For the trek and excursions lovers the territory of Parma is rich with itineraries either for short easy walks and  tracks for more expert hikers, to reach the summits of the Appennino Tosco Emiliano’s crests.

In the Ceno valley around Bardi, where ther’s also the beautiful castle, there are many possibilities to enjoy the nearby woods and mountains, among which the Carameto and Barigazzo.

In the Taro valley, the area around the villages of Borgo Val di Taro, Bedonia and Albareto offers many different paths, as the ones at the valley floor and the ones among the chestnut woods and rivers up on mountains like the amazing Penna.

All these walks can also be made accompanied by the guides of the Associazione Guide Ambientali Escursionistiche Valtaro e Valceno: www.trekkingtaroceno.it

In the national park of the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano as well, there are countless paths on the mountains, in the woods and to the lakes of the Parco dei Cento laghi, among these we point out the ones to the Santo or Ballano lakes, the Monte Marmagna, Monte Orsaro, Monte Sillara or Monte Caio.

In the Baganza  valley, in the Municipality of Calestano, there’s the chance to make a very peculiar experience, under stone towers and grey walls that come out of the woods, near the Scaletta and Cassio mountains: they are the famous Salti del diavolo, formed by polygenic conglomerations on the ocean bottom.

In the provicne of Parma it is also possible to follow the ancient way of the pilgrims: the Francigena’s way. Maps and itineraries available on www.viefrancigene.org/it
