Trekking in Garfagnana: ring of Monte Forato
Excursion in the Apuan Alps to a place unique for the particularity of its hole, which has always attracted hikers, travelers and scientists

At 1,223 meters high, Monte Forato is certainly not one of the highest mountains in the Apuan Alps chain, but it is certainly the most distinctive. Our route starts from the characteristic village of Fornovolasco, overlooked by the "queen" of the Apuan Alps, the "Pania della Croce".

A ring-route will take us up along the ancient salt road to Foce di Petrosciana, from where we can admire another particular Apuan peak, Mount Procinto and its characteristic cylindrical shape. Leaving the small pass that descends towards Versilia, we continue our route along a beautiful and panoramic ridge with splendid views of the Tyrrhenian coast and other beautiful peaks such as Monte Croce.

We will soon leave the ridge to enter a beautiful beech wood. The arch of Monte Forato suddenly appears, allowing us to glimpse the sea in the distance. After stopping for lunch in front of the arch, we begin our descent along a path that will give us other beautiful views of "Pania della Croce" and the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines in the distance.
