Sunday, 12th February Protected content may be yet low season in Liguria, but it’s already time for the first big event of the year, as the mimosa festival unfolds in Pieve Alta on Sunday. Is anyone up for having a hike, starting from Sori? The plan is to head to the picturesque hamlet of Teriasca and then follow the southern segment of the route described at Protected content
(we’ll avoid Mt Possuolo, but we might conquer the peak of Mt Castelletti) This will allow us to get to Mt S. Croce and Pieve Alta while avoiding the competitive run that is being held on Sunday. We’ll likely get to Pieve Alta around 3:00 or 3:30 pm, in time for the festival and the distribution of mimosa flowers. Hike is rated as E (medium), has Protected content of vertical gain, and should take around 3 hours. Return will be around 5 pm, from the station of Pieve Ligure.——————-How to get to Sori, and how to come back alive: On Sunday, 12th February, let’s meet at Protected content
