Trees that touch the sky – Strada delle Cullacce – Campigna
5 km 156m
The educational path "Trees that touch the sky" is located in Campigna, in the heart of the Casentinesi Forests. We are at the beginning of the "Cullacce" road, which seems to have been made specifically for immersing yourself in an outdoor lesson: easily accessible and walkable, it has extraordinary strips of forest and monumental trees. The road is 5 km long and ends at Cullacce, on the outskirts of Sasso Fratino: the “symbolic” center of the Park, an Integral Nature Reserve since 1959 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2017. Along the way we will meet numerous plants and even if we are not experts we could learn to appreciate their differences thanks to information panels with models and shapes to allow the recognition of the trees. The other tree species are identified by tags fixed on poles in correspondence with the most interesting plants. Along the way, some additional labels indicate valuable specimens of the species already identified ... so you can put your knowledge to the test!
Ours wants to be an invitation to walk, observe and recognize ... an invitation to love and respect the Forest that hosts us today.
