Following the trail of Hannibal

The route winds on the Monti della Laga, on the border between Lazio and Abruzzo, and it connects small towns in the inland of Teramo. Here are preserved valuable and unexpected wonders of art, framed by landscapes where nature is protected and preserved.

Technical description:
The path is for mountain bike lovers: 31 km of medium ups and downs on the Monti della Laga, in the Teramo territory of Crognaleto, in the National Park of the Gran Sasso.
The route starts from Crognaleto and leads first to the village of Cervaro (on a provincial road) and then uphill towards Cesacastina (1,150 mt.). Then the path takes back to Crognaleto on the same roads and it continues on the main road, climbing steadily, to the tiny village of Altovia (fraction of Cortino), located on the way of the Rifugio Cegno at 1,183 meters altitude.
In 7 km you will then return to Crognaleto.
