05 MTB. Tour “Riserva di Poggio all’Olmo”

The nature reserve “Riserva Poggio all’Olmo” with its three mountains “Poggio all’Olmo” (1018m),
“Poggio Materaio” (939m), and “Poggio la Torretta” (854m) starts south of  Monticello just behind the campsite. It’s a foresty area with some single  monumental trees. You are passing several panoramic points with nice views  towards the valley of the Ombrome river, the Monte Amiata and the hills over the Orcia valley.


The first part of the trail is not very difficult. After the highest point on “Poggio La Loggia”, the road leads quite steeply downwards. Here you should take care, the underground is sandy or grown over. The trail is about 8km long and without springs.
