Stage 02 - From the Fragno Pass to the Cirone Pass

On foot         
  • Departure: Passo di Fragno (Calestano)
  • Arrival: Passo di Cirone
  • Duration: 9 hour/s 20 minutes
  • Difficulty Level: EE - For expert hikers
  • Length: 27.1 km
  • Difference in height: Uphill 1,169m - Downhill 754m

You climb gently up the cart track towards the Crossing of Monte Prandone (914 m) and towards Monte Montagnana, alternating between the wide meadows of the pastures and the thick beech woods. From here you continue along the wide ridge road, which, however, occasionally has steep gradients that force you to detour into the woods. The next section leads to Monte Cervellino (1,495 m), the highest elevation of the itinerary, where vast meadows with accentuated slopes open up; here the path narrows and presents some passages for experienced hikers. Subsequently, the path continues mainly downhill to the Silara Pass (1,197 m) and from there to the Cirone Pass (1,266 m).
