This route travels along easy to follow CAI footpaths, which crosses what is considered to be one of the most beautiful areas in the Pistoia Mountain Range, taking you to the top of the “Tre Potenze”, the old border between the land of the Grand Duke of Tuscany and those of Modena and the state of Lucca. From the top there is an incredible view.
The route follows, almost completely, a rough track, which crosses the beech wood of Pian di Novello. It is not seen as a difficult route but due to the considerable ups and downs, being in good physical shape is a must.
