The Energy's Path

The Energy's Path

This path crosses the big lakes of Bolognese Apennines, among dams, hydroelectric systems and other related infrastructural works. The topic is water and clean energy that it generates, so this is the reason of the name of this path.
The trek mostly goes through the park of Suviana and Brasimone lakes, where you can appreciate the naturalistic beauties of the park.

This itinerary starts from Ponte della Venturina and goes through a long section of Alta Via dei Parchi.
The topic is water and clean energy that it generates. We will run into three important catchments: Pavana, Suviana and Brasimone. These basins are built by man to erect hydroelectric systems. So the peculiarity of the whole itinerary is water. Most of the path is within the Lakes' Park of Suviana and Brasimone, for this reason the naturalistic features are of high value.
There are many ungulates such as the deer that lives here since years and that arranged numerous colonies.
The main town we reach is Castiglione dei Pepoli, with its Palazzo Pepoli and one of the most characteristic squares in Bolognese Apennines. We suggest you to visit the Earth hall and the Direttissima's exhibition that you can find to the City Library, which is just a short walk from the city centre.
The path ends at the train station of San Benedetto Val di Sambro where you can go back to Bologna by train.
The legs are quite long so we suggest you a little bit of training.
