The project “La Via dei Cairoli” - with its 65 km of bicycle path - crosses some forest areas of great natural and landscaping interest. This area is in the center of our reconstruction programs of the local ecological network.

They include both important and extensive forests of black alder distributed at the foot of the Pleistocene terrace, both lowland forest formations located in flood plain area.

In this areas you can meet roe deer, fallow deer, marten, stone marten, badger, red fox, but also numerous diurnal and nocturnal raptors, eight different kind of herons, dragonflies, butterflies. There is also a small number of endemics such as Italian Agile Frog, Common Spadefoot. These are just some of many species still present in this area thanks to protection.

Some of these forest areas are equipped with visitor center, hides, picnic area or staff. Few of these forest areas are accessible just by reservation or in some special occasions.

There is also a possibility of joining the numerous educational tours for schools developed by the Associations (“Uomo e Territorio Pro natura”, “Amici dei Boschi”, “LIPU”).
The access to the dogs is generally forbidden in this areas even hold on the leash.
