An excursion from Pomezzana to Farnocchia

Camaiore

From the square in front of the Municipal Palace, follow the signs to Stazzema and begin going up an asphalted road past several small, local districts. After about two kilometers, you’ll find a fork in the road. Go right toward Farnocchia-Pomezzana, following the path that will lead you through lovely chestnut forests. At the next fork in the road, go left toward Pomezzana. Before you reach Pomezzana (after about 3.5 km), you’ll find a iron-working company called Milani. Once past their facility, go uphill toward the right. The narrow asphalted road will lead you past several houses. Continue to stay right at each junction you pass. At a certain point, you will reach a fountain; from there on, the road becomes a gravel road with several steep slopes. Follow this path until you reach Foce di San Rocchino. From there, go westward toward an open field. On the right-hand border, you’ll find a flat path which crosses the forests that lie under Monte Gabberi. This route will take you along the seaside during various segments. Various downhill sections follow. There, it will be necessary for bikers to dismount and walk. After 4.5 km, you’ll find yourself near the town of Farnocchia. From here, you can take the asphalted road for about 6 km in order to reach your point of departure.
