Aspromonte is rich in wonderful and charming landscapes, in trails offering great and different panoramas and giving the opportunity to cross places where the sea and the mountains seem so close that they become one thing. Following the trails, it is possible to entirely cross Aspromonte and enjoy the view of its various natural beauties, from the waterfalls to the narrow deep valleys, from the historical monuments to the small villages and the several rocky formations. If you love nature, you will be amazed by the huge centuries-old tree forests and the presence of rare wildlife like the roe deer which, thanks to Aspromonte National Park Authority, has come back to live in our woodlands.
Resolution of the Board of Directors no. 20 dated 17.07.2012, with a successful outcome provided by M.A.T.T.M. with note prot. no. 0023943 dated 18.09.2012 - PNM-V, through which the Land Register of the Park Trails has been adopted.
Three itineraries have been realised, marked with special signs, for those who want to discover the wonderful landscapes of the Aspromonte National Park by mountain bike.
An evocative journey on foot, from Aspromonte to Serre, through areas of great naturalistic interest, lush forests, rushing torrents, placid streams, waterfalls, alpine and Mediterranean landscapes, rural settlements, noble residences, inhabited centres, architecture, sites of industrial archaeology, evidence of an important, unknown, controversial history, still to be written. An unforgettable experience for the diversity of cultural contexts, ways of life and environments of the places crossed. An extraordinary "Path" in the footsteps of rebels, brigands and fugitives from every era, in an area strongly characterised by identity and authenticity. An unexpected welcome in what, for too long, has been considered as a hostile and impenetrable mountain.

This hiking trail has born in 1994 in the Aspromonte National Park, in the footsteps of the traveller on foot "par excellence" of the Greek Calabria, the English landscape architect Edward Lear, belonging to the XIX century. This trail has an unparalleled reception system in Italy, managed directly by the local community: L'Ospitalità Diffusa.
This hiking trail develops in seven stages.
