When trekking, be aware that footpaths may be hidden by vegetation and make sure you stay on the indicated paths, paying particular attention to places where paths cross. If you get lost, it is recommended that you retrace your steps. It is important that all those trekking take the appropriate maps available at the Ufficio Informazioni Turistiche in Castelnuovo Garfagnana. Most importantly, wear the proper garments: walking boots, long and loose trousers and a raincoat in case of rain. Take a backpack, a walking stick, an army knife and a flash light. Don’t forget to take a first aid kit in case of emergency.
