The Recommended Route is exactly as per the Tuscany North book. It is a "There & Back" walk comprising an ascent to the ridge and a ridge walk/scramble to reach the summit.
From the junction of the minor road and the quarry road, drive along the quarry road for 200m to a small car park on the right. From here take path 35, which initially climbs steeply soth-westwards through woodlands to rejoin the old quarry road after 0.6 miles.
Turn right and follow the quarry road which climbs steadily westwards, via a series of zigzags. These are occasionally replaced by sections of steeper footpath which shortcut some of the bends on the road.
After some 800m of this fairly gradual ascent, with increasingly spectacular views back over the Arnetola valley, the ridge is reached at Passo della Tambura .
Here turn right, northwards, to make a steeper and increasingly rocky ascent along the ridge to the summit (250m in 0.5 miles). There is some mild exposure on the ridge.
From the summit, the views of much of the Apuane are truly magnificent. Return by the same route.
