Mt. Penna Ring-route

Chiodo Pass - La Nave - Mt. Penna - Incisa Pass - Small barracks of Penna

On foot         Great Interest: Flora Great Interest: Panorama 
  • Duration: 2 hour/s 30 minutes
  • Difficulty Level: demanding

It is a short itinerary (lasting 2 hours), suitable for people who do not suffer from fear of heights. As a matter of fact, the closest part to the peak is slightly exposed (you can climb from the other slope). It is characterized by the beautiful "Conca della Nave" (characteristic tectonic structure shaped as a ship keel), by the steep northern slope of Mt. Penna, offering an emotional and panoramic view, and by a precious beech tree woodland along the southern slope. The itinerary should be gone through preferably in late summer and autumn, when the yellow of the beech tree leaves dominates the woodland. At Incisa Pass you can decide to continue the route by taking Alta Via dei Monti Liguri until Spingarda Pass or Pratomollo mountain hut, a grassy oasis rich in peculiar botanical species.
