710C / Monte Ruvolo
The hiking trail is one of the three connecting trails departing from the route of hiking trail no. 710. It unfolds on a dirt track at a crossroads located near the Piano delle Ginestre plateau and allows hikers to get around the impressive mass of Monte Ruvolo (1410 m a.s.l.) on the North-Northeast side. From this junction, about 250 meters from the start of the route, an unmarked secondary trail leads off to the State Forestry-owned Monte Ruvolo Lodge (1260 m a.s.l.), around which it is possible to observe peculiar examples of lava rocks. Along the trail is also located an example of “Pagghiaro”, i.e., the typical shepherds’ shacks, and a large “dagala” – facing northwest and known as “Le Mandre Vecchie”- set on the 1651 flows and characterized by typical examples of rope-shaped lava. The connecting trail finally merges with the main hiking trail no. 710, where the track from Monte Ruvolo leads to Monte Arso (1517 m a.s.l.) and Monte Lepre (1562 m a.s.l.) by crossing the 1764 flows. Here the second connecting trail no. 710B leads from Monte Ruvolo to Case Zampini Lodge (1350 m a.s.l.).
