How to get there:
The Prati di Sara are reached:
- from Ligonchio along the CAI path 635 (3h30')
- from Passo Cisa along the CAI path 623 and 625 (1h30')
- from Casalino along the CAI path 625 (2H00')
Casalino is found 1 km from the SP Ligonchio - Villa Minozzo and 7 km from the administrative capital.
One kilometer after the location of Ca' Bracchi, coming fro Castelnovo Monti, you go left at the intersection.
Parco Nazionale dell'Appennino Tosco-emiliano
Following the CAI 625 path you reach the peak of Mount Cusna.
The Prati di Sara, almost flat, highland grasslands (1610 m) surrounded by beechwood are found at the foot of Mt Cusna. From here a large section of the Reggiano Apennines can be seen. The grassy turf of the Prati di Sara is characterized by the presence of gramineae, but in the late spring and summer you can admire the flowering of gentians, orchids and wild carnations. The color it has in Autumn, a ‘burnt by the sun yellow' is spectacular
