The itinerary leaves from the dirt road climbing to the summit of Mt. Mauro (515 meters), the highest summit of Vena del Gesso.
This itinerary, the most complete and fascinating which gives the opportunity to discover all the main features of Vena del Gesso Romagnola Park, is characterized by a length of about 11 kilometers and a walking time of about 6 hours, without considering the stop for the packed lunch you can eat in one of the many clearings you will meet along the way. The stretch going along the gypsum ridge, between Mt. della Volpe and Mt. Mauro, requires some attention, above all in case of rain.
You can also take this itinerary from Borgo Rivola, from the car park the Park has equipped as departure point of both Riva di San Biagio ring-route and Mt. Mauro ring-route, crossing the valley bottom SP road and going downhill until you reach a well-marked trail leading to the oxbow of torrent Senio, after crossing a small footbridge. Once you reach the opposite bank of the torrent, go uphill towards Crivellari along an asphalt road developing in the woodland of downy oaks, hop hornbeam, and manna ash.
