Trekking by trainTrekking by trainFrom either the stations in Florence or Faenza, the Faentina railway arrives at the station in Crespino. The train from Florence moves through the Mugello territory to Borgo San Lorenzo and then ascends to the locality of Ronta and later Crespino sul Lamone. The train ride from Faenza, is much shorter and the train stops in Brisighella and Marradi before reaching Crespino (525 metres above sea level).

Finally on foot, the trail sets off from the Crespino station, and crosses the Lamone river. It starts to climb an ancient mountain path towards the Pigara estate (606 m.). The trail then moves through a chestnut wood and later up a steep hill. Higher up along the trail, the path bends left and slightly downwards to the remains of the old Garminana farmhouse.

The trail passes the house and reaches a very scenic position. It continues uphill and to the right as far as the main crest, called Poggio Valdosera (916 m.). The trail moves along the crest and starts to descend rapidly between the river Lamone, left, and the Campigno stream, right. At Mount Villanova, the trail moves away from the crest, and dips steeply down through a green wood to a paved bit of road near Castellaccio, which overlooks the hamlet of Biforco where the Campigno flows into the Lamone. The trail then crosses regional road 302, otherwise known as the Faentina, and takes the road that moves along the left of the river Lamone and towards the station of Marradi.
