Stage description

N.B.: We don't have an English description of the stage just yet. We'll give you the German version for now until the English version is ready.

In Badia Prataglia der Hauptstraße bis zum Ortsende folgen und dort rechts abbiegen auf eine Straße Richtung Chiusi della Verna. Der Straße folgt man geraume Zeit. An einem Sägewerk geht es links ab und folgt längere Zeit einem Bach, zum Schluss geht es auf einem Pfad steiler aufwärts zum Passo dei Mandrioli. Hier geht es nach rechts dem GEA folgend auf befestigten Wegen und kleinen Pfaden überwiegend durch Buchenwald. Höchster Punkt ist der Poggio Montalto (1302 m). Weiter geht es auf Pfaden zum Poggio Tre Vescovi. Weiter auf dem GEA Richtung La Verna. Vom Passo delle Gualanciole längere Zeit auf breiter Forststraße bis kurz vor den Monte Calvano, wo man eine wunderschöne Rundsicht hat. Dann teilweise steiler Abstieg zum Croce della Calla. Weiter auf breiten Wegen zum Kloster Santuario della Verna, wo man auf den Spuren des heiligen Franz übernachten und essen kann. Weiter nach Chiusi Della Verna.
