I Patriarchi del Pollino
Reaching the top of the Pollino, the second highest mountain. Cross a beechwood destroyed by an avalanche in 1993. Aerial view of the rocky ridges inhabited by the “Pini Loricati”. This area is frequented by the Eagle and the Peregrine Falcon. It allows you to reach the oldest specimens of Loricato Pine in Pollinello (including “the patriarch”, 930 years old). You cross an area that has undergone a notable renewal of Loricati Pines. The difficulty of this route can be reduced by avoiding the ascent to the peak and / or walking it in reverse.
