Stories, information and comments from Passo Carpinelli climbers
Story by Michael Huggins from Ramsbottom, United Kingdom, submitted on 04/02/2008
I have done this a couple of times from the Lunigiana side, i.e. from the west. The climb is marked here as starting from a junction much further back down the road. However, the ascent really starts just short of Casola in Lunigiana. From there, the route is 10.4 kilometres at about 5.2 per cent. This figure gives a better measure of the climb than the one given here. The road surface is good for most of the climb, and the views of the Apuane and Appenini mountains are marvellous. Most recently I did this on Monday 24th March 2008 on a fine morning. Wish I was there now! After Carpinelli I descended to Piazza al Serchio, turned right through Nicciano and up to Gramolazzo. Theres a couple of miles uphill after that to the Minnuciano tunnel. Two hundred metres after this you can take a left via the villages of Ugiancaldo, Mezzana, Monzone and Gragnola, retuning to the Aulla valley at Gassano. If you started from Carrara, Aulla, Sarzana, or La Spezia, you could make a good day out of this circuit. There are lots of cafes, restaurants, bars and water fountains on the ride. Motor traffic is very light after Casola. This is a recommended ride through a beautiful, laid-back part of Tuscany.
