The area of Rincine verlaps with the Southwestern face of Monte Massicaia, a transition zone between the country landscapes of Valdisieve and the forests of Casentino National Park. The route can start by the handsome artificial lake of Londa, with parking and food facilities. We go up to the main road 556 and we follow on the right for a short stretch until meeting a secondary road starting on the right and leading to Rincine. Rincine is a small village of few buldings, cross it and pass first the church and then the Comunità Montana center.
From here turn left and, after some houses, pass the gate and follow the unpaved road continously rising in the forest, just sometimes opening the view on the wonderful landscape of Mugello and Valdisieve valleys. Reached XXX, we shortly go down then up keeping the left until the site of I Piani, the top of the tour. The view is wonderful, the site a few less given that we follow now the buried gas pipeline. In an environment of scrub and spotted forest the road runs on the top, then go down in the woods meeting the chapel of Tizzano and after an untouched original country village, Il Palazzo. From there the road becomes paved but still small and lovely, reaching Londa at the end. Few hundreds of meters on the main road on the left and we'll be back to the starting point. Medium-Easy.
