Badolo - Brento - Monzuno - 
Madonna dei Fornelli

Length: 28 km 

Difference in altitude: +1460 m; -1038 m 

Time: 9.50 h  

Continuing the path you arrive in Brento and skirt the Center for the Protection and Research of Exotic and Wild Fauna of Monte Adone . Turn right and follow the road that then leads to the top of Monte Adone (follow the CAI 110 Monte Adone path), to avoid it in case of heavy rain or tiredness, continue on the direct path to Brento. We are in the heart of the Pliocene Contrafforte and at the  Croce di Monte Adone (which are actually 2!) Take some time to enjoy the silence and the beautiful panorama.

 

Going down towards Brento , you arrive at the town with the sports center (with services, bars and a restaurant) where you can rest before the long stretch that connects Brento to Monterumici and then Monzuno. The route included a long asphalted stretch which, in 2021, was replaced thanks to the commitment of the Municipality of Monzuno and the CAI volunteers, so you will find new directions to get away from the road and follow it in nature. For those tired, however, along the main road, in the locality of Bivio Furcolo, there is the possibility of taking the bus to Monzuno (due to the covid emergency, however, the ticket must be done before getting on the bus or use linked apps).

Once in Monzuno (refresh and rest, it can also be an excellent alternative as a stopping point if you walk it in 6 days), from Piazza XXIV Maggio continue on the paved road towards Madonna dei Fornelli, pass the junction for Loiano and go towards the fields sports where, turning right, you will take a large uphill cart track. After about 20 minutes you will reach the “ Campagne ” location where the CAI 019 - VD route is signposted.

Cross (CAI path n. ° 19) a gate in a beautiful chestnut wood until you reach the Telecom repeater already identified the day before from Monte Adone.  From here, follow the dirt road to the houses of Le Croci. Short climb up to Monte Galletto and then on a dirt road you reach Madonna dei Fornelli (about 3 hours from Monzuno).
