Walking on the crest: Serra delle Gravare

From the impenetrable forests of Val Fondillo and Valle Fredda to the 1900 mt of Monte San Nicola, from which you can enjoy an unforgettable panorama.

We will go up the Valle Fredda from the "stables" where the shepherds were to winter their flocks, to venture into the thick of the beech wood, as long as the trees leave space for high altitude vegetation. There is still a last effort to slip and reach the summit of Monte San Nicola (1900 mt). We will go through the panoramic crest that separates Lazio from Abruzzo, to retake in the green Val Fondillo, full of spring water and end our hike after about 3 hours of descent. Possible observation of wildlife: especially chamois.
