Pomino is a well known village in one of the Chianti wine geographical regions, famous for the production of Chianti Rufina e Pomino. The Consuma pass is a usual place where people coming from Firenze take tehir rest, and a bit of fresh air, in the unsustainable hot afternoons of summer. This track climbs the mountain of Secchieta-Pratomagno between the two villages, using some comfortable white routes beneath seculary trees.
From the nice, romaneque church in Pomino, the route climbs hardly for some hundreds of meters, then plans and you'll access a dedalus of white routes in the woods. The meeting with wild boars and roe deers is common. Pass over the old foundry and then ruined church of Madonna dei Fossi, then go down until the nice bridge on the river, then rise again on the other side until the crest, along the 00 path (red and white signs). Along the top of Appenin the route follows sometimes the 00 path, some other a less tiring white route, untill the pass of Consuma.
Take your time for a traditional snack (I suggest "schiacciata con i funghi"), then follow the paved route until the access of path n° 5 (red&white signs) quickly running down until the church of Madonna dei Fossi, from where the route follow the first path. Medium Easy.
