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 Montepiano an der Apotheke im spitzen Winkel rechts ab und dann der durchgehend ausreichenden Markierung des 00 folgen. Diese Etappe verläuft überwiegend auf Waldpfaden und teilweise Forstwegen (wobei letztere bei feuchtem Wetter sehr, sehr matschig bis unpassierbar werden!). Vorsicht bei nahenden Motorgeräuschen: Motorcross ist hier beliebt - anscheinend auch erlaubt - und keiner der Fahrer scheint mit Wanderern auf den Wegen zu rechnen. Die letzte halbe Stunde dann auf einer verlassenen Straße bis zum Passo della Futa, wo gegenüber dem Soldatenfriedhof im Kreisverkehr links eine Straße abzweigt, an der wenige Meter weiter ein Albergo auftaucht. Alternative Übernachtungsmöglichkeit in Traversa, 2 km nach Norden, wohin auch ein Bus - unter der Woche auch in häufigen Abständen - fährt.
