of Monte Falco and then to the summit of Monte Falterona. Stop for lunch with Consuma's legendary schiacciata with porcini mushrooms!Refreshed we start again following the signs for Capo d'Arno (CAI 3) and soon we reach the source of the river. Then continue on the CAI 3 path reaching the Lago degli Idoli and taking the CAI 4 which with a gentle ascent re-engages the ridge path between Falterona and Falco.For the descent, proceed on CAI 00, passing Poggio Sodo dei Conti and Poggio Lastraiolo until returning to Passo della Calla
