Length: 7.3 km
Difference in altitude: uphill 472 m – downhill 127 m
Duration: 3 hrs
For more than half of this stage, we walk on the old traces of the railway, built on the slopes of these limestone-dolomitic mountains for the transportation of minerals.
In the second part of the route, a comfortable dirt road, which gradually plunges into the woods, leads us to the Case Marganai (Marganai houses).
It’s a very short and easy stage, recommended if you want to spend a carefree day immersed in a beautiful mountainous environment while visiting the Linasia garden and easily reaching the Punta San Michele (906 m) peak.
