The red color is assigned to the trail n°4. The path is ring and is marked with directional green and light blue arrows. The trail starts from the main car park of Colle di Buggiano, where you can park for free.
From the car park you go up the ancient paved road leading to the medieval village and in a few minutes you reach the main square outside the walls, where you can admire the Romanesque Church of S.Lorenzo. From the square through the door you walk through the small village, let yourself be inspired by the small streets that you will encounter will take you all to the exit.
When you reach the north gate, you leave the village behind and following the arrows you arrive at the provincial road to the locality Margine dei Ferri. Going to the left and then immediately to the right continue to Le Poiane, proceed walking next to the river Cessana between oaks and chestnut trees until you reach the ruin of an ancient nineteenth-century powder keg.
The country’s elders say that during World War II all gunpowder was hidden under this bridge.
From this point the path begins to climb and you reach the holiday home La Pace. Taking the road to the left, third intersection, continue to go up to a fourth intersection where you have to turn right and continue uphill for about 2 kilometers until you reach the asphalt road of Via Stradella (which leads to Uzzano) and continue to the locality Pianacci, where you will see a wonderful view of the city of Pescia and the plain of Lucca.
In Folavento you have to leave the asphalt road and take the path on the left (fifth intersection) and keeping left you go down along woods and olive groves to reach Campioni, a very panoramic area. From here we take the sixth junction on the left that will lead you back to the mill of Maciste. Descending from the path of pebbles you will find crossed on the provincial road Colligiana asphalt and continue to the parking lot of Colle di Buggiano, where the route began and where it ends.
