La Cinghialona

To reach the summit of Monte Castellana, start point of the route, you can get going from the coast, alternating sections on asphalt with dirt roads, mostly easy except for the last 50 m, enjoying stunning views of amazing places like Monte Muzzerone, Portovenere headland, the church of San Pietro or the Palmaria and Tino islands and the tiny Tinetto island; along the last section you can admire the panorama of the Gulf of Poets.
As soon as you reach Le Grazie, the route instantly offers you a breathtaking view. Ride along the wide track for about 200 m; at the end of which you will enter a forest. After 150 m the track takes you back to a dirt road that reaches a left turn. From there, technique and adrenaline will come into play and will accompany you to Case Bondoni, and then to the end point of the route at Le Grazie.
