Explanation of the characteristics of the routes

Km

indicates the total length of the route from the starting to the arrival point.

Duration

indicates the time needed to complete the route considered an average (in motion) of about 10 km per hour for the mtb routes and 20 km per hour for the road bicycle routes, as well as a tolerance depending on the type of the path.

Elevation gain uphill

this is not the difference between the highest and lowest points reached during the journey, but the elevation gain uphill.
This is the sum of all altitude differences from the point of departure to the point of arrival. In other words, the greater the elevation gain uphill in height and the greater the number of climbs that must be faced, then the path will be harder.

Difficulty

Difficulty is always a very subjective parameter. We tried to give an assessment that considers a level of intermediate training and a good propensity to ride on dirt roads or long climbs sometimes challenging.

% Asfalto / Gravel

indicates, referring to the different locations of the territory of Montaione, the area where the route is located.

Area

The path's graph, indicates the highest and lowest points reached during the itinerary, in addition to the mileage (in km), the various locations touched and where there is the possibility of obtaining water. In the latter case, Montaione Mtb Trail Area relieves itself of any responsibility in case of lack of water supply.

This path starts from "Piazza Gramsci" in Montaione. After leaving the town, turn left following "Via delle Colline" towards Castelfiorentino. Once at km 2.4, take the path on the right that descends to the valley of the "Rio Pietroso". After crossing this small stream, we expect a climb of about 2.6 km to return up to the "Via Volterrana". The first part of this climb (up to "Sant'Ilario") is quite steep and will certainly test your skills as "climbers" due to the slippery and a bit stony ground. The second stretch (from "Sant'Ilario to" Via Volterrana ") will allow you to catch your breath and to enjoy the magnificent panorama of the Valdelsa.
Arrived on the "Via Volterrana" turn right on and after about 1.4 km turn right again following the signs for Montaione. Passing from the locality "Poggio all'Aglione" we return to the starting point.
