The Stage is to be divided into two emotional states, the first a bit boring and tiring the second relaxed and natural.

Description of the trail
Leaving the Bel Borgo of Castel di Tora; crossing in full its historic center, go down a road with direction Vallecupola, and then take Via delle Crete for about 80 meters. Turn right into a side road that must be covered for about 300 meters, take a concrete road uphill for about 1km where on the right side you can admire Mount Navegna 1508 m. After the concrete road crosses the asphalt road that leads to Vallecupola and it goes uphill for about 1 km and at a hairpin bend you leave it going to the right for a dirt road for about 4 m. Intercepted the Valcupi ditch, where the Cervia and Navegna Mountains Nature Reserve begins, the path runs along the ditch until you reach the Forc of Vallecupola at about 100 m altitude and from there you enter the Sentiero Italia for about 1 km towards the village of Vallecupola.
Not far from the village of Vallecupola you leave the dirt road that leads you to a left to continue bordering large meadow meadows on the right and on the left having the impluvium not far away. After a while another carrareccia intersects with CAI trail and from here the path, which
follows an ancient mule track, enters into an extensive, centuries-old and evocative chestnut forest. There will be many meetings with different patriarchs with incredible dimensions of the trunk, very often hollow and partly or completely collapsed, where from the same edges were
born, like suckers, other chestnuts of considerable size.
This show will accompany you for several kilometers until you come out on a short stretch of bush until you reach a wide dirt road driveway. From here and until the end of the stage you will always walk on white roads. Continuing uphill you reach a beautiful and wide meadow saddle
(there is a panel of the Reserve of Cervia and Navegna) and continue on the road that goes to the right. You cross a wood across, cross a whole valley climbing without many gradients, and then a tight hairpin climb up to another narrow pass and into the woods.
We are not on high altitudes but the predominantly arenaceous lands have been modeled with rather steep slopes. Along another hill and with the road that improves as a fund, begins the approach to Marcetelli. Shortly before entering the asphalt, you leave the main dirt road for a less evident on the left and that leads to cut a series of curves. It is now upstream of the country.
