Snowshoe hike to Mt. Tranquillo and the Sanctuary of Madonna Nera
Centuries-old beech woods and wide clearings
Thursday 15 March 2018 from 15:00 to 09:00
A historical and cultural itinerary on the border between Abruzzi and Latium; the trail our grandmothers used to walk to barter wool blankets with food; a panoramic view over the whole protected area.
Programme: Meeting in Pescasseroli at "Il bel sentiero" hiking centre at 9.30 am. Departure by car (a short stretch to the trail's point of departure). Snowshoe hike through Difesa di Pescasseroli, a characteristic place to which pollarded trees and peculiar shapes give the look of an enchanted wood. The trail goes on uphill to Camporotondo and then to the sanctuary of Madonna Nera on Mt. Tranquillo, which used to be a shelter for wanderers. Back to the point of departure through the hidden hills, where wolves habitually dwell.
A delicious hot chocolate will welcome us back at a café in Pescasseroli old town.
