As mentioned, the Fairy Wood is the starting point for numerous trails of varying degrees of difficulty.

For children accustomed to trekking, the hike to Mount Gifarco , with the peculiar sword embedded in the rock at its summit, is a really nice one! For more information, you can read this article.

Those who prefer to stretch their legs without exerting too much effort, the 30-minute loop trail starting at the football field is more suitable.

Follow the sign for Mount Gifarco and after a few minutes you will find the sign for the start of the trail. The path is also easily accessible for children, but is not suitable for pushchairs.

In the area, it is also possible to practice orienteering, i.e., with a map in hand and possibly the aid of a compass, one can go in search of points called ‘lanterns’ on various paths in the forest.
