The whole plateau complex can be considered a mostly unexplored
reservoir to carry out research activities on vegetation through the
study of the pollen: of particular importance, the phytosociological
study of Colfiorito Marsh.
The system of the so-called "castellieri", and in particular the one of Mt. Orve, is another important field of archaeological-paleontological research which can also contribute to establish the links between the lost and the most recent vegetal landscapes and their relationship with the human presence.
Colfiorito is situated in the heart of an interesting prehistorical itinerary system. Among the itineraries, Spina road towards Spoleto, Via Plestina towards Topino valley and Forum Flaminii, and the itinerary along Menotre valley.
Last but not least, "Sentiero Italia" goes from the nearby Mt. Pennino across Colfiorito to Mt. Tolagna and this stretch is characterized by interesting scientific and cultural features.
