Route details
Rifugio Cà Carnè - Croce di Rontana - Vespignano - Via Castelnuovo - Rifugio Cà Carnè

An easy itinerary along the ridges between the valleys of the Lamone and Sintria rivers. Gypsum crests in Castelnuovo overlook a dolina, a typical morphological formation from the Vein of Gypsum Park. From the cliffs exposed to the south you can admire the characteristic vegetation of the Gypsum with wide spots of Mediterranean scrubland. In this stretch of land, with a bit of luck, you may find porcupine quills, the long tufts of hair made into spiny clumps.

Not to be missed:
The Visitors Centre at the Cà Carnè Refuge is a site rich in information (in particular on fauna) and suggestions for Park guests to visit: in the surrounding areas numerous karstic clefts, mostly high-rising abysses – suitably fenced– can be found and special surface phenomena, such as candle-erosions, which can be visited by going down the new “Abyss trail”. The Refuge restaurant is a must-try, with many exclusive local products.
