712 / Fontana Murata – Pista Altomontana
The State Forestry-owned Case Boscochiuso are located in the municipal area of Maletto at an altitude of 1218 m a.s.l., immediately after the entrance gate to the Boscochiuso State Forestry Property. At Hiking Base Point, they can be reached from km 8 of the S.S. 284 road, following rapidly ascending municipal cart track turning south-east.
With an additional 4.3-km walk and overcoming a 408 metres difference of altitude, from Case Boscochiuso it is possible to reach the Pista Altomontana at an altitude of 1626 m and then hike along either North- or Southbound. The route consists of a small track for forest use, unfolding across a territory which remains unscathed by recent lava flows and therefore entirely covered with tall trees, featuring different species of oaks in the lower, warmer, part, and the increasing presence of splendid beech trees in the upper part.
