Ponte Verucchio – Torriana – Uso – Ginestreto – Giungla dei Castagni – Montebello – Madonna di Saiano – Ponte Verucchio

You set off from Ponte Verucchio towards Madonna di Saiano. A first leg on a paved road and a steep ascent take you to the fortress of Torriana to the “I Malardot” restaurant. Then keep left on a disused road (blocked off with a rope) and continue on a steep descent on the path until you get to the Uso river where you turn in the direction of Masrola-Ponte Uso. After a couple of kilometres, there is a dirt road on your left that takes you up to Ginestreto. Pass this, and then ascend on a narrow crest path towards the Giungla dei Castagni, the “top” part of the trail. Now turn left onto anarrow crest path again and go down to the trail after a couple of metres. Turn off at the third left turn and you get to a panorama point; then keep right when the road forks off. After passing Monte Matto, a few ups and downs in the road take you to the fortress of Montebello. Go down towards Torriana to Madonna di Saiano and then to the Marecchia river. A few kilometres more and you are back at your starting point.
