HT1 - PIANO d’ORTA (Bolognano) / SAN VITTORINO (Caramanico Terme)

This is a route for normal riders and trained horses, with itinerary on a trail, dirt roads, mule tracks and some sections have to be on ordinary paved roads; the slopes are not very demanding.  The itinerary winds along the splendid Orta Valley which collects the waters of a vast basin, representing one of the most beautiful and wildest areas of the entire Majella National Park.  The route is particularly interesting from a natural and landscape viewpoint with expansive views over the entire Orta Valley framed by the Morrone Mountain, the imposing Majella massif and the hilly zone gently sloping towards the sea.

The Piano d’Orta – San Vittorino stage is the entrance to the Majella National Park bridle path, located in the Piano D’Orta area near the parking area opposite the Enel power station, where vehicles transporting the horses can park.
