Location: SP 66 Guspini – Montevecchio; Località Perda Cuaddu; Monte Maiori
Length: mt. 5300
Journey time: 1h 40 ’
Difficulty: Tourist (with a total height difference of 150 meters and a refreshment point).
The path starts along the S. P. 66 Guspini – Montevecchio in Perda Cuaddu and is
characterized by a first asphalt stretch for about 1.2 km and by a second dirt road. Those who come from Guspini leave the S.P. at the end of the ascent of Mustazzera, 141 m above s.l., where a sign invites you to turn right towards the NE. Sauces, a low cistus scrub, myrtle and mastic tree accompany a long stretch of the path, alternating with cereal sown fields and vast grassy extensions; there is no lack of pretty houses with well – kept gardens. Once past the old railway that connected the Montevecchio mine to the San Gavino station, you will reach the bridge over the Rio Montevecchio, which marks the eastern border of the SIC area (a site of community importance) in the Pratzidus area. Leaving the relief of Cugui to the south, the dirt road definitely points towards the highest mountains, still far to the west, going up the valley on the right side of Rio Funtana Lucida. The countryside alternates large grassy areas, fields planted with fodder and cistus and lentisk bushes, with some elements of tree size. The name of the locality of Campu Ollastu is owed to the abundance of olive trees. At the foot of Cuccuru Mudu the most challenging stretch begins, both for the slope that becomes more evident, and
for the road surface that is more ruined by the flow of water. rainwater. Shortly after a ford of one of the different tributaries of Rio Funtana Lucida there is a widening and a bifurcation. If you want to drive forward, continue straight ahead to Monte Maiore.
Alternatively we suggest the road on the right that leads to a path, parallel to the Rio Gora Genna Pruna, completely immersed in the vegetation and where it is possible to admire numerous specimens of cyclamens, buttercups and wild mint, as well as numerous other tree species.
