TOUR 6: “The Dead Man of the Garfagnana”
Walk up Pania Della Croce 1858m, from Piglionico, via Rif Rossi, one of the best views to be had of the coast from the summit from the dead man’s stomach. Also the choice of Pania Secca. If you are wondering what the Dead Man is, then….at a certain angle in the Garfagnana, when you lookat the Mountain, you have a head which is very pronounced, with fore head, nose and chin, the stomach is the Pania della Croce, then there are Knees and the Feet at Pizza di Saette. Looks like a person lying on its back. The Dead Man of the Garfagnana. Best views of the coast, and real high mountain feel without the difficulty. Moderate level– some scrambling on way up and down– 6hrs
