TREKKING ROUTES IN STIRONE REGIONAL PARK

Gropparello, Lugagnano, Vigoleno
Описание
The Park as we can see it today was born at the end of 2011 by joining Stirone Regional River Park and the Piacenziano Geological Nature Reserve. 
The whole Park is particularly important for its fossils from the Tertiary and Quaternary eras, which were discovered thanks to natural erosion in the area and allowed for the Park to become famous in the scientific domain all over the world.

Детальный маршрут
TREKKING PATHS AROUND THE PIACENZIANO AREA:

Sentiero del Monte Giogo (Lugagnano V.A.)

Length: 3 hours
Difficulty: fairly easy. Mind the altitude gap of 200 m to reach the Cross. There are no water sources along the way.
Despite its simplicity, the ascent to the Cross should be done slowly (especially over the hot summer days), with frequent stops to admire the beautiful landscape with vineyards, which produce the DOC wines Gutturnio and Monterosso. On your right you can see the spectacular amphitheatre made by badlands of Monte Giogo, made of pliocenic marine fossils and clay profiles divided by woods.
 
Sentiero del Monte La Ciocca (Vernasca)
Length: about 1 hour and 45 minutes (return trekking)
In the beginning you will be surrounded by a wood of poplars, elms, willows, locusts and ferns where you can see the relentless activity of squirrels and woodpeckers (green and red). On the ground, the thick mass of blackthorn shrubs hides the hazel dormouse and myriads of other small animals (robins, wrens, etc.).
 
Sentiero del Rio Carbonaro (Lugagnano V.A.)
Length: 2 hours
Difficulty: easy. Mind the mud in some traits especially with rainy weather, make sure you are wearing trekking boots. The path has been partially adapted to allow for disabled people to enjoy the itinerary. There are no water sources along the way. 
Go past Case Cancellieri and after 110 m take the first coutry road on the right. Go past the small stream and turn right on the greenway leading to the trekking path for disabled people. Leave behind you the majestic sandy wall opposite Val Chero (zone no. 2), enter  Rio Carbonaro valley and you can see a small group of alder trees with an interesting underwood that can reach 140 m in height. 
 
Sentiero del Rio Rosello (Gropparello)
Length: 1 hour 30 minutes
Length: 1 km
Difficulty: the path is 1 km long and fairly easy. The first part is on greenland, the return path crosses Rio Rosello several times. Please make sure you are wearing trekking boots or even wellingtons in case of rainy weather. Bring water with you because there are no water sources along the way.
Leave your car and go past Case Badini, where a splendid landscape will catch your eye: a rural environment shaped by human hands with natural resources. On the right of the path there is a long hedge of hawthorn, common dogwood, blackberry, blackthorn, dog rose that house small birds, mammals and harmless snakes.  
 
Sentiero del Rio Stramonte (Lugagnano)
Length: 1 hour 30 minutes
Difficulty: easy. Some traits are uphill and in rainy weather it becomes muddy. Don't forget to wear trekking boots. If you wish to walk up to the badlands, do it at the end of spring or at the beginning of autumn, when the area is not subject to rockfalls. 
Leave your car and read the sign with some information on the protected area. Take the country road on your right until you reach the vineyards on the slope of the hill, enjoy the landscape on Val Chiavenna, on Diolo badlands and on Monte Giogo (to the east). If you take a closer look to the country road and on the edge of vineyards you will see the amount of fossil seashells still visible, a mark of the treasure that lies under our feet. 
 
Sentiero del Torrente Arda (Castell'Arquato)
Length: 2 hours 30 minutes
Length: 2 km
Difficulty: the path is about 2 km long, on a plain road, therefore fairly easy. The path unwinds along the right bank of Arda river, reaching the water only in a few points. Wear your trekking boots or wellingtons to walk safe along the edge of the river. 
Take the country road and slide right, leaving Castell'Arquato bridge. Along the path you will see some "burghe" in between bushes, these are old defence posts made of metal cages full of stones, which used to delimit the river waterflow when it reached this level. The greenery here is made of willows and poplars, but due to human interventions there are also species belonging to arid areas (e.g. shrubs from the Genistae family, downy oaks) and other species like black locust (from North America), and alianthus from central Asia.

TREKKING PATHS ALONG STIRONE AREA:

Sentiero Pietra Nera – San Genesio (Vigoleno)
Length: 2 hours 30 minutes
Length: 3 km
Difficulty: easy, plain path with a short uphill trail to reach Pietra Nera
Park your car near Pietra Nera, a dark ophiolite rock isolated in the environment. Walk to the artificial pond then reach the rocky cliff through a short, uphill path marked by plants that proliferate in arid and sunny areas. 
Once your reach the top, enjoy the beautiful landscape of Stirone valley, overlooking Vigoleno castle and borough on the opposite side. Go back on the same path and walk past Stirone bridge, which separates the provinces of Parma and Piacenza, turn right passing along Case Trabucchi village. On the main road, turn right on the path towards the stream. After 500 m you should reach the "Trabucchi" area with tables, benches and barbecues, and a wood ringpath for disabled people. The surrounding area is very important for the Park because of the presence of numerous protected species, especially orchids.  
Back on the main road, walk past the soccer field and continue on the path that unwinds for 600 m in the wood. 
At some point you should see the oratory of San Genesio, a small church in Romanesque style from the 12th century, where you can see some large downy oaks safeguarding the holy place. 
On your way back you can see the wood of poplars and willows along the stream on one side, and on the other the splendid hills of Piacenza covered in vineyards producing local DOC wines. On the right this rural environment is interrupted by badlands, a complex mixture of cracks constantly eroded by the weather. In spring, these badlands are full of flowers thanks to shrubs from the Ginestae family, the dog rose, blackthorn and dogwood. Here you can also see predatory birds (kestrels and buzzards), reptiles (lizards and snakes), but also hares, hedgehogs, martens, dormouse species, and toads. Such incredible biodiversity exists thanks to a varied landscape but also to the numerous local bushes and trees that still today mark the edge of farmers' properties.
