Description:
The Alpe di Cusna (2121 m) is the tallest peak of the Reggiano Apennines and among the tallest of the Central-Northern apennines. It is described in many books as the "sleeping man" due to its long shape, from which the peak decidedly breaks off, making the ridge look like the profile of a human. Its slopes are very steep and difficult to cover in winter. On top of the peak you can admire, if the sky is clear, besides the steep ridges of the Apuane Alps, the Tyrrheanian sea and Corsica. Mount Cusna because of the variety and beauty of its itineraries is a destination especially for expert alpine skiers and excursionists from Italy and abroad. The sides under the peak are full of blueberry moors, glacial basins with numerous indigenous botanical species and marmot dens. Whoever hikes up on Mt Cusna could be lucky and encounter wild ungulates such as the European deer, roebucks and wild boars, you could also encounter marmots and perhaps even the Apennine wolf.
