Hiking trails in Castelluccio

Itinerari alla scoperta dei Monti Sibillini tra flora, fauna e paesaggi unici
The Antica Cascina Brandimarte proposes an exploration of the upper valley and some walk on a higher altitude for a photographic view over the whole valley.
Castelluccio’s Pian Grande provides us with a variety of paths in the plane as the path leading to Fosso dei Mergani and Inghiottitoio.
It is said that the Pian Grande was originally a large lake and in circumstances that are still little known it drained naturally, a tectonic fault line of the mantle created these cracks in the ground that suck the water underground. Where in fact end the drained water still remains a mystery, the most likely hypothesis is that recur on the surface 700 meters downstream in the town of Norcia, creating a series of fields that are called “rotten” because constantly impregnated of water.
Simple but effective also the road that leads to Pantani of Accumoli, a protected oasis in Forca Canapine, where we find animals that graze freely in an area where natural lakes are formed.
By adding a small climb, we find paths that start from the main square of Castelluccio as the path that leads to Mount Veletta and Mount of Roses. The second part of this path comes down a gully until reaching Canatra Valley, where we find a drinking trough for animals looking at Pian Perduto.
Antica Cascina Brandimarte’s staff loves accompany guests in the scenic and simple outputs of mid-day, to enjoy the scenic beauty of the valley and the mountains.
