Mount Bosta: Mountain Bike and Trekking itinerary

At the foot of the Apennines Mount Bosta (864 metres) is a true paradise for those who love trekking and mountain biking. Over the years, the cross of Mount Bosta has become the sacred peak of the sporting event of the year in Lunigiana: the Castagna Bike organized by Due Ruote in Villafranca Lunigiana, which every year attracts around 2500 enthusiastic bikers to the most important sports competition in Lunigiana. From the top of the mountain there is a spectacular view of  the Apuan Alps,  the western part of the Apennines and behind you rises the imposing Mount Marmagna.

The walk to the summit of Mount Bosta is not difficult, approximately 1.5 kilometres, and will be rewarded with a wonderful 360 degree view of Lunigiana.
